"It is not for me after defeat to speak about a player who is not here", Mourinho added.

David Silva and Sergio Aguero put the Citizens in a commanding position before Anthony Martial cut the deficit, but it was not enough as Ilkay Gundogan 86th-minute third sealed the points. People sometimes like to focus on the little problems in his performance, and we do the same.

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 go for what I felt in the game and it was there until minute 80 something.

Jose Mourinho sent on Romelu Lukaku in a bid to try and restore parity, and the Belgian forward made an instant impact by winning a penalty with his first touch after he was brought down by Ederson. Against a team like City, if you make mistakes you will get punished. The Spaniard is often overlooked by Mourinho, but he can hold the ball, find gaps for his attacking teammates and provide the kind of invention that the starting team was so obviously lacking.

"My heart says United will win 2-1 because they'll basically stay in the game and score two late goals after City failed to kill them off".

"City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Tottenham, Arsenal - they have numbers to be champions", Guardiola stressed. After playing a one-two with Riyad Mahrez, Aguero struck through David De Gea's raised arms at the near post to celebrate his new silver haircut with a goal.

"I'm not going to give that as an excuse", said Mourinho, a three-time Premier League victor with Chelsea.

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.

"Everybody has to agree", Mourinho said.

United's manager suggested recent matches at Bournemouth and Juventus had done his players no favours when City had faced Southampton and Shakhtar Donetsk at home. "One thing is to go to Juventus and play against one of the best teams in the world and play for 94 minutes in the limits, not just the physical but the mental. I think they will". "For different reasons we missed Paul but that doesn't mean with Paul we win the game so it's not an excuse".
