City’s getting Guardiola spirit while Mourinho has a long brigde to cross(photo internet)

While United are not yet looking like Mourinho side, City are certainly starting to resemble a Guardiola one, especially in the first halftime.

Mkhitaryan’s speedless(photo internet)
This was the Armenian’s first Premier League start at the expense of Juan Mata but Mkhitaryan looked off the pace. Mkhitaryan had poor control halted the move and his crossing was also below par.

What’s more, he was the one who made fault for De Briyun’s goal, twice opting against closing down Aleksandar Kolarov despite being yelled at by Wayne Rooney. Ones are claiming is a result of the thigh injury he picked up during the international break.

Claudio Bravo was about to betray Pep(photo internet)
Everyone is missing what Pep Guardiola would tell the Citizens if the result was not a win. He probably thought he had heard the last of his big call to get rid of Joe Hart and replace him with his own man Claudio Bravo but the criticisms came screaming back.

Bravo’s miscommunication with John Stones – possibly down to the language barrier – gifted Zlatan Ibrahimovic goal. On the other side, Hart have had a wry smile on his face in a café in Turin.

Mourinho got his tactics wrong
Jose Mourinho had believed in physical tactics, he opted speedless Henrikh Mkhitaryan instead of Anthony Martial but City’s speedy game was there to reveal Mourihno’s Faults.

Rashford would have got the start(photo internet)
Marcus Rashford came off the bench at kick off second half time, inspite of being goallsess halt time, his impact was there.

Within minutes he had turned Bacary Sagna inside out to create a chance for Ibrahimovic and his presence caused Guardiola to withdraw his own wonderkid in favour of holding midfielder Fernando.

Rashford had scored four goals in his last two games, the 18-year-old was bursting with confidence and nearly drew level for United, using his electric pace to get away from the defence only to be denied by the faintest of touches by Ibrahimovic’s offside right knee.
