Guardiola glad as Manchester City overcome derby fear to beat Man United

Manchester United have won their last three outings

But Anthony Martial's equaliser from the penalty spot on 57 minutes, after substitute Romelu Lukaku had been fouled by goalkeeper Ederson, gave United a flicker of hope.

Gary Neville has said that no result in Sundays Manchester derby would be a surprise, saying that both sides have the ability to win.

The Red Devils remain eighth in the Premier League and a title challenge now looks already off the cards.

After falling behind to a spectacular volley by Cristiano Ronaldo, United came from behind through a free kick by Juan Mata and an own goal by Leonardo Bonucci, giving them an invaluable three points to reclaim second place in Group H. 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. They're the games you want to be involved in, like everyone else. They could have folded when 1-0 down but battled to stay in the game until half-time.

After the game Mourinho was asked if the derby summed up why City are pushing for a second-straight title and United, who finished a distant second behind them last season, are now exclusively focused on trying to finish in the top four. "The performances, the mentality, the togetherness, belief, the fight until the end is something we are building and we are not going to lose that because of a defeat".

Asked why his team had been fearful, Guardiola replied: "We wanted to play good in front of our fans and we know how important it is to play in this game".

That excuse about suffering from fatigue surfaced again and although United's four-game PL unbeaten run is over, Mourinho is adamant they're moving in the right direction.

'Of course, we missed him.

"I haven't got a clue!"

"It is November, so we haven't even finished the first round [of fixtures]", Guardiola said.

"I think these big games are what you play for", Lingard told MUTV.
