Jose Mourinho says derby defeat 'a positive performance'

Jose Mourinho says derby defeat 'a positive performance'

Raheem Sterling was given a ticking off by Pep Guardiola for showboating at the end of Manchester City's comfortable derby win as the manager warned his players there could be no slacking off in the title race.

The Blues continued to have the majority of the possession, creating half-chance here and there before Sterling played a clever ball to Sane who was inches from converting.

"I don't go for stats, I go for what I felt and what I watch in the game and the game was there until minute 80 something".

United fought back for a 2-1 victory against the Italian champions Juventus in Turin on Wednesday while City cruised through a home game against Ukrainians Shakhtar Donetsk 6-0.

And Mourinho claimed his side, also shorn of Paul Pogba through injury, were physically and mentally exhausted.

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

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.

Instead, Mourinho rattled off excuse after excuse as United lost for the fourth team in 12 games this season after yet another slow start. "City felt it was hard for them until the third goal".

Former Arsenal playmaker Merson believes Manchester City will beat Manchester United at The Etihad on Sunday. But we did well and that goal from Sergio Aguero helped us a lot after half-time.

Despite an upturn in results in recent weeks to dampen speculation surrounding Jose Mourinho's future, United have still continuously started slowly and were again punished early on.

It took just ten minutes for the first goal to arrive, David Silva scoring his seventh of the season. That's good management from Guardiola.

"The first half was not so good, we played like we didn't want to lose the ball i I don't want to lose the ball, but I want to keep it with the intention to do something".

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.

He was captured going up to Sterling after the game and giving him a mouthful.

However, it was City who still looked the more likely to score and they sealed all three points in style.

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