Manchester City Ilkay Gundogan said that Manchester City have showed their strength of character as his side beat long-time rivals Manchester United.
United had not been beaten at home for a club-record of 40 games that stretch back 15 months to the last Manchester derby in the league (for the best betting tips, check out 12BET).
Pep Guardiola’s men bookended United’s run after a 2-1 win match where City enjoyed 65% possession and became the first team to win 14 successive English top-flight games in a single season.
“It’s definitely not easy to come here, to play the way we’ve played and especially to win that game,” Gundogan told reporters. “It was about a lot of mentality, about a lot of heart and bravery to do these kind of things.
“We just felt like we are the deserved winners of this game and that’s why we were so happy after the final whistle. Obviously it was a special game as well, it was not just a game.”
Meanwhile, United boss, Jose Mourinho admitted that winning this season’s Premier League title is a bit out of their hands now.
Manchester City will be travelling to Swansea’s home ground as Manchester United host to Bournemouth this week.
