Man City must move past United defeat quickly - Danilo

  • Chris Smalling and Paul Pogba completed a stunning Manchester United comeback

Ander Herrera has revealed how Michael Carrick helped inspire Manchester United's dramatic comeback against Manchester City.

He said: 'I got the chance to congratulate City.

Danilo insists Manchester City can not allow the disappointment of their capitulation against Manchester United to fester given the scale of their Champions League challenge against Liverpool. We did absolutely everything in the first half but then for 10-15 minutes, we conceded goals.

The hosts pushed hard for a victor late on, but missed four good chances as it finished honours even.

JS: That Kompany header was eerily like the one he scored in that crucial Manchester derby in 2012.

RD: That will annoy Mourinho.

"I didn't want to lose against City, the loss from last season is still in my mind".

They looked awful at the back in the second half against United - just like they did at Anfield. When City did get past him in the second half, they were thwarted by the post.

'We played with courage and created so many chances in the first half.

"The first half was negative of Pogba - he did not threaten the midfield or the backline and was passive". If they won they are champions, for all the fans it would be like death.

Otamendi was reading the game well initially but made a couple of errors in the second half as he let the game flow through him and should have tracked Smalling for the victor.

'You have to defend a little better in the second half, but it is football. "When we have three players, I know Matic will stay behind, and you have more freedom to go in front".

As is the case, not many Manchester United matches go without a mention of David de Gea and his brilliance. I don't think fans will hold it too him though after scoring what turned out to be the winning goal.

RD: You're probably right.

In a furious finale, players from both sides clashed and Ashley Young was fortunate that his wild lunge on City substitute Sergio Aguero in the area was ignored by referee Martin Atkinson.

But the England defender, who made amends with a brilliant strike after Paul Pogba's quickfire double, said: 'I owed them that.

Guardiola and City will be champions and they must put the disappointment of defeat in context by Tuesday when they confront their task against Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool. City looked sleepy and United super-motivated.

As the dust settles on Manchester United's stunning three-goal comeback against arch adversaries Manchester City, much will be made of City's collapse and Pep Guardiola's inability to affect the game tactically from the sidelines. We have to thank all of them. Jurgen Klopp must have been delighted. City's Abu-Dhabi owners have splashed an estimated 878 million euros over the past decade to assemble a squad that has tilted the balance of power in Manchester from red to blue.

However, they produced a memorable turnaround at the Etihad to win 3-2. I'm not entirely convinced. The first half was awful - dropped off, didn't play our game and could have been out of sight.

"It's hard to play against City because they press really well and are compact and their transition is really strong".

The draw, though, allowed Spurs to move alongside them with a sixth straight league win as they defeated Stoke, whose relegation fears in 19th place were only heightened.
