The narrative continues to build following Saturday’s Manchester derby.

After Man City beat United 2-1 at Old Trafford, many are rushing to praise the Sky Blues for their showing in the game.

The pundits on Sky Sports said City were on a “different level” to United, while a similar set of opinions were heard on BBC radio.

Best they’ve ever played

Daily Telegraph journalist Jason Burt says Manchester City played the best football he’s ever seen in the Premier League during the first half of their 2-1 win over Manchester United at Old Trafford. He said:

That 40 minutes that Manchester City played in the first half was the best I can remember seeing in the Premier League.

I thought they were absolutely sensational. If that’s what Pep Guardiola is going to do in the Premier League then we are really in for a treat.
