Pep Guardiola explains reason behind confrontation with Raheem Sterling after Manchester derby

There was an obvious gulf in quality between the two Manchester clubs

Located within the top-50 best ever starts to a Premier League season (in terms of points) - after 12 games - are 11 teams that have managed to go unbeaten at this specific stage of a campaign, three of which feature in the current campaign - a record.

David Silva and Sergio Aguero handed the hosts a two-goal buffer before Anthony Martial's second-half penalty gave the visitors hope.

"Is it the Manchester we used to watch?" With a top four finish likely to be the most realistic target for Mourinho's side it is unsurprising that many commentators, former players and fans feel that it is not a good enough return for a club with stature and history of United.

Palace winger Wilfried Zaha suggested he would have to get his leg broken by an opponent for a red card to be brandished following a 1-0 win over Huddersfield Town on September 15, at which Marriner was the fourth official.

"If after Turin we returned home happy and positive, after the Manchester derby we obviously felt the complete opposite", the Spaniard wrote in his blog.

He has said sanctions would stay in place until North Korea disarmed, but that he was "no rush" to force the pace of disarmament. President Trump is still expected to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and top Korean officials in January.

Pep Guardiola wants two players for every position and had wanted to bring in Jorginho in the summer but missed out when the Italy worldwide followed manager Maurizio Sarri to Chelsea from Napoli instead.

Benjamin Mendy admitted that the City players were concerned about a repeat of last season's turnaround but didn't let it get to them. "We remember it went 2-1, 2-2, 2-3, so we said we had to stay focused, keep trying to play and make chances. They came up against probably the best team in Europe [Manchester City] and got beaten".

"Kun [Aguero] scored and then Gundogan and it was ideal", Mendy said. Not only Man City - 10 points from Liverpool, a lot of points from the other ones as well.

"We are just two points in front, it's nothing. For different reasons we missed Paul but that doesn't mean with Paul we win the game so it's not an excuse".

Benjamin Mendy revealed Manchester City's players issued themselves with a half-time warning to prevent a repeat of last season's derby collapse.
