Guardiola glad as Manchester City overcome derby fear to beat Man United

Lingard celebrates with Paul Pogba

"There was no need to create more tension than there already was, sometimes you get insulted and it's bad, but to create more tension than there already is..."

But a late flashpoint saw Juan Mata take issue with Sterling as he showboated in the final seconds, keeping the ball in the corner and performing stepovers as United players rushed towards him.

Guardiola, meanwhile, was thrilled with his team's performance after they responded well to United's goal, having let a two-goal lead slip in last year's fixture.

"It is not for me, after a defeat, to speak about a player who was not here [Pogba]", Mourinho said after the game.

GK David De Gea, 6 - The Spanish worldwide conceded from City's first two shots on target and will be unhappy to have been beaten at his near post by Aguero, though but there was a lot of power behind the effort. I go for what I felt in the game and it was there until minute 80 something.

Handed a slightly better angle three minutes after the break, the Argentine made no mistake as he played a one-two with Riyad Mahrez and blasted high past De Gea to move out on his own as the Premier League's top scorer with eight goals.

Welbeck has 'significant' ankle injury, Arsenal confirm
Welbeck was available for sale in the summer, Arsenal had not offered him a new contract and likely are not planning to do so. The England worldwide was on the fringes of Emery's first-team squad so a contract extension is unlikely to be forthcoming.

This was how City wants to be viewed on the world stage: A team producing scintillating soccer on the field.

Champions last season with 100 points, City heads into the worldwide break with a two-point lead over Liverpool. "Now we are a much better team than at the beginning of the season when we lost a lot of points".

Jose Mourinho's team is left in eighth spot, 12 points adrift of its "noisy neighbor" that is on course to finish higher in the league for the sixth straight season since the legendary Alex Ferguson retired from the Old Trafford helm. Mourinho blamed the European competition for United's collapse in the blue half of Manchester.

United fought back for a 2-1 victory against the Italian champions in Turin on Wednesday while City cruised through a home game against Ukrainians Shakhtar Donetsk 6-0 and the Portuguese manager was quick to point out that context.

"I like a lot the way [Sterling] played", said Guardiola, who appeared to voice his displeasure with his player on the pitch at full-time.

"He is not in a condition to play 90 minutes". It's completely different. We arrived in a little bit of different circumstances.
