Guardiola glad as Manchester City overcome derby fear to beat Man United

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

Early goals in each half from David Silva and Sergio Aguero put City in command and Ilkay Gundogan condemned United to a fourth league defeat of the season after Anthony Martial's penalty had given the visitors hope.

Working as co-commentator for this afternoon's Manchester derby, United legend Gary Neville was probably at his happiest reflecting on the build-up to City's third and decisive goal. "Even defensively, despite conceding three goals, it was a positive performance - it is individual mistakes". An own goal from Alex Sandro in the 89th was enough to earn the team three points on the road.

"The game", he said, "was open in a week when they play three home games and have 6-1, 6-0 victories, relaxed, everything nice and easy and we play two matches away, hard where the second was like a final against one of the best teams in Europe where we give everything physically, mentally".

City looked like they could cut through United at will down their left, with Benjamin Mendy, Sterling and David Silva combining well to make life hard for makeshift right-back Ashley Young. I go for what I felt in the game and it was there until minute 80-something.

Lukaku was introduced in the 57th minute, while Sanchez replaced Ander Herrera in the 73rd minute...

"It is not for me after defeat to speak about a player who is not here", Mourinho added.

Jose Mourinho's worst nightmare is a porous team, a wonky defence, a hefty goals-conceded column.

United scored twice in the closing five minutes to win 2-1 away to Juventus in the Champions League in midweek while City continued their campaign in European club football´s elite tournament with a 6-0 thrashing of Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday. The ex-Monaco man then knocked it back into the box to his namesake David, who showed great composure to cut inside a slot past David De Gea. Mourinho blamed the European competition for United's collapse in the blue half of Manchester.

"Of course, we missed him and one of the things that breaks a little bit, a lot of our plan, is the fact Fellaini had to start". It is one thing to go to Juventus and play against one of the best teams in the world for 90 minutes.

"I like a lot the way [Sterling] played", said Guardiola, who appeared to voice his displeasure with his player on the pitch at full-time.
