"The first game [at Old Trafford] was incredible for me, and the second for him".
United's ability to snatch late goals under former manager Alex Ferguson was one their most potent weapons, an ability they have not managed to display with any sort of regularity since the Scot retired. "I don't think it's the way to look at the match".
"We are not a team that gives up".
Ince believes United have been forced to play "a different way" without the option to go long and feels that approach will serve them better when pitched into action against reigning champions City at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.
"We are a team that has that collective spirit to fight back but it is not always possible".
"Even if the good results were not in our pockets the performances were there, the positive attitude was there, we are going to try".
"We know we can beat any team".
"So if you want to speak about their football potential we can speak, and football potential starts with investment".
"It's hard enough as an isolated event, to put it in the context of where we are then it becomes even more hard".
"So if we keep conceding goals before the opponent we will arrive at the day where we can not come back so we have to make sure that we grow up, not just in our approach, but also in our compactness in order to start matches well".
"All the derbies are special, I think in Spain there's more noise [in the media] than here, before the game especially, but it's always special for everybody".
Chilean star Alexis Sanchez also participated in their preparation for the big game this weekend which means that he will be available for selection on match day.
