Manchester United defeat means Pep Guardiola has now LOST more games in the league this season than any other campaign in managerial career… and Manchester City still have TEN games left to play

  • United are only the third team to do the double over a side coached by Guardiola 
  • His City side have now lost seven games in the Premier League this season
  • United also defeated City in the semi-final second leg of the Carabao Cup

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola set an unwanted personal record in Sunday’s derby defeat by Manchester United.

His City side have now lost seven games in the league this campaign, more than the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach has ever lost in a season before.

United midfielder Bruno Fernandes, who set up the opening goal for Anthony Martial, put his fingers to his lips after arguing with Guardiola moments before Scott McTominay sealed victory in injury time.

The win means United have done the league double over their rivals. The last time they achieved that was in 2009-10, when Sir Alex Ferguson was still in charge.

They are only the third team to do the double over a side coached by Guardiola, following Wolves this season, and Antonio Conte’s Chelsea side in 2016-17.

Afterwards Guardiola was upbeat despite the defeat.

He said. ‘Over 90 minutes we played really well. 

‘In the first half we need to be a little bit more aggressive in the final third but in the second half we did it a little bit better.

‘In general we played well but congratulations United on the victory.
