City have proved the 'Barca way' can work in England - Guardiola

Ederson blocks a late shot from Juan Mata as Lukaku flounders

"A defence genius Mourinho against an offense genius Guardiola".

All at the home of their biggest rival, too. It will be good for the club, for all of us and the media. "But it's important for our confidence to feel that we can compete on big stages with huge personality".

Otamendi (54 minutes) scored the decider in the second half after star winger David Silva provided the visitors lead in the 43rd minute. There were two teams with a lot of quality.

"They said: 'We want you, not just for the hypothetical titles you are going to win, or what you have won in the past".

When is it appropriate to stop caveating our assessment of this City team with 'It's still early days?' Because it is December and they have drawn only one game, beating every other team in their way.

City dominated possession at Old Trafford, showing they have grit as well as class even if the performance was not a classic display of the manager's attractive passing football.

Marcus Rashford equalized in first-half injury time, also benefiting from a defensive mistake from Otamendi, and United manager Jose Mourinho was left to bemoan the failure of Michael Oliver to award a penalty for what he thought was a trip by Otamendi on Ander Herrera.

He went on to criticise City despite Pep Guardiola's team being the dominant side for the majority of the game.

It meant City was getting quite easily to the edge of United's box before encountering a wall of red jerseys.

The Belgium global has found the net regularly since joining Manchester United from Everton, but still faces doubt over whether he can produce the goods in big games.

The hosts have been struggling for consistency in recent games, losing three of their last five games, but a win could push them up two spots into ninth position. He failed to clear in the lead up to both of City's goals - the second a particularly messy swipe with his right foot - suggesting that he is not the reliable defensive barrier Didier Drogba once was for Mourinho at set pieces. Rashford was more alert, driving a first-time shot low past Ederson.

Lukaku barely threatened up front for United but he again unintentionally made his presence felt at the other end of the field. He had time and space to deal with Silva's floated free kick in the 54th, yet managed to smash his attempted clearance into the back of teammate Chris Smalling. What we can be sure of is that their style of football will remain wonderful to watch, and it is perhaps the best ever seen on these shores. Witnesses said some players tried to swing punches while police looked on in disbelief.

The newspapers reported Mourinho had a verbal altercation with City goalkeeper Ederson before having water and milk thrown at him by City's players and being hit on the head with a plastic bottle.
