United youth coach Nicky Butt: Manchester City now bigger than Manchester United

The report from Bleacher Report further adds that Jerome Boateng is one of the many players who will make way soon and this has piqued Manchester United's interest in the 30-year-old star. So Kun [Aguero] scored and then Gundogan and it was flawless. The City loss was United's fourth in the league this season - the first time they have lost that many in their opening 12 games since the 1990-91 season, when they finished sixth in the old First Division.

The Red Devils had managed to build some momentum in the Premier League over the past month or so following three victories and one draw in four top-flight outings to move to within four points of the top four.

The Manchester United manager opted to bring in Marouane Fellaini in place of the injured Paul Pogba against Manchester City on Sunday, while Fred warmed the bench.

"We controlled the game, even when they scored a goal from the penalty spot". I tried to get the ball, it happens.

'Anyone who had a bit of common sense knew it was going to be a very hard game on Sunday and that we had our work cut out, and that every single player had to be at the top of their game to get a result off that team.

But with only a dozen games played in the Premier League this term, Van Dijk's approach to the race is simple: do not look beyond the next fixture. "It's different for a goalkeeper". Not only Man City - 10 points from Liverpool, a lot of points from the other ones as well.

Defeat leaves United in eighth place and with a negative goal difference, and City midfielder Bernardo Silva, who set up his side's first and third goals, suggested they are nearly out of the title race, as he warned their neighbours they now have no margin for error.

Anthony Martial is United's top scorer in the league with six, the same amount as City's Raheem Sterling.

Despite the win, Guardiola has refused to get carried away with City's title chances.

The Bavarians like Manchester United haven't had the best of times in the Bundesliga this season and sit seven points behind leaders Borussia Dortmund going into the November worldwide break.

Mourinho's side came from behind to notch up a famous 2-1 win over Juventus in Turin on Wednesday night to breathe life into their Champions League campaign. "Now we have to go for it and try to build on what we are doing".
