"Since the beginning of the season, we knew that our second position last season was a fantastic achievement for us, and this season we are going to fight for the top four", said Mourinho. "I think it's not a bad performance at all, it's a performance with mistakes". We made mistakes, we were punished for these mistakes. They've now conceded 21 goals in their opening 12 games of the season and for the first time since 1977 they have a negative goal difference at this stage of a campaign.

"If he doesn't bring results, that's the worry because this is Mourinho football".

As United was run ragged, and unable to disrupt City's passing, David Silva swept the hosts in front in the 12th minute at the Etihad Stadium. "It's Mourinho's Manchester, and Mourinho is the type of manager who has always played this type of football".

The period from the turn of the century to Sir Alex Ferguson's final game - aptly enough, the only 5-5 draw in Premier League history - saw United and Arsenal level on 28 each. After all, no manager will ever say that his team lost because of the tactics or players that he selected. Sergio Aguero, by himself, has done it more recently than United have, scoring five goals in 20 minutes of play against Newcastle in 2015.

Teammate Gundogan joked that the pair were talking about Aguero's new haircut.

Something did go right for United after Lingard was replaced by Romelu Lukaku.

Jose Mourinho has revealed why Manchester United's game plan fell apart against fierce rivals Manchester City. We remember it went 2-1, 2-2, 2-3, so we said we had to stay focused, keep trying to play and make chances'.

Lingard, however, has said that United will relish the pressure of overcoming Pep Guardiola's team. Mourinho's starting point as a manager is to ban the opposition from scoring.

Another round of Premier League fixtures has been and gone, with plenty of talking points to mull over as we head into the global break. Not as the team that appears to use elaborate financial mechanisms to try to avoid failing sporting financial regulations, as the Abu Dhabi ownership has been accused of doing after internal correspondence leaked over the last week.

The distance between the two teams is already 12 points, an insurmountable obstacle for the Red Devils, and we are only in mid-November.

"And just like violets, Manchester is blue".

City themselves will be on a high, having thrashed Shakhtar Donetsk 6-0 in the Champions League, following a 6-1 demolition of Southampton.

"The idea that I might finish my career without going to the Premier League, it is not possible", Alves told The Telegraph. "We arrived in different circumstances", said Mourinho.

"They have numbers to be champions, not just Man City", City manager Pep Guardiola said of Liverpool, Chelsea, Tottenham - and Arsenal.
