Ten Quickfire Conclusions As Excellent City Beat United To Go Top

Anthony Martial scores Manchester United's only goal of the game

"I am with my players", Mourinho said.

"So when I analyse the game today the difference was you can go for statistics - that's the way people that don't understand football analyse football, with stats - but I go for what I felt and I watched in the game and the game was there until minute 80 something".

Paul Pogba didn't play due to physical discomfort, Romelu Lukaku was only fit enough to start from the bench and Alexis was also a substitute.

"Everybody has to agree - it is one thing to go to Juventus and play against one of the best teams in the world for 90 minutes and another thing to beat Shakhtar Donetsk at home 6-0 and be very relaxed".

"When I speak about physical fatigue, mental fatigue that leads to mistakes during the game that's what I mean".

The same fixture last season ended in another famous comeback win for United, with Paul Pogba scoring 2 second-half goals in a 3-2 win after falling 2-0 behind in the first half.

Instead, Mourinho rattled off excuse after excuse as United lost for the fourth team in 12 games this season after yet another slow start.

After falling behind to a spectacular volley by Cristiano Ronaldo, United came from behind through a free kick by Juan Mata and an own goal by Leonardo Bonucci, giving them an invaluable three points to reclaim second place in Group H.

Man City assert their superiority as Jose Mourinho holds back Man United
I played in the middle off David Silva and Fernandinho and looked to use Bernardo and Raheem. I am with them and they are with me.

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 depth of our squad helps a lot because everybody knows they have to be at a level if they want to stay there".

Bernardo was the provider for his namesake to register his seventh goal of the season with a shot that had just too much power for De Gea.

Fernandinho found Bernardo Silva in a pocket of space i front of the United back-line and the Portuguese took David De Gea by surprise as he rifled a low shot just wide from 20 yards out.

"The first half was not so good", added Guardiola.

Jose Mourinho is never going to be a coach who throws caution to the wind, but his starting lineup for this game gave City the encouragement to push United back from the outset.

However, it was City who still looked the more likely to score in the final quarter and sealed all three points in a style Pep Guardiola will admire.

Ilkay Gundogan finished it off, but the move had taken 42 passes to construct, using every area of the pitch.
