Pep Guardiola has Manchester United warning after Man City derby win

A win for Erik ten Hag&aposs side last week would have moved them to within three points of the Blues in the Premier League table, but a 3-0 victory for the visitors made it nine instead and that gap does not seem to cover the chasm between the clubs. Another 3-0 home defeat, this time to Newcastle in the Carabao Cup, has plunged United into another crisis with more scrutiny than ever on Ten Hag&aposs position as he looks to salvage a team that has had 400m spent on it in two years.

City meanwhile have used a rare week off to allow a third of their squad to attend the Ballon d&aposOr awards in Paris, where Erling Haaland finished second in the main prize and five Blues made the top ten in addition to CEO Ferran Soriano picking up the award for men&aposs club of the year. United&aposs position has been made even more uncomfortable by the incredible success that their noisy neighbours are currently enjoying.
