Nicky Butt: Manchester United low on confidence

City were in total control throughout Sunday's 3-1 win over Manchester United, producing a performance that was both artistic and industrious.

"He scored but he's been pretty important the last couple of games he's been involved, which is good for all of us". While everyone else in the Premier League has a fatal flaw or is struggling to play their best, City continue to wreck every team they play.

On Fred's start at United, club legend Irwin told MUTV: 'The manager, like he did with [Victor] Lindelof, he is letting Fred settle and get used to the pace of the Premier League.

Mourinho can't blame a sporting director or interfering club president as he might have been able to at his previous clubs - he's privileged to get a free hand at Old Trafford.

The ensuing 90 minutes felt less a contest to see who would win the 177th Manchester Derby and more an exercise in how many goals Manchester City felt like scoring.

Juventus are a significantly better team than United, yet Mourinho's men beat them last week.

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

The threshold for a recount will be determined by the number of ballots reported by the canvassing board by noon Saturday. The hiring came after Scott derided Nelson for hiring Elias as "one of Hillary Clinton's lawyers from D.C".

Butt pointed to the difference in class between City and United on Sunday when Pep Guardiola's men outclassed Jose Mourinho's side at the Etihad Stadium.

"But if after he's a fan of United or City, everybody can be a fan wherever he wants, so no problem".

"We nearly didn't give United any chances bar the penalty", the Portuguese said. But when these facts were put to Mourinho after the match, he said: "I think we are not going to be relegated".

Virgil Van Dijk insists Liverpool remain unconcerned about what defending champions Man City are doing as there is little they can do to affect the Premier League leaders' progress.

That would mean United finishing behind City for a sixth straight season.

"I think the team played really well, particularly in the second half", he said. "It's Mourinho's Manchester, and Mourinho is the type of manager who has always played this type of football". I consider the performance of my team one with mistakes.

Having lost their early lead against Cardiff, things went from bad to worse for Brighton when Stephens was sent off for a reckless (and pointless) challenge just after the half-hour mark.
