Paul Merson states his prediction for Man City v Man United

Jesse Lingard celebrates against Manchester City

Mourinho's side rarely looked like taking a share of the spoils on Sunday, with Anthony Martial's second-half penalty ultimately nothing more than a consolation.

"All the derbies are special", Guardiola said.

Despite their late shows, the Red Devils are seven points off the top four and now sit in eighth place in the Premier League.

"For me, personally, to score the victor there was the biggest feeling in my career", the 21-year-old told United's official website.

After falling behind to a spectacular volley by Cristiano Ronaldo, United came from behind through a free kick by Juan Mata and an own goal by Leonardo Bonucci, giving them an invaluable three points to reclaim second place in Group H. "The game was open for 80 something minutes, I think nobody left the stadium before their third goal, for sure, because the game was open until then", Mourinho told reporters.

"My heart says United will win 2-1 because they'll basically stay in the game and score two late goals after City failed to kill them off". They had two 6-0 wins, relaxed, no pressure, everything nice and easy.

N'Golo Kante gets many plaudits as being the best defensive midfielder in the Premier League, but Fernandinho is equally impressive, and he has been doing it consistently for City since arriving more than five years ago. I consider the performance of my team as a performance with mistakes. We try to make him the complete player, but his qualities are so good and so important for the team at many different levels.

That excuse about suffering from fatigue surfaced again and although United's four-game PL unbeaten run is over, Mourinho is adamant they're moving in the right direction. "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.

"This week, City played three home games and we played three away".
