It was a one-sided local derby that saw City easily beat Man Utd 2-0 at Old Trafford.

Phil Foden was delighted with Manchester City's 2-0 win against Manchester United, saying "we had the game of our lives today, everything went right."

City cruised past rivals United in the derby on Saturday afternoon, thanks to an early own goal by Eric Bailly and a close-range tap-in from Bernardo Silva at the stroke of half-time.

The difference was clear in terms of quality on the pitch and the Cityzens could have scored more goals but David De Gea kept Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team in the game at Old Trafford, though the homeside looked toothless throughout.

Pep Guardiola's side will now focus on challenging for the title, as the Premier League looks set for a three-horse race.

"We had the game of our lives today. Everything went right, a lot of possession and chances. We dominated from start to finish," England international Phil Foden told Sky Spots.

"(What went right?) Possession, picking the right times and when to hurt them. Really pleased.

"We knew we could exploit the space in behind and we picked the right times to do it. My team-mates found me a few times in behind and on another day I could have finished the chances.

"We got in at half time and said we had to keep up the possession game and I thought we did that really well.

"Massive confidence going into the international break - important to get the win before that. Delighted.

"It was very important to get back to winning ways."

Gundogan: 'Very happy with result and performance.'

City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan told BBC Match of the Day: “Happiness. We played a really good game. We could have scored maybe a couple of more goals. Very happy with result and performance.

“We were expecting them to be more offensive and more pressing. We had to be ready to play out of the back and we did that very well and dominated possession.

“The more we could keep the ball the less opportunities we would give them. Scoring made it a bit easier as we were not forced to play as offensively. We could see what they had to offer.”
