Rafael Benitez has won six of his last nine matches against Manchester United in all competitions (D1 L2), including two wins at Old Trafford in that time (4-1 in March 2009 with Liverpool, 1-0 in May 2013 with Chelsea).

They had just seen substitute Alexis Sanchez score a 90th minute victor, only his fourth goal in 26 games since a January move from Arsenal and his first in the league since March.

Manchester City are ready to continue their efforts to buy every player in the world after they turned their attention to Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele, the Sunday Star believes.

"Especially with the bad results, they've been really good to us".
