Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola chose to look at the bigger picture after their defeat at home to Manchester United.

Bruno Fernandes opened the scoring in just the second minute with a penalty and an impressive Luke Shaw finish doubled the advantage early in the second half, as the Reds brought an end to the Blues' 21-game winning run in all competitions.

“We have done incredible, but today the news is we lost so congrats Man United for this victory, but we are trying to win the Premier League," Guardiola asserted.

“We will try to win the Premier League and we need to win six or seven games and now when you arrive in the last 10 games, everything is going to be shorter.

“Our opponents would have to win all their games and then we would have to lose four or five.

“What we need to do is recover.

“I will not speak to the team tomorrow but on the day of the game I will tell the team how incredible they are because of the way we lost today and kept going to the end against an incredibly difficult team who have been one year unbeaten away from home.

“Having the margin we have at the top; it is in our hands but what we need now is new fresh legs next Wednesday and try to win another game."
