But with the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final against Liverpool to come on Tuesday, with City 3-0 down from the first, Guardiola says he would prefer an opponent less demanding than United.

And Mourinho has joked Guardiola if the rumours are true then they will have to pay through the roof to sign him.

Whichever side you're on, it's undoubtedly the pick of this weekend's football. Every team in the course of the season had some injuries, has someone suspended, had referees' mistakes that helped or punished you. "It's not good. He has to respect the dogs", Guardiola said with heavy sarcasm on Friday.

Key stat: Otamendi failed to win a single tackle in the match.

It made no sense, and yet it had happened, City's rearguard, again, crumbling under the slightest pressure. It is what it is. Second-half he struggled before coming off.

The scores were almost level sixty seconds later as David James palmed away a fierce Paul Scholes effort into the path of Cristiano Ronaldo, who rattled the post.

"So, what do you want me to say?"

While their rivals have prioritised Europe over their domestic ambitions, United have named a full-strength XI with Romelu Lukaku leading the line at the top of their 4-2-3-1.

Sergio Aguero, who has 199 goals for City, has scored six goals in his last six Premier League appearances against Manchester United.

In an exclusive sit-down with Soccer AM's Fenners, the City boss said: "I would prefer to play with another opponent".

The Belgian outmuscled Smalling to power home Leroy Sane's corner on 25 minutes.

"We beat Manchester United 3-0 and we won the title at Stamford Bridge in 2005-06, precisely". He escaped a handball early on after falling in the box and could have been booked for tangling with Sterling shortly afterward.

"But I don't go in this direction because it belongs to the season".

City are often criticised for their lack of support at the Etihad, and United are clearly playing some mind games. Having said that, the Frenchman came alive in the second half, scoring a brilliant brace to stun to Etihad. He got stuck in well, while wearing his heart on his sleeve.

City, perhaps, was still suffering the aftereffects of what happened on Wednesday. They have failed to score on eight occasions duing this run. The club has been set up for Guardiola. Subs: Marcus Rashford (on for Sanchez 82) 6, Scott McTominay (on for Lingard 85) 6, Victor Lindelof (on for Herrera 90) 6. Surely for this one he has to "let the horses run free"?
