Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney believes that Manchester city will not be affected negatively by injuries to key players in the derby against United today.
Manchester city will be without top attackers like Sergio Aguero, David Silva, and Samir Nasri in today's game but Rooney says that they have other players to take their place and perform well.
“Nowadays the top teams have such good squads that they can cope with injuries,” says Wayne, reports manutd.com. “The players they brought in cost over £100million in De Bruyne and Sterling, so they are two fantastic young players and we have to nullify their threats and take advantage of their flaws.
“Raheem is a fantastic player and a great lad as well, but he is still a young lad and still has a lot to learn. The good thing about Raheem is that he wants to learn. He has started his career at City really well, but hopefully we can slow him down a bit on Sunday and come out on top.”
