It was honours even between Huddersfield Town and West Ham United, and Southampton and Watford, while Leicester City' first home match since the death of owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha ended in a goalless draw with Burnley.

United head into that game sat nine points adrift of their neighbours and playing catch-up in the battle to secure top-four finishes.

Manchester United were well beaten by fierce rivals Manchester City on Sunday afternoon and fans weren't happy that their side only managed one shot on target, the penalty that have them their consolation goal.

Manchester United were well and truly outplayed against the reigning champions with City running out comfortable 3-1 winners at the Etihad Stadium. I'm not going to be so quick to sit here and say it is the coaching staff's fault - there is a problem structurally at this club which means it would be hard for any coach to get this team to perform. They beat AC Milan 2-0 at the San Siro, thanks to goals from Mario Mandzukic and, of course, Cristiano Ronaldo. This time it was Sergio Aguero.

"One thing is a bad performance another thing is a performance with mistakes".

Barcelona's 4-3 loss to Real Betis is their first ever defeat in a game - across all competitions - in which Lionel Messi has scored two or more goals. Wednesday was the second straight game the team scored six goals in a match, and Man City has 22 goals in its last five contests as it challenges for silverware on multiple fronts.

Gundogan finished off a 44-pass move that dragged United all over the pitch, slotting home five minutes from time.

"I'm completely happy", Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp told reporters.

"The point is can we improve enough to catch them next season?" an optimistic Mourinho said at the time.

After all, no manager will ever say that his team lost because of the tactics or players that he selected.

Tireless shift by the City play-maker who claimed an assist for the first and third goals was involved in the second, too.

Chelsea, in 2005, and Leicester City's quite remarkable title success of 2016 are also on there, as are Arsenal's 2001-02 champions.

Liverpool remains two points behind City after beating Fulham 2-0 on Sunday and Chelsea is two points further back after being held 0-0 by Everton.

"We started the game moving the ball very slowly so it was impossible for us to be risky and easy for Everton to defend", he said.

Towards the end of the game, though, Sterling found himself involved in a spat with United playmaker Juan Mata.
