José Mourinho defends Manchester United from 'outplayed' claims

When this was put to Mourinho following the game, speaking to Sky Sports, the tactician replied: "I think we are not going to be relegated". However, while it was the lone loss in their last three games, the Red Devils still haven't been at their best and with many expecting them to challenge for the title alongside Liverpool and Chelsea. So Kun [Aguero] scored and then Gundogan and it was flawless.

"But if he is a fan of United or City?". After that, they didn't have any more chances to score a goal. "We knew that there is a difference in potential".

"I like a lot when he played but the best way to defend a result is to keep the ball", Guardiola added.

"Hopefully they can make good decisions for both sides and (it will) be a good game - all England, all parts of Europe are going to watch us, that is the most important pleasure".

United could not do their arch-rivals a favour and repeat their win at the Etihad Stadium after comfortably losing Sunday's derby, meaning after 12 matches, only Liverpool and Wolves have managed to make a dent-by virtue of draws-in City's succession of Premier League wins.


"It was hard, they defended so deep and they are aggressive, they follow man to man".

But with only a dozen games played in the Premier League this term, Van Dijk's approach to the race is simple: do not look beyond the next fixture. Benjamin Mendy and Raheem Sterling are second and third in assists.

Mourinho's side came from behind to notch up a famous 2-1 win over Juventus in Turin on Wednesday night to breathe life into their Champions League campaign.

A fair assessment from the midfield enforcer but things got worse as honestly assessed where the two clubs are now at, at this moment in time.

The penalty was United's only shot on target throughout the 90 minutes and teammate Bernardo Silva, who grabbed two assists, added that City stopped any potential of a repeat of last April's surprise turnaround in the derby as Sergio Aguero and Ilkay Gundogan made it 3-1. "Now we have to go for it and try to build on what we are doing".
