United physically and mentally exhausted, insists Mourinho

David Silva scored in his third consecutive match at the Etihad

Thomas Tuchel's side lead the French top flight by 13 points after 13 games after Sunday's 4-0 win over Monaco, but a quest for a fourth Champions League medal is in the balance.

Surely history wasn't about to repeat itself with memories of last season's derby loss immediately springing to mind. "The game was open for 80 something minutes, I think nobody left the stadium before their third goal, for sure, because the game was open until then", Mourinho told reporters.

Despite an upturn in results in recent weeks to dampen speculation surrounding Mourinho's future, United have still continuously started slowly and were again punished early on.

"I don't think PSG really understood what they were confronting when they faced Liverpool".

Though United did put up a semblance of fightback and got a goal back through Anthony Martial, their reluctance to drive into the City box and press them relentlessly cost them in the end.

Defeat means United are as close to Cardiff in the relegation zone as league-leading City - a 12-point gap that was mentioned to Mourinho when asked whether their title hopes were over. The first half we played a little bit with fear but football is a game and we didn't want to lose the ball. They had two 6-0 wins, relaxed, no pressure, everything nice and easy.

The incoming congressman ended by encouraging viewers to remember the sacrifices of those who served on Veterans Day weekend. He also urged Americans to say "never forget" to a veteran for Remembrance weekend.

That seems unlikely, though, as their remaining fixtures comprise a home tie against Liverpool, and an away trip to Red Star Belgrade. An own goal from Alex Sandro in the 89th was enough to earn the team three points on the road. With the game becoming stretched, Aguero made way for midfielder Ilkay Gundogan - the player who would turn home City's third from a fine Bernardo Silva cross.

"But he made some movements with the legs, we can avoid it, but he's young and he's going to improve".

It remains to be seen whether Mourinho's aggressive squad can salvage their season, and whether they will need to be more disciplined or act even tougher going forward. "Manchester City level? How can you reach this level" he complained after losing the first of United's double header with Juve.

"Our second game [against Juventus] was like a final for us, against one of the best teams in Europe, demanding everything we had to give from physical and mental perspective".

Aguero was involved in a passionate discussion with manager Pep Guardiola, and the striker revealed after the game that he was telling his manager how he felt he was able to continue. Sergio Aguero, by himself, has done it more recently than United have, scoring five goals in 20 minutes of play against Newcastle in 2015. 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'.
