Kyle Walker deletes tweet mocking Man United after Man City derby win

United is now 12 points off the top of the league, an unlikely amount for this team to overcome the rest of the season. As for United, they are the so-called contenders who are punching well below their weight and their performance at the Etihad Stadium highlighted why they have been so unimpressive this season.

Mourinho's side rarely looked like taking a share of the spoils, with Anthony Martial's second-half penalty ultimately nothing more than a consolation.

Silva opened the scoring on 12 minutes and Aguero doubled their lead three minutes into the second half.

The result broke United's momentum after a recent upturn in results. I can imagine (if) when the result was 2-1 to bring a fresh Fellaini, I think they would be in big big trouble.

Kiwi Ryan Fox is six shots back in a share of 11th, after carding a two-under 70 to start the tournament in South Africa. There was a tie for fourth between Danielle Kang of the United States and South Korea's Kim Sei-young.

Manchester City's Sergio Aguero slips behind United's Victor Lindelof to slot home the goal that put City ahead by 2-0 shortly after half time in the derby match.

"The game", he said, "was open in a week when they play three home games and have 6-1, 6-0 victories, relaxed, everything nice and easy and we play two matches away, hard where the second was like a final against one of the best teams in Europe where we give everything physically, mentally".

Despite his age, there will be no shortage of clubs vying for his services and Manchester City have inevitably been linked given the player's long association with Pep Guardiola.

After we scored after our first goal we could have been a bit more aggressive and tried a little bit more. But my team is Man City, so when they win, I win. An own goal from Alex Sandro in the 89th was enough to earn the team three points on the road.

Federal appeals court delivers blow to Trump plans to cancel DACA protections
Several other federal district courts have likewise issued injunctions required the government to maintain the DACA program. Judge Jacqueline Nguyen questioned the government's contention that a DACA decision was beyond the authority of the court.

With PSG third in Group C, a point behind Liverpool and joint leaders Napoli, Alves has challenged his team-mates to learn from their mistakes ahead of the competition returning later this month. We were stable, we scored one goal, the first 15 minutes was good and after that we didn't press so well.

Later, Chelsea missed its chance to go temporarily top, but was held to a goalless draw by improving Everton at Stamford Bridge, while fifth-placed Arsenal escaped in a 1-1 home draw against promoted Wolves.

United allowed City plenty of possession, but against the champions, it's risky tactic and with only 12 minutes on the clock, the Reds were punished. "I don't go for stats". 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.

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.

"We were in a fight to try to get the equalizer", Mourinho said.
