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

Lydia FlemingNov 12, 2018

Anthony Martial stepped up and converted from the spot, giving United hope of completing the comeback.

And Ilkay said victory in the 177th Manchester derby not only sent City into the global break two points clear at the top - it also helped atone for last April's 3-2 loss to United at the Etihad.

The distance between the two teams is already 12 points, an insurmountable obstacle for the Red Devils, and we are only in mid-November.

"For me, personally, to score the victor there was the biggest feeling in my career", the 21-year-old told United's official website. Mourinho's team have kept just one clean sheet in the league this season and David Silva's strike in the 12th minute was the seventh time in 12 games that they have conceded first and the sixth time in nine they have conceded inside the first 20 minutes.

"If United start like they did against Bournemouth, then the game will be over inside 15 minutes". They had two 6-0 wins, relaxed, no pressure, everything nice and easy. Wednesday was the second straight game the team scored six goals in a match, and Man City has 22 goals in its last five contests as it challenges for silverware on multiple fronts. "I believe in this team". We played two matches away, hard ones, the second was a final against one of the best teams in Europe (Juventus), which demanded everything we had to give, physically and mentally. "We made mistakes and were punished, but the belief and fight we showed until the end is something that we are building and we not going to give that up with one defeat". We're on a good run, United as well.

"I haven't got a clue!"

'Imagine this game with Fellaini coming on at 2-1 fresh with 25 minutes to go. When the result was 2-1 and it was the moment we had that final push, it was the moment Fellaini was doing an incredible effort to stay on the pitch.

Paul Pogba, meanwhile, did not arrive with the squad at the Lowry hotel and looks set to miss out completely. The one thing he hasn't delivered answers to are the same issues which have plagued United so far this season and leave them languishing outside the top four.
