"The post-match knocking of Manchester United following their goalless draw at Liverpool has been quite stunning.


"I even heard some Manchester City fans crowing, ‘We want to win games and win them well’.


"Which is rubbish — I don’t remember it being about style over substance for them two decades ago when they were scraping through third-tier finals at Wembley.


"City just wanted to get up the leagues back then and they didn’t care how they did it.


"Yet here they are, 20 years and a billionaire sheikh later, basking in the gloriousness of life in Pepville.


"It may well be pretty nice at the moment there but I will tell them this.


"If I was still a player I’d have been much happier with a 0-0 draw away from home against our biggest rivals than scoring seven but conceding two to a Stoke team who will finish in the bottom half of the table.


"Don’t get me wrong, some of the football City have played this season — not least on Saturday — has been amazing, absolutely superb.


"But what will determine Pep Guardiola’s success is not how they play, it’s whether or not they can get one more point than the team in second.


"That isn’t a given while they are conceding two goals in games against teams such as Stoke."
