Losing title on derby day not the end of the world — Mourinho

Jose Mourinho gives his reaction to Sky Sports after Man Utd came from 2-0 down to beat their City rivals and postpone their title-winning celebrations.

Goals from captain Vincent Kompany and Ilkay Gundogan put the hosts in a commanding position, who were left to rue huge missed chances from Raheem Sterling to extend their lead. It was just football.

That being said, Manchester United's Instagram page have thrown shade at Manchester City ahead of kick-off, taunting that they might be able to fill up all those empty seats this time around.

"I don't know, I have no idea if they were interested [in Sanchez] or not, I've no idea".

'Honestly I'm not interested in which one is the liar and which one if the honest guy. We had more ball than normally teams get against City. Second-half he struggled before coming off.

The French midfielder responded to Guardiola's revelations with a picture on Twitter cupping his hand to his ear, captioned "Say what?"

Essentially, it is seen as a mark of respect.

Daley Blind returned to full training on Friday following an ankle injury but is unlikely to be involved. But could do nothing after the interval as his side fell apart.

But in the last four days they have displayed a worrying tendency to collapse.

Will Manchester City win the title this afternoon?

It would be the earliest in the calendar year a team has become top-flight champions since the same day in 1956, when Sir Matt Busby's Manchester United beat nearest challengers Blackpool 2-1 to clinch the title.

That will take place against Huddersfield and is scheduled for Saturday, May 6 - a week before the season finishes.

Having endured a disappointing first season with City, Guardiola has silenced the critics who claimed his purist principles would not work in the cut-throat Premier League, meshing his desire for a smooth passing style with an ability to compete physically. Paul Pogba, the man allegedly offered to City in January by his rogue agent, scored twice in 97 seconds to bring United back to life.

Chris Smalling - 7 - Let Kompany go for the first goal, and had a torrid first half, but the England international made amends after the restart, scoring the winner.

"We beat United 3-0 and we won the title at Stamford Bridge in 2005-06".

Aguero was denied by a brilliant De Gea save two minutes from time and Sterling then hit the post as United somehow held on for a famous win.

They are by no means guaranteed to be eliminated after this, but their task will certainly not have been made any easier. "It is a good distance but not mathematically done", manutd.com quoted Jose Mourinho.

They are slightly high in confidence as they are on the back of a win at Old Trafford against Swansea and also they have their hopes alive to get a hold of the FA Cup. Keep the champagne on ice. He got stuck in well, while wearing his heart on his sleeve.

"For all the questions, there's one certainty".

Romelu Lukaku - 6 - Isolated up top, as United failed to register a single shot on target in the first half. The club has been set up for Guardiola. "That is normal in football, but in this case obviously they [City] are going to be champions because there is a very significant difference". Subs: Marcus Rashford (on for Sanchez 82) 6, Scott McTominay (on for Lingard 85) 6, Victor Lindelof (on for Herrera 90) 6.
