Jose Mourinho left frustrated by poor first half and referee decisions

Guardiola was happy with City's display during the first half, when De Bruyne's attacking brilliance was a decisive factor, but he was left calling upon a higher power as his defence clung on after the interval.

Unimpressed: Jose Mourinho was fuming after Manchester United's first half performance against City.

It was only that moment of indecision from Bravo that disrupted City - and Guardiola's congratulations for his players at the end were also an expression of delight for their resilience when the going got tough late on.

"We were punished by a bad first half - my responsibility - and punished by Mark's bad decisions in the second half, but that's football".

And the contest saw the Blues, particularly in the first half, once again produce the sort of slick, passing football with which their new manager has for so always been associated.

The Portuguese believes the pressure of the occasion got to some of his players, with United's poor first-half display compounded by two penalty appeals being rejected after the break. "If it is outside the box, it is a direct free-kick and a red card".

"In the box it is more hard to give and he didn't want to give it". Subconsciously, we wondered whether the managers would think: 'Let's get out of here without damage'. He wasn't able to save the day as he has done so many times before, but he did bring Manchester United back into the game, and for that reason, he was able to outperform Marouane Fellaini and Antonio Valencia.

"In here (in the press conference), we will be speaking about a completely different story".

Bizarrely, the Mirror report also mentions that Man United will no longer be pursuing deals for Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar and Gareth Bale, in much the same way that your mate Derek told you he's decided not to marry Margot Robbie. I say 100 per cent. Otamendi tries to stop the cross in the face of the goal, but the cross comes behind him.

"We lost the ball very, very easy". If you make a mistake it's how you react; that's football.

The United manager hauled off Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Jesse Lingard at half-time and said it was only because he did not want to "destroy them" that he did not substitute them earlier.

"If it was a sport with a free number of changes and where the changes during the first half is something normal like basketball and all this kind of stuff, I would do after 20 minutes".

Asked if picking the wrong team may have been responsible for United being embarrassingly outplayed in the first half, Mourinho shrugged: "We could play with some individuals with some qualities who didn't give me what I want".
