Manchester City vs Manchester United: How do you beat Pep Guardiola's side?

Manchester City vs Manchester United: How do you beat Pep Guardiola's side?”

'If we keep conceding goals before the opportunity there will be a day where we can not come back so we have to grow up in our approach, because is clear the team is growing up, but we have to grow up in our compactness and start matches well.

Manchester City have scored 12 goals in their last two home matches and Mourinho's warned his squad that they can not afford to be as charitable against Pep Guardiola's men.

Juan Mata's late equalizer and a disastrous own-goal from Leonardo Bonucci secured three points for Jose Mourinho's side and, despite having the last laugh on the pitch, United Jesse Lingard couldn't resist poking fun at Ronaldo on Instagram. "I came here to do my job, nothing more", said former Inter Milan coach Mourinho. "We played with that (spirit) and we scored two goals like this".

Jose Mourinho's men, just like they did in Turin, came back from behind to beat Manchester City in April, depriving them of a once-in-a-lifetime chance to win the league in front of their neighbours.

United now sit in second place in Group H, two points clear of nearest rivals Valencia who downed Young Boys 3-1 earlier on Wednesday to keep their own bid for the last 16 alive.

Sami Khedira and Paulo Dybala both hit the woodwork before five-time Ballon d'Or victor Ronaldo brought the capacity 41,470 crowd to their feet when he hammered home Bonucci's long pass from just inside United's half.

It didn't take a lot to convince Ashley Young.

"The Champions League is a special competition, where you could be winning, but can't relax, as anything can happen", Ronaldo said in an interview with Sky Sport Italia .

It was the eighth goal this season for the 33-year-old Ronaldo who arrived from Real Madrid in July in a deal estimated to cost 340 million euros in total over four years, on top of the 110 million-euro transfer fee.

A series of allegations published by German magazine Der Spiegel in recent days claim City attempted to bypass UEFA's Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations, but the English champions showed no signs of distraction as they swatted the Ukrainian aside and took control of Group F.

"I was happy for the goal but I am a little bit disappointed", Ronaldo told Viasport.

Victory over Guardiola's side would cut the gap at the top to six points but Mourinho refused to say the derby is a chance for his team to get back into the title race.

Allegri added: "It leaves a bitter taste in the mouth, but we can't win all the time".
