Man Utd boss Mourinho: My derby man of the match was...

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho says Eric Bailly can be proud of his performance in defeat to Manchester City.

Despite the disappointing result, Mourinho found something to be happy about - the performance of £30m summer signing Bailly.

He said: "We can speak about Eric Bailly, who was playing for Villarreal who never played in a derby of this dimension, but was our best player, was the player of the month, and produced a fantastic performance. He coped with many situations.

“So you never know the way players are going to react, especially when you don't know them so well.

“And after only a couple of months it is too early to know them really well."
