Hearts goalkeeper Neil Alexander says his teammates are brimming with confidence ahead of Sunday's Edinburgh derby against Hibernian in the Scottish Championship. The Jambos have won nine and drawn one of their opening 10 matches to top Scotland's second tier in their bid to make it back to the top flight at the first time of asking. Injury ruled Alexander out of his side's 2-1 win over Hibs at Tynecastle in August but has played an integral part for the Jambos as they have opened up a nine point gap at the top of the table. "So there is pressure on us, but, with Hibs being the home team in a derby, it's probably even.

Jose Mourinho and Louis van Gaal insist their friendship will survive whatever happens when Chelsea look to cement their position on top of the Premier League with a statement victory at Manchester United on Sunday. Mourinho has never hidden his distain for some of his managerial rivals, with Arsenal's Arsene Wenger and Aston Villa's Paul Lambert crossing swords with the Chelsea boss already this season, and the prospect of a crucial clash with a team capable of ending his side's unbeaten start would usually bring out the antagonist in the Portuguese coach. Yet there should be a refreshing lack of animosity on the sidelines at Old Trafford this weekend, however heated the action becomes on the pitch, because Mourinho and United manager van Gaal have a bond that dates back 17 years to the day their paths first crossed at Barcelona. Mourinho, then labouring in anonymity as a translator and assistant to Barcelona manager Bobby Robson, was kept on by van Gaal when he took over at the Nou Camp and earned the trust of his new boss to such an extent that he was allowed to take training sessions and give team-talks.

Manuel Pellegrini has insisted it is too early to write off Manchester City's chances of retaining the Premier League title after their 2-1 defeat at West Ham United. Saturday's loss at Upton Park was City's second league defeat of the season and meant they missed out on the chance to reduce what was Chelsea's five-point advantage at the top of the table ahead of the leaders' match at Manchester United on Sunday. City's reverse in east London capped a bad week for Pellegrini's side, who days earlier had squandered a two-goal lead in a draw away to CSKA Moscow that left their hopes of qualifying for the knockout stages of the Champions League in the balance.

Borussia can book their place in the knock-out phase of Europe when they host Galatasaray in the return leg, but they are winless in their last six German league games.
