"They are the champions and the best team in the league but we will try everything to be as good as we can", said the Holland captain. Goals from David Silva, Sergio Aguero and Ilkay Gundogan saw City extend their lead over United to 12 points from just 12 games.

To have a chance of overtaking City, Liverpool need a helping hand from other Premier League teams taking points off them but Van Dijk said that is not something which now bothers them. The referee doesn't want to make a mistake.

"Kun [Aguero] scored and then Gundogan and it was flawless", Mendy said.

Coming to Sanchez, the Chilean is likely to remain at the club despite his dismal displays in a United shirt and a growing sense of disillusionment among the fans. After that, they didn't have any more chances to score a goal.

While he didn't say it directly, his words could only be interpreted in one way - that he believes Manchester United to be number two to City.

"I don't know. So the people know, he is from Manchester but the people knows the team he supports?"

"For Manchester United now we have got a challenge on to get back to where we want to be, which is the biggest club in the country, and also in the city", Butt told the press. I tried to hit the ball, it happens. "It's different for a goalkeeper".
