Man United struggles highlighted by confident, controlled Man City

Monday, 12 Nov, 2018

They're the games you want to be involved in, like everyone else.

Despite United's good form in recent weeks, Pep Guardiola's side went into the game as heavy favourites and took the lead through David Silva in the 12th minute.

"City will be nervous despite United being the bigger club".

After the game Mourinho was asked if the derby summed up why City are pushing for a second-straight title and United, who finished a distant second behind them last season, are now exclusively focused on trying to finish in the top four.

Mourinho may leave it until the wire to make a decision on Pogba, and there have been suggestions that Mourinho has intentionally kept Pogba separate from the rest of the squad in an attempt to confuse Man City.

He insisted his team were united in reality as well as in name, while saying all three of City´s goals were down to mistakes by his players.

Shortly after her speech, Winfrey posted videos on Instagram of herself going door to door canvassing for Abrams. He declared that he had "a message for all of Stacey Abrams' liberal Hollywood friends: This ain't Hollywood ".

"For me, personally, to score the victor there was the biggest feeling in my career", the 21-year-old told United's official website.

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. "The performances, the mentality, the togetherness, belief, the fight until the end is something we are building and we are not going to lose that because of a defeat".

Jose Mourinho's worst nightmare is a porous team, a wonky defence, a hefty goals-conceded column. They could have folded when 1-0 down but battled to stay in the game until half-time.

Lukaku forced a penalty not long after coming on and Martial scored for the fifth consecutive matchday.

Mourinho chose Fellaini, Ander Herrera and Matic in the midfield and three of his fastest players up front: Lingard, Martial and Rashford.

'That's an important thing for us'. Watching from the United bench were the more creative Juan Mata and Alexis Sanchez; it was as though Mourinho had given up any hope of winning before his team kicked a ball. "A lot can happen in football, but we are scoring a lot of goals and creating a lot".
