Man United Boss Mourinho: 'Guardiola Is Lying About Silva Injury!'

Jose Mourinho believes Pep Guardiola is lying about David Silva's possible absence from the Manchester derby on Sunday.
Silva has been ruled out of Wednesday's Champions League clash against Shakhtar Donetsk, and Guardiola suggested he could miss the game on Sunday.

After hearing Arsene Wenger rule Alexandre Lacazette out only for him to line up against United on Saturday, Mourinho believes Guardiola is playing a similar game.

When asked about his own team's injuries, Mourinho told reporters:
"You want the truth or what do you want? You want the truth.

"The truth is Eric Bailly no chance for the weekend, Phil Jones a chance, [Marouane] Fellaini a chance, Zlatan [Ibrahimovic] a big chance and [Nemanja] Matic is injured but will play for sure. [Michael] Carrick no chance.

"I'm telling the truth, he's injured but will play for sure. No stories of Lacazette or David Silva. All the truth."
Speaking to BT Sport, Mourinho maintained his theme and claimed United are "a bit more humble" that their rivals.

He also picked up a thread from earlier in the season – his perception that opponents complain about injuries in a manner that he does not.
"No, we have no injuries," he said.

"Our opponents have all these issues. They have a big issue but in the end everybody is ready to play.
"They have phenomenal organisations. We are a bit more humble.

"When we have a problem, we have a problem. When players are injured, they are injured. I tell you the truth."
