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.

However, Paul Pogba scored twice in the second half to level the derby clash before Chris Smalling netted a dramatic victor to make Manchester City wait to get their hands on the trophy. United are so far from that it is scary as they've had to rely on late comebacks to drag them up the table in recent weeks.

The champions bossed it from start to finish, taking an early lead through David Silva and doubling te lead after the re-start through Sergio Aguero.

FW Jesse Lingard, 5 - Worked hard and limited Benjamin Mendy's raids from left-back but should have got closer to Sterling when he crossed in the build up to City's opener and was robbed in midfield by Fernandinho for the second.

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

The City striker took the ball to the edge of the box, played a one-two with Riyad Mahrez before firing a powerful angled drive past De Gea for his 11th of the season.

"You can go for stats, that's the way people who don't understand football, analyse football", protested Mourinho. He'll have a plan to keep United in the game.

Hamas gets funds from Qatar to pay civil servants' salaries
Officials from Hamas, Qatar and Israel have been largely silent about the details of the Gaza payouts arrangement. Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman also criticized the Qatari money transfer to Gaza.

It's been a stunning start by the champions who look determine to at worst repeat last season's heroics - if not better them.

City settled that score and ensured that if they are to be denied in their quest to be the first side in a decade to retain the Premier League, the challenge is likely to come from Liverpool or London rather than across Manchester.

Aside from that, he worked hard and always made himself available throughout. The first half we played a little bit with fear but football is a game and we didn't want to lose the ball. Okay maybe not quite that attacking but they've certainly gone away from that.

"I am just sorry we don't play the next match soon and have to wait 13 days for that, but we are improving, we are together and go together until the end".

"For different reasons we missed Paul but that doesn't mean with Paul we win the game so it is not an excuse".

Frustrated by Chelsea's failure to turn possession into goals, Sarri said: "Usually yes we are sharp enough, but not in the last three matches".

The last global break of the year means no game now for fortnight with the champions resuming a week on Saturday away to West Ham United.
