City tops United for comfortable derby win

The two forces of Manchester United and Manchester City unquestionably try to put out their strongest XI in their individual attempts to claim the bragging rights in the North-West city, but headlines are often grabbed by those unfortunate players that seem to be unfavoured on the day.

The wins over Bournemouth and Everton, plus the miraculous late comeback at Juventus in the UEFA Champions League, have given United's fans false hope that this season could still be a success.

Here are the best photos from Unite's training session at Carrington on Friday morning.

As for United, they are the so-called contenders who are punching well below their weight and their performance at the Etihad Stadium highlighted why they have been so unimpressive this season.

"It is not the physical effort but the mental pressure". We paid for the mistakes.

Man City entered the weekend as one of three unbeaten teams in the Premier League along with Chelsea and Liverpool.

"I don't like to lose a game and talk about this player who wasn't here". There is a gap, Manchester City start playing from the beginning of the season at a certain level that allows them to get a lot of points.

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.

City moved the ball too fast for United.

"For me, zero words against my players, everything is positive". "We made mistakes and were punished, but the belief and fight we showed until the end is something that we are building and we not going to give that up with one defeat".

DF Victor Lindelof, 6 - Did not give the ball away once in the first half but lost Aguero when the Argentinian striker blasted the home side into a 2-0 lead just after half-time. That's six goals in five league games for the French forward. We knew there is a difference of potential.

Mourinho was without French midfielder Paul Pogba, sidelined with injury, and while the United boss did not want to use that absence as an excuse, he said the need to play Marouane Fellaini had limited his later options. At 2-1, to bring a fresh Fellaini to the pitch, I think they would be in big trouble.
