VIDEO: Watch Jose Mourinho’s pre match press conference ahead of the Manchester Derby

Its the Manchester Derby! One of the biggest games in English football in the modern era, with two of footballs most succesful ever managers going head-to-head.

Its City v United. Its Pep v Jose. Its the Premier League title at stake. Could it be any bigger.

Despite Manchester City being able to claim their fifth league title this evening with a win over United, Jose Mourinho claims that he is not motivated by stopping City being crowned Champions, only by finishing as the best of the rest in second place.

United have been in second for virtually the entire season having looked like matching City stride for stride during the early part of the season.

Despite having a number of injuries throughout the season, Mourinho finally has a fully fit squad, with only backup goalkeeper Sergio Romero unavailable due to an injury sustained on international duty two weeks ago.

The Portuguese refused to comment on how spectacular City’s form has been, with Guardiola’s men set to become the first side to achieve 100 points in the Premier League, but did say that in any other season, United’s current points tally would be enough to see them challenging for the title.

He also added that he didn’t think that City’s 3-0 humiliation to Liverpool last week will have any bearing on this game, even though the second leg is on Tuesday.
