  1. Goodbye

    Local lad Marcus Rashford is the hero as his brilliantly-taken goal wins the Manchester derby for United against City.

    The Tyne-Wear derby ended all squad, while there were wins for Southampton and Tottenham too.

    A great way to end the club football action, with the international break next week. Until then.

  2. Post update

    Tottenham 3-0 Bournemouth

    A bit more from Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino: "Harry Kane is one of the best strikers in the world.

    "We have hit a different period, from the beginning of the season. After the international break we will have one game every week and we will have time to prepare training and improve to do a lot of things which were impossible to do before.

    "The gap that Leicester have over us and Arsenal and Manchester City, we need to reduce. They have a good advantage but we need to believe."

  3. Home discomforts

    Man City 0-1 Man Utd

    Does Pep Guardiola know what he's got himself into?

    Manchester City have lost as many home Premier League games this season, as they had in their previous four seasons combined (5).

    Getting their form sorted at the Etihad Stadium will be high on the Spaniard's agenda.

  4. Get Involved


    Dave Wood: Now would be a good time to sort our Carricks contract. Immense today.

    and: Top 4 was on. Then it was off. Back on. Back off. Back on again. No idea what's happening.

    Max Boyle: Thought Carrick and Schneiderlin were both superb today, showed the folly of Fellaini in recent weeks. 

    Olawale Oriola: What a great match by united today! The young lads show character throughout the Game. next season will be better

    Stephen Cummins: Plenty of people critical of LVG and rightly so but he deserves credit for promoting youth, and in Rashford we have a gem.

  5. 'A proud manager'

    Man City 0-1 Man Utd

    Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal: "We played a very good first-half with a goal and also had more chances and we didn't receive a lot of chances against us.

    "In the second-half we had to start again, we started well but after that we had to fight till the end because we were tired from playing on Thursday.They played on Tuesday so that is two days more rest which is important.

    "I am a very proud manager today.

    "This victory was necessary the gap was four points and now is one point, plus we are equal with West Ham which is important, what is possible? I can not say.

    "We do not have Thursday matches now and that is a positive thing.

    "Rashford is very quick and Demichelis looked like the years are catching up with him. He was a very good defender, he was my centre-back in Bayern but that is the life of football.

  6. 'A good day at the office'

    Tottenham 3-0 Bournemouth

    Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino: "It was a good day at the office. One week ago in Germany we had a bad day but we were good from the beginning today and I'm very happy with the collective performance. 

    "It was very important to score early in the game, then we had to show a strong mentality to manage the game. We created a lot of chances and it was very important to win 3-0 and get a clean sheet. Today was one of the best performances of the season.

    "The international break has not come at a bad time. It gives us time to relax and analyse. Ninety percent of the squad is with the national team. We have seven games ahead and when the players come back from the national teams, we hope it is with a good spirit." 

  7. Tynchy, what's the score?

    Man City 0-1 Man Utd

  8. 'Plenty still to play for'

    Tottenham 3-0 Bournemouth

    Tottenham goalscorer Harry Kane: "We wanted to come out the blocks flying and there's no better way to do that than get an early goal. We grew into the game and got better and better. It was a solid 3-0 victory. 

    "We scored early which helped but I think we are a calm team anyway, that's the way we always play press high and keep the ball. At half-time we said we didn't want to take our foot off the pedal and the early goal in the second half helped with that. 

    "I'd rather have the five-point lead but with Leicester usually playing first we know what we have to do and there's still a lot of points up for grabs. The international break has not come at a good time, we would like to carry on playing, but it might give us a breather [from the league] and focus on it when we get back to get as many points as we can." 

  9. Problems for England

    Man City 0-1 Man Utd

    Manuel Pellegrini refused to comment on the title race.

    He said: "We did not deserve to lose, we dominated the game from the first minute we were the only team who wanted to play the whole game but we missed three or four chance to score.

    "Every player has bad days, Demichelis was nervous, it was not good for him to continue.We didn’t score goals but that is not his fault.

    "We will see about Joe Hart and know in the next two or three days how long he will be out for."

    Full quotes to come.

  12. 'We were taught a lesson'

    Tottenham 3-0 Bournemouth

    Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe: "We weren't great today, we were well off it in the first half. Second half we had a right go and the third goal killed the game.

    "We knew they were a good side but with and without ball we were poor. It’s a good lesson because they are a top-class side and it shows we have some way to go."

  13. Spurs close the gap

    Tottenham's comfortable 3-0 win against Bournemouth means things are looking a little tighter at the top.

    Meanwhile, Manchester City's derby defeat means they will be looking nervously over their shoulders.

    Chris Smalling talking to Sky Sport: "It is so refreshing to see a young kid like Marcus run at defenders, I know if I was up against him I would find it difficult.

    "It was difficult for me today as I got an early booking and I had to be more careful and a couple of times pull out of tackles but I managed it."

    Robbie Savage

    BBC Radio 5 live

    "Marcus Rashford was outstanding. Martin Demichelis put in one of the worst performances I have ever seen by a Premier League player. City were shambolic. When Louis van Gaal needs a performance he gets one from his team and they are now one point behind City."
