Manchester United players angry at Jose Mourinho's refusal to drop Nemanja Matic

It was the second successive Premier League game that Ederson has given away a spot-kick and he said that goalkeepers don't get a second chance when they make mistakes. "We played like: "I don't want to lose the ball" but not the intention to attack or to do something". The report from Bleacher Report further adds that Jerome Boateng is one of the many players who will make way soon and this has piqued Manchester United's interest in the 30-year-old star.

United will take on Crystal Palace on November 24 at Old Trafford after the global break.

Guardiola said: "Two points, four points from Chelsea is nothing".

"I think we are not going to be relegated", the United boss said, via Evening Standard.

However, to make sure that changes, Jose Mourinho and Manchester United are reportedly still very interested in signing world cup victor Jerome Boateng, especially with Bayern Munich looking to sell their best players. "For different reasons we missed Paul but that doesn't mean with Paul we win the game so it's not an excuse".

"Even after the penalty, you'd expect a United side to come out fighting, but in fact they were terrified of City".

However, they were well and truly second best during the 3-1 defeat to Manchester City at the Etihad. As good as City have looked this year, they've barely spent any time at full strength.

"We are outside of that, we are having very hard fixtures, away at Chelsea, away at Manchester City, nearly impossibly hard for us to win three matches in a row".

"Kun [Aguero] scored and then Gundogan and it was ideal", Mendy said.

Goals in either half by Mohamed Salah and Xherdan Shaqiri secured three points for Liverpool at Anfield, where Van Dijk and co recorded a 10th clean sheet in the past 11 home league matches.

"But if after he's a fan of United or City, everybody can be a fan wherever he wants, so no problem". "We know the derby is for the fans, and for the people who work for City".

The importance Jose Mourinho may or may not afford to such concerns is another thing entirely, however. "Now we need to stay focused".
