Grueling season taking its toll on injury-hit Man United

David De Gea

Chris Smalling is still nursing a knee injury, Phil Jones remains out with a foot problem while Marcos Rojo has been ruled out for several months with a serious knee ligament injury. The Man City striker was involved in the most controversial moment of what was a relatively uneventful match against rivals Man United.With time running out, and with Marouane Fellaini already on a booking, Fellaini tripped the Argentine forward. I think Eric and Daley played again absolutely awesome [against City]. City dominated the possession, but besides a shot off the post from a bad angle by Aguero, City didn't do enough to create unsafe scoring chances.

"Mourinho and Tuanzebe against Swansea", he joked.

His display in the win over Crystal Palace in last season's FA Cup final was not one of the highest quality, but the fight and desire he had in abundance when he was 16 appeared to be back.

United may have Juan Mata, sidelined since the middle of March, available for Swansea but France worldwide Paul Pogba remains out with a leg muscle injury and is being saved for Thursday's Europa League semi-final with Celta Vigo.

"It is a big change because in the past United were always able to dominate", he said. "Yeah, it's an option".

Guardiola said City's struggles in front of goal meant their run-in would be far from straightforward. "We have (Ander) Herrera and (Michael) Carrick and nothing else".

Yaya added: "There's no doubt that Manchester United's history and achievements are greater than ours but we're coming!"

"Gabriel is coming. At the moment it is quite hard because we are missing the goal but if we have a striker who is going to score a goal it is going to make quite a difference for us". And yet, United control their own destiny and can finish in the top four when it matters.

"To have lots of players not playing is something the players don't want".

"First of all, we have played I think 18 more matches than Liverpool", Mourinho said.

"Yes, we haven't got too much time for recovery and to prepare for the game but, from now until the end of the season, we play every few days, so we have to be ready", he said.

"We are arriving at an extreme situation where now it must be unique to football".

"I don't think we (will) recover any of the others". And against Anderlecht, I have two in one match. "We are very unlucky, that's all we can say".
