'Anyone who had a bit of common sense knew it was going to be a very hard game on Sunday and that we had our work cut out, and that every single player had to be at the top of their game to get a result off that team. The City loss was United's fourth in the league this season - the first time they have lost that many in their opening 12 games since the 1990-91 season, when they finished sixth in the old First Division.

Goals from Sergio Aguero, David Silva and Ilkay Gundogan put City back at the top of the league table, ending Liverpool's four hour spell as league leaders.

'So every now and again you have got to hold your hands up and say they are a better team than us, [have] better players than us, and are too good for every team in the Premier League, to be honest. City's performance made clear there's no doubt who the best team in Manchester is and even United fans would tell you there hasn't been since Alex Ferguson retired five-and-a-half years ago. "We played like: "I don't want to lose the ball" but not the intention to attack or to do something. There was contact between us but I don't know if it was enough for a penalty", he said.

Trump has been criticized for failing to visit a different American cemetery about 100 kilometres outside of Paris on Saturday. French Interior minister Christophe Castaner later said President Trump's security had "in no way been threatened".

But United need to forget about City.

Well Jose, we've looked at them anyway. "For different reasons we missed Paul but that doesn't mean with Paul we win the game so it's not an excuse".

And it seems Mourinho is already thinking about the transfer window - but not just who to sign.

Instead of using such a system of measurement, the Portuguese said he prefers to side with his gut feeling on the sideline, saying: "I don't go for stats, I go for what I felt and I watch in the game and the game was there until minute 80-something".
