Jose Mourinho: United answered their critics with stunning win at City

08 Abril 2018

Manchester City have the chance to just that when they welcome Manchester United to the Etihad with only a win separating the Blues from winning the Premier League.

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has admitted he would rather play another side than Manchester United, as they seek to wrap up the title against their rivals.

A draw won't do it. City MUST get a victory to ensure the title today, and José Mourinho is 200% aware of that fact. "We did absolutely everything in the first half but then for 10-15 minutes we conceded goals".

The revelation that Guardiola was sounded out about the prospect of signing Pogba will spell further trouble for Raiola and Mourinho.

Fernandinho - 6 - Anchored the midfield in typical fashion in the first-half, and also got Kompany out of jail after his wayward pass let Herrera latch onto a loose ball in the City box, before the Brazilian reacted quickly to tackle the Spaniard, sparing his captain's blushes.

Pep Guardiola has revealed he was offered the chance to sign Paul Pogba in January.

"It was not the end of the world, Manchester United didn't finish".

Fit-again defenders Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo have trained all week and are in contention.

"For all the questions, there's one certainty". Every team in the course of the season had some injuries, has someone suspended, had referees' mistakes that helped or punished you.

City's dominance has been so overwhelming that many are already ranking them among the best teams in Premier League history, alongside the likes of Arsenal's "Invincibles", who won the 2003-04 title without losing a single match, and United's 1999 treble winners. It's the manner of the two defeats, for in them has been crystallized the tiny doubt that has nagged deep in City's souls all seasons.

The scores were almost level sixty seconds later as David James palmed away a fierce Paul Scholes effort into the path of Cristiano Ronaldo, who rattled the post.

Think you can do better than Lawro?

This time was supposed to be something more, something extra special.

City star Kevin De Bruyne knows staging their title celebrations while United are forced to watch is a delicious prospect for the club's fans.

Gabriel Jesus (for B Silva 72) - 5 - Another of City's main attacking threats, the Brazilian could not catch up to the pace of the game and look flustered and frustrated. After his disappointing first season in England, we asked whether Guardiola's juego de posición could really work in the Premier League. We just are a little bit sad for our fans and our people.
