Ten Quickfire Conclusions As Excellent City Beat United To Go Top

Paulo Dybala reveals what he said to Jose Mourinho after Juventus’ Man Utd defeat

Whenever they had the ball, there were huge gaps behind them and City were able to snuff out every United attack for the first hour of the game.

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba could be set to watch his side's Premier League clash with Manchester City from the sidelines, after he did not travel to the pre-match hotel with the rest of his teammates.

The lack of a truly world-class creative player in the United squad stands out when they are up against a quality opponent like City, but Mata is the best that they have and he should be used more often.

Substitute Ilkay Gundogan added to the lead on 86 minutes to complete a move of 42 passes, which once more exposed the gulf in class between the two sides. We played two matches away, hard ones and the second one was like a final for us against one of the best teams in Europe, a game that demanded from us everything we had to give physically and mentally.

"For me zero words against my players, everything is positive", Mourinho said.

"I don't like to lose and speak about this player that was not (here), I don't like that very much but he is important for us in many aspects", Mourinho said of Pogba.

"It's another thing to beat Shakhtar Donetsk at home and enjoy the game and be relaxed".

United head into the global break seven points behind fourth placed Tottenham, with a vastly inferior goal difference as they are the only team in the top half of the Premier League table with a negative goal difference, conceding one more goal than they have scored so far this season.

As has been commonplace in recent weeks, United started the game slowly, while City came racing out of the blocks - and were a goal ahead after 12 minutes. In truth, it was Ederson who handed them the initiative with a poor challenge to give United a penalty kick. However, United's midfield looked short of ideas when they had the ball, with Herrera insisting on playing the easy ball rather than taking a risk. We knew there is a difference of potential.

"We're scoring a lot of goals, creating a lot of chances, conceding few", City manager Pep Guardiola said, "and that is a rhythm".

City are doing everything right, on the pitch at least, while United continue to flounder in search of a way forward.
