Romelu Lukaku returns to Manchester United training ahead of derby

Jose Mourinho mastered yet another remarkable comeback this week

United's Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial as well as City's Benjamin Mendy are set to head to the French capital by private jet after the game at the Etihad Stadium to celebrate a friend's birthday.

In contrast, United are languishing down in an unfamiliar seventh place, already nine points behind their city rivals after losing three of their opening 11 league matches.

Lukaku, who has scored four goals for United this season, missed Wednesday's 2-1 win at Juventus in the Champions League as well as last weekend's 2-1 Premier League victory over Bournemouth.

United's ability to snatch late goals under former manager Alex Ferguson was one their most potent weapons, an ability they have not managed to display with any sort of regularity since the Scot retired.

The game against United may not have gone in Juve's favour but Dybala, who hit the bar with a stunning curling effort from outside the area, was thrilled with his new footwear.

"I think there should be reaction and passion at the end of a match".

Kevin de Bruyne, Eliaquim Mangala and Claudio Bravo are long-term absentees.

"So, I just want to play the match as an isolated event: hard match against a very hard team".

Mourinho sidestepped the allegations against Sunday's opponents and instead praised a side that he hopes to go toe-to-toe with, just as he did at Juventus and in the recent 2-2 draw at Chelsea.

Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera believes the team have shown they can thrive as underdogs and will look to secure another statement win in Sunday's derby.

First-half strikes from Nabil Fekir and Tanguy Ndombele put Lyon in control at the Groupama Stadium, and Kasim Nuhu's sending off shortly after the restart left Hoffenheim with a mountain to climb. He makes things happen and opens the game up for the midfielders to work their magic.

'I told him there was no need, I didn't insult him. As per reports, he only talks to David De Gea, Juan Mata and Romelu Lukaku, and that behaviour of his has not gone down well among other members of the squad who find it odd.

The Belgium global will return to the squad when they visit local rivals Manchester City if he comes through training without incident.
