LONDON -- Mourinho United vs. Guardiola City. Or, as its been known for the previous 171 games, the Manchester derby.Never before in the 135-year history of the game has the intrigue and anticipation focused so much on the rivalry between the managers and their personal missions.A build-up intensified due to the two-week Premier League break has often cast the players as the supporting act as two of soccers greatest coaching minds compete for supremacy in the northern English city.When they faced off in Spain, about 400 miles separated Pep Guardiolas Barcelona and Jose Mourinhos Real Madrid. Now, theyre on opposite sides of town.Ive played in derby games in Germany but this should be a great match and one Im really looking forward to, especially because Pep Guardiola is taking on Jose Mourinho, said Leroy Sane, who joined City last month from Schalke. It should be a special game and we can sense the expectation all around the city from our supporters. Its going to be exciting.Of their nine meetings in Spain, Guardiola won five and Mourinho only two. Before then, when Mourinho was at Inter Milan, the Portuguese masterminded only one victory over Guardiolas Barcelona and lost two of the other three encounters.The duo spent the offseason trying to downplay any tensions, including dismissing speculative, goading inquiries about whether they would shake hands before a friendly in Beijing that had to be postponed because of bad weather.Both Mourinhos United and Guardiolas City are putting perfect starts on the line, but its only the fourth round of the Premier League, resuming after the break for World Cup qualifying.Guardiolas derby plans were disrupted by top scorer Sergio Aguero being suspended, with 19-year-old striker Kelechi Iheanacho the only direct replacement available.The Spanish coach does now have his preferred goalkeeper on hand after exiling Joe Hart on loan to Torino and bringing in Claudio Bravo from Barcelona. The 33-year-old Bravo has been on international duty and will have little time to train with his new team, making his selection far from certain on Saturday.Bravo has been the subject of friendly teasing from United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.Heres some training gear, youre going to need it, the Swede wrote alongside an Instagram video showing him putting the kit in a parcel addressed to Bravo.But Ibrahimovics own starting place looks less secure given the impact made by Marcus Rashford for both United and England in recent weeks. Before the international break, the 18-year-old forward snatched three points for United by coming off the bench to score a stoppage-time winner at Hull. On England under-21 duty, he then scored a hat trick on his debut this week.Thats all you want to do as a young player, give your manager a decision about whether to play you, Rashford said. Im just looking forward to it.Here is a look at other talking points in the Premier League this weekend:---NEW-LOOK ANFIELDLiverpool played its first three games of the season on the road, gaining four points as builders were occupied at home.Now the Merseyside club is ready to return to Anfield and play in front of the newly renovated main stand for the first time when Leicester visits on Saturday.The capacity is rising to more than 54,000, with an additional 8,500 Liverpool fans now accommodated after the Fenway Sports Group scrapped the plans by previous American owners to build a completely new venue.Thats more power and we should use this, Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp said.Like Liverpool, defending champion Leicester has won once, drawn once and lost once so far. Record signing Islam Slimani is set to make his Leicester debut even though the striker hasnt had a chance to train with his new teammates.---ERIKSEN SECUREDMauricio Pochettino is relieved to have signed midfielder Christian Eriksen to a new contract with Tottenham through 2020.Tottenham is unbeaten but has drawn twice and only won once so far this season.

At a Manhattan federal court hearing, attorney Jordan Siev said his law office has gotten more evidence nearly every day to support its lawsuit accusing MLB and Selig of going on a "witch hunt" to ruin Rodriguezs reputation and career. He said the defendants went "way over the line. Shaun Johnson has called upon his New Zealand teammates to play smarter ahead of their Four Nations opener against England.The Warriors NRL star also says he needs more support in defence from his Kiwi forwards ahead of the clash against England in Huddersfield on Saturday.After their disappointing 26-6 loss to Australia in Perth two weeks ago, the Kiwis, desperately need a win as they seek to retain their Four Nations crown.Halfback Johnson was heavily criticised for his effort in the loss to the Kangaroos at nib Stadium, but he was behind a beaten Kiwis pack.Now playing on British grounds that should suit their forward-oriented approach, Johnson said the Kiwis need to sharpen their approach.We have to mix things up. I feel we have the best forward pack in the world we just have to learn how to use that in the best way, Johnson told AAP.You saw (against Australia) when we got ourselves going, we got back into the game.We just played a bit too straight up and down and let our big boys run through the middle without too much shape.We just expected them to win the ruck for us.But to be fair their middles played a bit smarter, with more width and found thinggs easier.ddddddddddddWe have to use the eyes a bit more, look to go wider a bit more and look for the halfback, you know.Johnson was forced to make 34 tackles, behind only Kevin Proctor (44) and fellow back-rower Tohu Harris (35) in the Kiwis side.I found myself tackling a lot, it is hard, it is very hard, Johnson said.Individually we have to lock that ball up and hold onto it.You can have all the fancy game plans and all the fancy plays you want but if you are not holding onto that ball you are going to get points put on you.Johnson did say new coach David Kidwell had them on track after taking over from new Warriors coach Stephen Kearney six weeks ago.The environment that David has brought back and brought his own little touch on has been a really enjoyable one, he said.We are away for a month and we need to enjoy our time in camp. We will keep feeding off that. I know we are going to play some really good footy and learn our lessons.We will play Australia again soon and we will have the chance to show what we have learned.
