English teams always looking for the set-pieces.

"When they have the ball the people up front can create something. Wow".

Guardiola also played down talk that United are not the force they once were, citing their impressive results recently as a reason to not to underestimate the threat they still pose.

Mourinho, asked whether the wish was to go toe-to-toe with Pep Guardiola's team, said: "We are going to try".

But Guardiola claimed United, who have secured comeback wins in their last two matches against Bournemouth and Juventus, can not be discounted from the fight for top spot.

A series of allegations published by German magazine Der Spiegel in recent days claim City attempted to bypass UEFA's Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations, but the English champions showed no signs of distraction as they swatted the Ukrainian aside and took control of Group F.

Whatever United's plans, they must involve what has been a problem for most Etihad visitors though, and that is staying in the game.
