Mourinho blames United's Juventus exertions for derby loss

Man Utd boss Jose Mourinho questions side’s mental strength after Man City loss

City's conversion rate was almost as impressive as United's 100% as they had just five shots on target for their three goals but did register 17 in all to United's six.

Jose Mourinho sent on Romelu Lukaku to try and save face, and the Belgian forward made an instant impact by winning a penalty with his first touch after he was brought down by Ederson. Instead they read the game really well and obviously with the team they have ahead of them - and Fernandinho in particular - they are not under so much pressure. You can see what it meant to him in Seville to get the goals he has been overdue with us.

Surely history wasn't about to repeat itself with memories of last season's derby loss immediately springing to mind. The Spaniard is often overlooked by Mourinho, but he can hold the ball, find gaps for his attacking teammates and provide the kind of invention that the starting team was so obviously lacking.

The Blues continued to have the majority of the possession, creating half-chance here and there before Sterling played a clever ball to Sane who was inches from converting.

But Ilkay Gundogan killed off the match and ensured City would take all three points when he netted four minutes from time.

Sterling was spotted doing a series of step-overs from a stationary position to a chorus of "Oles" from City supporters in the final seconds of the champions' eighth win in nine league games.

Liverpool beat Fulham earlier in the day at Anfield and Chelsea drew 0-0 with Everton to maintain their unbeaten starts - and with Tottenham and Arsenal making solid starts as well, it looks as though the Premier League title race could be one of the most open and fascinating for years.

And Jenas was baffled at United's approach to the game.

Aside from that, he worked hard and always made himself available throughout.

United head into the worldwide break seven points behind fourth placed Tottenham, with a vastly inferior goal difference as they are the only team in the top half of the Premier League table with a negative goal difference, conceding one more goal than they have scored so far this season.

And while Mourinho rued Pogba's absence, he actually placed more importance on how the injury forced Fellaini to play a full 90 minutes earlier than he should have.

"I don't go for stats, I go for what I felt and what I watch in the game and the game was there until minute 80 something".

David Silva scored the first goal after 12 minutes and Sergio Aguero added a second soon after halftime.
