Gary Neville Outlines 'Sobering' Reality Manchester United Must Realise

The only surprise was City's inability to pile on more goals, with David Silva and Sergio Aguero also netting in a match where United was restricted to one shot on target, 36 per cent possession and lacked the verve provided by the injured Paul Pogba.

Pep Guardiola's side are sitting at the top of the Premier League table and two points ahead of title challengers Chelsea FC and Liverpool FC.

Guardiola, meanwhile, was thrilled with his team's performance after they responded well to United's goal, having let a two-goal lead slip in last year's fixture. "It was a performance with mistakes and we paid for it", stated the United manager. An own goal from Alex Sandro in the 89th was enough to earn the team three points on the road.

"It's sobering to say, but we shouldn't compare Manchester United to Manchester City actually", Neville claimed.

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.

"It is not for me, after a defeat, to speak about a player who was not here [Pogba]", Mourinho said after the game.

McKenna added: "It's just exciting for everyone and hopefully we'll be part of a team that wins a cup for Aberdeen". Given his age as well, he's full of potential and to handle an occasion like he did on Sunday is something special.

"If United start like they did against Bournemouth, then the game will be over inside 15 minutes".

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. Aguero took his goal beautifully, playing a one-two with Mahrez before smashing the ball past David de Gea into the roof of the net.

But United, excellent in midweek in shocking Juventus 2-1 in the Champions League, showed fighting quality by responding with a 58th minute penalty by the in-form Anthony Martial after Ederson had pulled down substitute Romelu Lukaku in the box.

Mourinho blamed a draining week for the defeat.

"For me zero words against my players, everything is positive".

However, Manchester City have been in brilliant form in all competitions and the Citizens were 6-0 winners against Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League on Wednesday night. "I think they will". "We had to play [Marouane] Fellaini and he was not ready to play for 90 minutes". It's completely different. We arrived in a little bit of different circumstances.
