After beating Mourinho's Manchester United side 3-1 at Etihad Stadium, Manchester City remain the leader of the Premier League and confirmed their dominance in the division and in the city. Pogba's enforced absence meant Mourinho took an even more pragmatic approach, with three defence-minded midfielders shielding a four-man backline.

Jose Mourinho's team is left in eighth spot, 12 points adrift of its "noisy neighbor" that is on course to finish higher in the league for the sixth straight season since the legendary Alex Ferguson retired from the Old Trafford helm.

Nuno Espirito Santo's men were matched at a high of [6.6] to win the game and soon had the lead when Ivan Cavaleiro scored from close range, but in the dying minutes substitute Henrikh Mkhitaryan saved the Gunners' blushes to rescue a draw. When I analyze the game today I think the difference was - you can go for stats, that is the way people that don't understand football analyze football, is with stats - but I don't go for stats.

United's manager suggested recent matches at Bournemouth and Juventus had done his players no favours when City had faced Southampton and Shakhtar Donetsk at home.

The Belgium worldwide replaced £89m midfielder Paul Pogba, who was injured before the match. The pressure before and during the game.

Thomas Tuchel's side lead the French top flight by 13 points after 13 games after Sunday's 4-0 win over Monaco, but a quest for a fourth Champions League medal is in the balance.

"We are outside of that, we are having very hard fixtures, away at Chelsea, away at Manchester City, nearly impossibly hard for us to win three matches in a row".

Alves, 35, turned down Manchester City and the Premier League when he joined PSG on a free transfer in the summer of 2017. "I know very well that I have to say thank you to the club because they gave me a very good squad, I have to say thank you to my players first of all and finally I have to say thank you to my staff", said Sarri.

Bernardo Silva was the provider for his namesake to register his seventh goal of the season with a shot that had just too much power for De Gea on 12 minutes.

Cit's superiority was reflected throughout the first half and was confirmed at the start of the second, when Aguero scored the second. The first half we played a little bit with fear but football is a game and we didn't want to lose the ball.

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero insists there's no problem with manager Pep Guardiola after their touchline exchange during victory over Manchester United.

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