11am Man Utd transfer news LIVE: Lautaro Martinez demand, Haaland LATEST


Bruno Fernandes feels his side barely put a foot wrong in clinching a massive 2-0 win over rivals Manchester City.

The Portuguese told Sky Sports: “It’s always difficult to play against Manchester City. They are difficult on the ball and tough to play against. Today we did almost everything perfect.

“It’s not about winning against City, it’s about winning every game.

“Scoring in the first minute was perfect, we had more space to counter. We remained focused until the end of the game. When we defend well we know we’ll have chances to score.

“The league is not a sprint. It’s is a marathon. We have to do our best and not think about others.”

Meanwhile, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was delighted with Anthony Martial ‘rediscovering’ his form versus Manchester City.

The striker was a constant menace for Pep Guardiola’s defence and won the early penalty that set Manchester United on their way to victory.

Solskjaer told Sky Sports: “Anthony was absolutely superb today, he was the Anthony of old.

“To think he was a doubt this morning, it wasn’t until after the warm-up as I wasn’t sure if he was going to play or not. So, fantastic.

“It’s football isn’t it? Today he rediscovered himself, he was really strong on the ball and positive.

“We have to be positive, every game is different. We want to play with a high tempo of course, but we had to defend well.

“You’ve got to defend so that you can attack spaces that appear.”

And finally on the transfer front, Paul Pogba’s future looks increasingly uncertain as reports claim his agent Mino Raiola has not yet opened talks with Manchester United over a new contract.

The 27-year-old, whose current deal expires next summer, has been linked with several clubs over a possible move.

According to the Daily Star, there is no current dialogue between Raiola and United.
