"Manchester United want to qualify for the Champions League. It will be an intense 90 minutes."

On Mo Salah's form: "Mo is going through a completely normal spell with the physical demands over the last few months. I liked the game against City a lot. It's only a question of time when he scores as well."

Mane and Diaz: "I've known Sadio nearly six years and he has never needed any competition to try to be the best version of himself. I don't think Luis is the reason that Sadio has now scored four goals."
