Jose Mourinho believes Manchester City's players go down very easily, with the Manchester United boss saying it only takes a "little bit of wind" to knock them over.The 175th Manchester derby is comfortably the biggest match of the Premier League season so far as second-place United attempt to claw back Pep Guardiola's runaway leaders.Eight points is the gap ahead of Sunday's mouth-watering Old Trafford encounter and Mourinho has looked to disrupt rivals City before a ball is kicked.While full of praise for Guardiola's side, the Portuguese used the opportunity to underline the unbeaten league leaders' apparent tendency to go to the deck."They are a good team," Mourinho said.

Their supporters can now look forward to seeing coach Paulo Fonseca fulfil a promise to wear a Zorro mask to a press conference if they qualif...
