City rolls past United — Manchester Is Blue

"Our second game [against Juventus] was like a final for us, against one of the best teams in Europe, demanding everything we had to give from physical and mental perspective".

United's late comeback also brought the first goals Juventus had conceded in the Champions League this season, opening up Group H with two games left to play.

But you've got to admit, that still is pretty amusing from the England worldwide.

Jose Mourinho is never going to be a coach who throws caution to the wind, but his starting lineup for this game gave City the encouragement to push United back from the outset.

"In terms of watching them at this moment in time, [there is an] absolute gulf between the two teams in terms of performance levels".

Tyson Chandler's impact on Los Angeles Lakers made clear during debut
The Los Angeles Lakers are coming off an impressive 114-110 win at home over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night. Jones played with James in Miami, and followed him to the Cleveland Cavaliers late in his career.

"It's sobering to say, but we shouldn't compare Manchester United to Manchester City actually", Neville claimed.

A 44-pass move that allowed Ilkay Gundogan in to finish off the game in City's favour, a general malaise hung over a performance from Jose Mourinho's men that offered little or nothing to the tie as a whole.

"For me it was more important to get three points but it's always nice to score", said Aguero. "I am even with my players that today made the mistakes that led to Man City's goals".

It was put to Mourinho that United's title hopes were over because of being equidistant to the top of the table and the bottom three, but he brushed it off. "Nothing would really surprise me in this game as it could swing so much either way - I wouldn't be surprised it City won 3-0 but it wouldn't surprise me if United won 2-1 or 3-2 either", Neville said on his weekly podcast. But instead he was making an incredible effort to stay on the pitch. Clearly one thing is to have a fresh Fellaini and another to play him for 90 minutes in this match.

"So yes, for different reasons we missed Paul, but that is not an excuse to lose the game". "That is not an excuse". The one thing he hasn't delivered answers to are the same issues which have plagued United so far this season and leave them languishing outside the top four.
