Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has reacted to Alexis Sanchez goal against Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

On the other side of the coin was the Toffees' on-loan Manchester City defender, who looked lost and displayed the form which made him a big-money flop at the Etihad Stadium.

You see what football fans thought of Pep Guardiola's decision to name only six substitutes out of a possible seven below...

"In terms of catching Manchester City, I think certainly not this season and, if I'm being perfectly honest, it will be very hard next season if City keep playing the way they are playing".

"I think it's a joke, I absolutely think it's a joke", Neville said Sky Sports.

"Of course we are frustrated in terms of the result, but the performance was outstanding against a Burnley side who are the most British of teams in terms of long balls and the way they play", Guardiola told BBC Sport.

Nemanja Matic has described Premier League games as "war" for Manchester United.

That means Arsenal have to wait until the 1st March to play their next league game when they welcome City to the Emirates for what will be their second meeting in just four days.

"I had Vincent (Kompany) come back against Burnley and Aymeric Laporte is already here but I decided not to use him today so he could recover and come back better against Leicester and Basle".

Silence fell upon Old Trafford as those lost were remembered ahead of the Premier League match that United won, with goals from Romelu Lukaku and Sanchez sealing the victory on his home debut.

"We have been there since the beginning of the season, better than last season in every aspect: better in points, better in the position in the table, number of goals scored, the number of goals we concede". "I do it for myself as well", he said. "You don't play as well as we did without that". It just felt right and I always knew in the back of my head that I wanted to go back there.

As the two sides walked out on to the pitch the home fans unfurled a banner, which read: "We'll never die". "Another day, with less chances and we are going to score".
