City rolls past United — Manchester Is Blue

Image AnalysisFC

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. In terms of tactics and personnel, Guardiola has options to overcome the loss of any player, whereas United simply have a mediocre squad with too many players not good enough at the top level.

"United have ability to create chances and they are unsafe from set pieces".

But you've got to admit, that still is pretty amusing from the England global.

However, after a much-publicised tussle between the two clubs at the beginning of the calendar year, in which Sanchez opted to ignore the attentions of the Cityzens and move instead to Old Trafford, many would have expected this to be an unmissable occasion for the 29-year-old. "I believe in this team".

Those are not the statistics of a team likely to challenge for the title, but despite the evidence weighing so heavily against his side, Mourinho attempted to put a positive spin on United's fourth league defeat of the season.

"Because he didn't play we had to play (Marouane) Fellaini and he wasn't ready to play for 90 minutes".

Mourinho's side rarely looked like taking a share of the spoils on Sunday, with Anthony Martial's second-half penalty ultimately nothing more than a consolation. "We won't lose that because of a defeat".

'Of course, we missed him. They could have folded when 1-0 down but battled to stay in the game until half-time.

FW Anthony Martial, 6 - United's most risky forward again, he scored the penalty to become only the seventh player to score in five consecutive league games for the club, following Eric Cantona, Dwight Yorke, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo and Robin van Persie.

MF Ander Herrera, 5 - Had his work cut out on the right of United's midfield three trying to stop David Silva.

"It is November, so we haven't even finished the first round [of fixtures]", Guardiola said.
