Guardiola has now won seven league titles in nine seasons as a senior coach in three countries after conquering La Liga and the Bundesliga with Barcelona and Bayern Munich on multiple occasions. "It was a bad reaction after the City victory, the outcome of that is complicated football", said the United manager.

Thankfully for City, Gabriel Jesus equalised soon, but then it was still 1-1, and another draw would have meant United go four points clear of City at the top.
