Bruno Fernandes, a Manchester United midfielder, has stated that he and his teammates must be strong defensively in order to upset Manchester City on Saturday.
At Old Trafford, the two city rivals face battle in the early kick-off.
After being thrashed 5-0 by Liverpool two weeks ago, United will be playing at home for the first time.
Fernandes has urged his teammates to keep the defense tight and not concede any goals.
He told Sky Sports: “For us it is, ‘stick to the plan’, defend well. ‘Don’t concede goals’ is the main point, because we know we have goals in the squad and players who can score.
“If we don’t concede, we will score at any moment.
“The main point for us is to defend well as a team. We proposed to everyone in the dressing room after that defeat against Liverpool that we cannot concede so many goals. David de Gea has been brilliant for us, making many, many saves and still we conceded a lot of goals in many, many games.”
