  • Jesse Lingard celebrates against Manchester City

It was Kun's ninth Manchester derby goal, and he is fast becoming the most effective striker in this duel, beating Cantona (8) and staying only two behind Rooney (11).

The lack of a truly world-class creative player in the United squad stands out when they are up against a quality opponent like City, but Mata is the best that they have and he should be used more often.

The match comes four days after United's impressive comeback win against Juventus at the Allainaz Stadium. 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. But United have been assembled at great expense by a succession of managers since Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement in 2013, yet they are inhibited, cautious and hard to watch. And all of that is down to the man who picks the team and devises the tactics. However, he has been a crucial part of his team's recent rediscovery of form, even contributing a goal and an assist in United's recent 2-1 victory over Everton.

Ilkay Gundogan finished it off, but the move had taken 42 passes to construct, using every area of the pitch. United ended this game in eighth position, 12 points behind their cross-city rivals and with a negative goal difference after 12 games.


"For me zero words against my players, everything is positive", Mourinho said. "I believe in this team". "The performances, the mentality, the togetherness, belief, the fight until the end is something we are building and we are not going to lose that because of a defeat".

'Of course, we missed him. They had 6-0 wins, no pressure, relaxed.

FW Anthony Martial, 6 - United's most unsafe forward again, he scored the penalty to become only the seventh player to score in five consecutive league games for the club, following Eric Cantona, Dwight Yorke, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo and Robin van Persie.
