Jose Mourinho Slates Man City's 'Classless' New Documentary

Jose Mourinho Slates Man City's 'Classless' New Documentary

City swarmed around the Huddersfield area in the opening moments, Aguero having a shot blocked and the visitors' Steve Mounie miscuing a clearance onto the top of his own bar inside three minutes.

Sergio Agüero scored a hat trick that helped Man City get their second win in as many games this season.

City's other scorers were Gabriel Jesus, who started up front alongside Aguero in a 3-5-2 formation, and long-serving playmaker David Silva, who curled in a delightful free kick. Snippets of a touchline row with then Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger during that game are also shown, as is some footage of the tunnel fracas during City's shock FA Cup loss to Wigan.

City claimed the Premier League crown with a total of 100 points, culminating in a dramatic 1-0 victory at Southampton in which Gabriel Jesus scored the victor deep into added time.

David Silva restored City's advantage with a fine free-kick three minutes after the restart.

Sergio Aguero of Manchester City celebrates after scoring his team's fifth goal during the Premier League match between Manchester City and Huddersfield Town at Etihad Stadium on August 19, 2018 in Manchester, United Kingdom.

United finished as runners-up to City last season and Mourinho feels it will be hard for the Red Devils to improve due to the strengthening of their top-six rivals.

A delighted Guardiola told Sky Sports: 'Last season Huddersfield played five at the back. An own goal by Kongolo closed the score six minutes before the final whistle.

Manchester City will hardly miss the injured Kevin de Bruyne if Silva continues his fiery form.

"In the end, it wasn't a tactical decision which decided the game, it was just the quality we faced today", he said.

Guardiola's ability to bring the best out of intelligent players even when moving them into new, unaccustomed positions makes his City side perhaps the most flexible the Premier League has seen.

Guardiola said: "He trained the last two or three training sessions".

Last season, Silva played 35 league matches, but started only 15, a figure that should rise considerably this season, particularly in light of De Bruyne's injury.

"Mendy is Mendy. Sometimes we want to kill him and sometimes you think, wow, what a player we have", Guardiola said.
