Comments:

League position: 4th Manchester City had now only lost one of their last 19 home games in the Premier League. City had now lost only one of their last 12 games in the Premier League. They failed to score for the second time in their last 12 games in the Premier League. Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola said: "I am pretty sure United came here to try to win the game. I have never met one team, one opponent, or one player that doesn’t try to win the game. We played to win the game but again we were not able to and we need to look at why. In my career as a manager, I’ve played against all types of teams and different styles. I am not here to judge what my opponent does, but what we have to do to beat them."

Comments:

League position: 5th Manchester United had now equalled their club record run of 24 unbeaten games in a the same top division season that was set in 2010-11. United had now kept eight clean sheets in their last 11 games in the Premier League. Seven of the eight red cards in the 40 Manchester derbies in the Premier League had now been shown to United players. Manchester United manager José Mourinho said: "I think City will finish in the top four with the matches they have to play, I see them doing that. It's between us, Arsenal and Liverpool for fourth. We are going to try but the reality is we have a Europa League semi-final to play and lots of problems with players. We are going to fight."
