Iheanacho makes instant impact as City draw with Saints

Share

After Guardiola's Champions League embarrassment at Barcelona with Manchester City on Wednesday, Mourinho saw his Manchester United side brutally taken apart by Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday.

The draw allowed Southampton to climb above Watford into eighth in the table, with 13 points from nine games. There is a suspicion Mourinho does not yet know his best team but he will surely set up more positively in this one and it would be a major surprise if Marouane Fellaini - hooked off early after a poor game against Chelsea - keeps his place.

"When it was 11 against 11 in Barcelona and the second half against Everton, we were very good".

"You shouldn't celebrate like that when it's 4-0", Mourinho reportedly told Conte after the game in comments picked up from television footage by Italian media.

"We will see tomorrow, after the players' recovery, then decide if it's necessary to make rotations or not".

"But today I think it is not part of the reason".

City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne had to be replaced at half-time due to a calf injury and will miss the trip to Old Trafford for Wednesday's EFL Cup tie against cross-city rivals Manchester United. When you come with a strategy you can't concede a goal like that in the first minute.

Neither manager would reveal what was said in the post-match exchange but Conte said he was entitled to act as he did.

But on Sunday, Guardiola kept his players in the dressing room for almost an hour after the game.

Asked why he had spent so long with his players after the final whistle, Guardiola joked that "the red wine was good".

"We are together", Guardiola stated. We are going to accept the situation. They are not a side playing with the rhythm, fluidity and confidence that they were playing with at the start of season. I thought he'd be one of the managers to struggle because he doesn't have knowledge of the Premier League.

Redmond's goal, latching onto John Stones' careless pass to Vincent Kompany, was opportunistic but the Saints star later revealed he had been waiting for such an opening.

England, though, is a more challenging football environment.

Soon afterwards, Steven Davis was similarly left unguarded just outside the home box and curled a shot narrowly wide. "Except for the first half at White Hart Lane, we have been quite similar to the start of the season". In the meantime, I'm sure Pep's happy to sit top even if it's only on goal difference. "I have to help the team achieve".

After nine games, United has fewer points (14) than at this stage a year ago under Van Gaal (19) and sits seventh in the standings - six points behind pacesetters Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool.
