United are surely keen to get this season over with and begin the rebuilding they need - they have now lost seven games out of their last nine in all competitions and were outclassed after the break by City's composed, intelligent passing and movement.

'I'm concerned about the lack of results we are getting, but in times like this it's not the time to point fingers at anyone, ' Solskjaer said. I look at Pep Guardiola and he didn't win anything in his first season at Man City, so he told the board he needed to get in some defenders and a goalkeeper. "We will deal with the other games in the next days", said the Belgian.

"Forget the top four, forget Champions League next season".

Up next, Manchester United will face Chelsea in the Premier League, on 28 April. If we win it there are two games to make sure we get enough points and goals'. Although United supporters surely will want to win against City and bolster their Champions League hopes for next season, when choosing between City to win the league again or Liverpool to end their 29-year title drought, many seem to prefer that the Blues lift the trophy. "We have to play like Man United for ourselves".

But it was an enforced change early in the second-half that swung the game City's way as Guardiola boldly introduced Sane when the more defensive-minded Fernandinho went down injured.

But it was no surprise that Portuguese winger Bernardo Silva was the man who broke through. Burnley is a hard away game, then Leicester and Brighton. "There is a difference in quality". I know people are going to talk about how attractive we are, how handsome we are, like this, like that, but now we have to go to Burnley - and in my two previous seasons going to Burnley was incredibly tough.

"City were very good but it was an easy night for them", Keane said.

The midweek derby fixture against Manchester City has all of the ingredients of a potential upset.

It left Solskjaer's side 24 points behind their rivals and the Norwegian admitted there is a danger they could be overtaken by the likes of Wolves, Leicester and Everton in the coming years if the right decisions are not made off the pitch.
