"And then there's this not-so-intelligent fella chanting racist abuse towards my two players and I hope City and the authorities will deal with it, because he shouldn't be watching football again".

The Red Devils are unbeaten against all of the traditional "big six" this season, as well as having beaten Leicester early in the season, and speaking after the win at the Etihad, former United skipper Roy Keane praised the performance of Solskjaer's side, though played down the significance of the Spurs win, with comments akin to Sir Alex Ferguson's infamous "Lad's, it's Tottenham" teamtalk.

Man United were clearly depending on counter-attacking football and to be honest every move they pulled off during the first half seemed to be working in a positive tone. But the key is to be consistent, week in, week out.

'He's trying to build a bond with the supporters, ' Keane added.

"Sometimes you don't win and the others are better and you lose". It's a huge credit to Ole.

The PA news agency understands more than one United player felt they had abuse of a racist nature aimed at them.

And this was mainly down to the pace and precision of the United forwards and even Guardiola has admitted that his player did not seem to have an answer to United's pace - despite being fully aware of what they are capable of.

Full-time result: Manchester United have beaten Manchester City 2-1.

However, despite the spirits in United's camp receiving a monumental boost after downing City, fellow Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville is remaining firmly grounded.

"But they have to do is consistently and they do need a helping hand and hopefully they get that". They need it desperately. The way they managed the game, the blocks, it was brilliant.
