Guardiola congratulates team despite loss to Manchester United

The reigning champions fell further behind Liverpool in the title race after losing to their local rivals but the coach was happy with what he saw

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says he has "no regrets" over his side's approach to Saturday's match against Manchester United, despite going down to a 2-1 derby defeat.

The reigning Premier League champions slipped up at home against their local rivals, who were 2-0 up within 30 minutes after Marcus Rashford converted a penalty and Anthony Martial slotted past Ederson.

Nicolas Otamendi pulled one back for the home side with five minutes left, but there was no way back for Guardiola's side, who are now 14 points behind current league leaders Liverpool.
