Ten Quickfire Conclusions As Excellent City Beat United To Go Top

Ten Quickfire Conclusions As Excellent City Beat United To Go Top

Ilkay Gundogan sealed the win for Pep Guardiola's side four minutes short of the final whistle, marking a disappointing day for the 13-time Premier League winners.

Jose Mourinho's team is left in eighth spot, 12 points adrift of its "noisy neighbor" that is on course to finish higher in the league for the sixth straight season since the legendary Alex Ferguson retired from the Old Trafford helm.

Working as co-commentator for this afternoon's Manchester derby, United legend Gary Neville was probably at his happiest reflecting on the build-up to City's third and decisive goal. I consider the performance of my team one with mistakes.

But United did at least stem City's flow as the half wore on and the hosts didn't threaten again until Aguero fired into the side-netting just before half-time.

However, Paul Pogba scored twice in the second half to level the derby clash before Chris Smalling netted a dramatic victor to make Manchester City wait to get their hands on the trophy.

What has been key to United's resurgence has been their ability to turn games around, with United coming from behind to grab points against Newcastle, Chelsea, Bournemouth and Juventus in recent weeks.

The Red Devils faced Juventus in Turin on Wednesday evening before travelling across Manchester to play the Premier League champions, but Mourinho did not get the result he wanted at the Etihad. It wouldn't surprise me if City win this 5-0, but this is Jose Mourinho, who always turns up in the big games.

"The first one is a bad one to concede and the second one is even worse".

Thre was a glimmer of hope for Mourinho's men when Romelu Lukaku was clipped by Ederson for a penalty, which Anthony Martial cooly slotted home.

Then the third goal came in the 44-pass move that started with Benjamin Mendy seizing control of the ball and ended with Gundogan left clear by Nemanja Matic to meet Bernardo Silva's cross and put the ball past De Gea in the 86th minute.

Mourinho blamed a draining week for the defeat.

"Another thing to beat Shakhtar Donetsk at home 6-0 and be very relaxed". "We had to play [Marouane] Fellaini and he was not ready to play for 90 minutes. I think some of the boys, they felt it a little bit".

"I like a lot the way [Sterling] played", said Guardiola, who appeared to voice his displeasure with his player on the pitch at full-time.

"So yes, for different reasons we missed Paul, but that is not an excuse to lose the game".
