Mancio gutted by derby defeat

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has admitted the manner of his side's 1-0 defeat to fierce rivals Manchester United on Saturday hurt him badly.

Paul Scholes' header deep into injury time secured the vital win for the Red Devils, while knocking the Citizens' top-four challenge in the process as they were replaced in the coveted position by Tottenham Hotspur, who grabbed a fine 2-1 win over Chelsea.

Speaking to reporters after the game, he said:"That's football, it's incredible, but for us it doesn't change anything, we have another four games.

"We are very disappointed to lose and I'm very angry but always positive. We had some chances and we didn't deserve to lose, but that's football.

"We played a good game but it was difficult for us and United and when Scholes scored in the last few seconds it was unlucky.

"This doesn't change the situation for fourth place – the crucial match will be against Tottenham here."
