Mourinho fails to match up as Guardiola takes Man City streets ahead

Fred has struggled since joining Manchester United

Fred has struggled since joining Manchester United

Man City entered the weekend as one of three unbeaten teams in the Premier League along with Chelsea and Liverpool.

After the game Mourinho was asked if the derby summed up why City are pushing for a second-straight title and United, who finished a distant second behind them last season, are now exclusively focused on trying to finish in the top four.

Mourinho blamed the European competition for United's collapse in the blue half of Manchester.

The 25-year-old also warned City's title rivals that there is more to come as they target a mountain of trophies. "We felt a bit the pressure". The win pushes City back into first place after being jumped by Liverpool earlier in the day.

"I like a lot when he played [but] the best way to defend a result is to keep the ball". I consider the performance of my team as a performance with mistakes.

Mourinho bemoaned the Frenchman's absence meant Marouane Fellaini had to play the 90 minutes and was not fresh for an aerial bombardment off the bench when Anthony Martial's penalty reduced United's deficit to 2-1 after goals early in both halves from David Silva and Sergio Aguero put City in command.

But when this point was put to United manager Mourinho, he replied by saying: "I think we are not going to be relegated". It was the second successive Premier League game that Ederson has given away a spot-kick and he said that goalkeepers don't get a second chance when they make mistakes. "Whether they admit it or not United are coming into the game on Sunday as underdogs".

Manchester City will be looking to exact revenge on Manchester United after their humiliating 3-2 loss to Mourinho's side last term.

Thomas Tuchel's side lead the French top flight by 13 points after 13 games after Sunday's 4-0 win over Monaco, but a quest for a fourth Champions League medal is in the balance.

Tireless shift by the City play-maker who claimed an assist for the first and third goals was involved in the second, too.

Herrera hopes that a spark can be found from somewhere, with United aware of how important positive results will be after the global break as they seek to build momentum.

"We arrived in different circumstances", said Mourinho.

"As long as Pep is there and as long as they're playing the way that they are you would fancy Man City over Manchester United every single time", Dunne said.

"In a game that demanded everything we had to give not just physically, but mentally".

"In the dressing room at half-time we had spoken about what happened in the derby a year ago, and we were telling each other not to let that happen again", Mendy told reporters.

Benjamin Mendy admitted that the City players were concerned about a repeat of last season's turnaround but didn't let it get to them. "We had to work hard and we won it".
