Pep Guardiola talking about Paul Pogba before derby was 'mistake' - Jose Mourinho

Manchester City have only lost twice in the Premier League this term

"Otherwise, City will win the league again, because of the quality that they've got, the transfer window, they're going to improve, they're going to get better players".

If Guardiola thought Pogba was too expensive - even for City - in January, he certainly will be now.

Manchester United needed a leader, and Pogba took it upon himself to be their savior.

Manager Alex Ferguson provided an ever so succinct summary of the game afterwards: "Football, eh?" We were just 2-0 down. Combined with Burnley's late 2-1 win over Watford, and the Foxes sit six points back of seventh place.

In fact, United under the guidance of Mourinho had never come back from two goals down.

Jose Mourinho has indicated that Pep Guardiola made a "mistake" in talking about Paul Pogba before the Manchester derby, but stressed that it had not created a problem with the Manchester City boss.

United's first-half performance was all to familiar for fans after a season where they've notched up plenty of results, but not in the style that the club has been used to in the past. For all the fans it would be like death. Manchester City are all but Premier League champions, but they will need to wait a while longer before it can be made official.

"I mean at half-time when we are in the dressing room we said, "We have nothing to lose, let's go, please keep believing, let's make it".

"If the accusation from his agent is that he wants to go to other clubs, his price has gone up", Mourinho said with a smile.

The Portuguese also felt that the critics should give United their proper due.

His trial is likely to be a lengthy one, with a battle brewing over whether the state should keep paying Mr Zuma's legal bills. Former South African president Jacob Zuma appears at the KwaZulu-Natal High Court in Durban , South Africa on Friday.

"I think we are a bit better that what people think".

I DON'T think City's Champions League tie with Liverpool is over yet. "What we will try to prove is that we're the second-best team in the country". City should have been out of sight by half-time as Guardiola screamed in frustration after Sterling fired two glorious chances well over the bar.

"We were not good enough in the end".

United and Mourinho ensured Guardiola and City were not having that moment at their expense. But they were shocking for the last 25 minutes of the first half.

United had to step up their game and the way they turned it around was incredible.

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.

Asked whether it was a case of United being that much better in the second half or tiredness from Anfield creeping into the City side, the Brazil worldwide retorted: "I don't agree with you because if you see the statistics of the game, you analyse the game, we had the ball possession, we had the control". There wasn't a better time to play City - in the middle of two draining and all-encompassing Champions League games.

"In football, anything can happen".

"I gave them examples of many matches, teams losing 2-0 can recover".
