Manchester City Have Given Manchester United A Ray Of Hope - Gary Neville

It was David Silva's turn this week to rescue Manchester City as the Spaniard celebrates his winning goal

Fifteen games into the new season, City are eight points clear of United at the head of the table and Sunday's game is being billed as Mourinho's big chance to stick a spoke in Guardiola's wheels.

The incident came after Raheem Sterling's late victor sent the Etihad into pandemonium, setting them up for a record-equalling 13th consecutive Premier League victory against West Ham on Sunday.

It was the most unlikely lead at the end of a first half in which the hosts dominated.

Yaya Toure believes Manchester City are "practising the best football in Europe" as they look to finish the Champions League group stage with a 100 per cent record. Even though we had already qualified, we wanted the three points.

Redmond said last Thursday that Guardiola's comments were "complimentary" despite his angry demeanour, insisting nothing "negative or offensive" was said. "We didn't have any rhythm because West Ham goalkeeper Adrian was taking 30 seconds every time". Our pace and pass were quicker and better. "It's up to Chelsea to win their games and keep up with City, and hopefully Chelsea don't slip up". We'll play the same there.

"It has been a tough week for Manchester City, but a good one, though it has also been a good week for Manchester United as well, in terms of competitors chasing City", Neville told Sky Sports News.


"It means we have done 39 points in a row".

But, despite that sour taste, City remain in good shape ahead of their biggest game of the season so far.

Fellow pundit Phil Neville also agreed that the 18-year-old stood out, with the former Manchester United star saying: "Today was a great learning experience for him".

West Ham manager David Moyes, on his part, said: "I have to say it was a really good effort. That gives us the best chance to win". We are a bit more humble. We had one day where we could prepare.

"Concentration levels are the most important thing". I thought his decision making, when to come out and when to hold his position, he identifies it, releases himself and just tidies up nicely.
