'Mourinho knows how to stop City'
The Blue side of Manchester has had a notably better start to the season, remaining unbeaten in the Premier League and looking like they will be able to defend their title.
However, their main rivals Man Utd have had a resurgence in recent weeks, as shown by coming from behind to beat Juventus away from home in the Champions League.
The two sides face off in a mouth-watering contest on Sunday afternoon, and despite the 'Citizens' being the favourites, Nemanja Matic is confident his team can come out victorious in the Manchester derby.
"I expect a very difficult game. They are a very good side, they play good football, they score a lot of goals in every game, but we also have our qualities which we have to use." the Serbian midfielder told the club's official website.
"We have to stop them in their attacks, there is a way to do it and the manager knows that. We will prepare for the game. I expect a hard game but, in a derby, everything is possible, and we will be ready for that.
"I think that we believe more that we are a good team, we have also improved and mentally we are stronger,
"I think in the last four league games we have three wins and a draw, so this gives you more confidence, but we deserve that and will try to continue in this way."
