Pep Guardiola and his Manchester City team emerged victorious over archrivals Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday evening.

The much publicised fixture was one littered with errors and controversies, with City showing their class once again.
Man City are now 11 points clear of second-placed Man United courtesy of their 2-1 victory with goals from David Silva and Nicolas Otamendi either side of a Marcus Rashford strike for United.

United could have been awarded a penalty in the second half of the game, but Ander Herrera was booked for simulation after a challenge from Otamendi.

This decision rather disappointed the Man United boss, who aired his views after the game.

“We should have had a clear penalty.” He continued, “I’m sorry for us and for Michael (Oliver) but it’s a clear penalty. That would have been 2-2 with 20 minutes to go.”

Man City has now put an end to United’s 40-game unbeaten run at Old Trafford. A run that started after the two teams met in this particular fixture last season, with city also coming out of 2-1 winners.

Jose Mourinho also hinted that the title race might be over, explaining that he is unsure if his team can reel back to their rivals.

Up next for United is a home tie on Wednesday against Bournemouth, while City will travel to the Liberty Stadium to face Swansea City looking to consolidate their lead on the table.
