He may have lost, but he has won more games than any other manager in their first 300 in the competition (currently 189).

"Man United have this unbelievable quality so they don't need too much to punish you".

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. Last season we didn't get points in Anfield.

Speaking to Sky Sports after City's victory, West Ham's Zabaleta said: "I think this is Mourinho's philosophy".

This season, City have continued where they left off, regaining their position at the top of the tree, while United have endured a woeful start to the season.

There was a time when Manchester United were the best attacking football team in the land, marauding forward with an nearly gay abandon.

In Sunday's other game Arsenal fell behind to Wolves with a first half goal by Portuguese global Ivan Cavaleiro and did not equalise until four minutes from time through Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

FW Anthony Martial, 6 - United's most unsafe forward again, he scored the penalty to become only the seventh player to score in five consecutive league games for the club, following Eric Cantona, Dwight Yorke, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo and Robin van Persie.

City remain unbeaten 12 games into the Premier League campaign after another impressive display.

If he plays no part, it is likely that United will field a midfield trio of Nemanja Maticć, Ander Herrera and Marouane Fellaini.

"So when I analyse the game today the difference was you can go for statistics - that's the way people that don't understand football analyse football, with stats - but I go for what I felt and I watched in the game and the game was there until minute 80 something".

Mourinho made signing a new centre-back a priority in the summer but couldn't get one over the line before the deadline. It's different than a bad performance.

"The game against Juventus was hard physically and mentally".

"We made mistakes. We were punished but the fight, the togetherness, it is something we are building and are not going to lose that because of a defeat", he said.

"The first half was not so good, we played like we didn't want to lose the ball but without the intention to attack", he said. "The last 30 minutes we played really well". "That is not an excuse". 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.
