Pep Guardiola lauds five Manchester United players after second leg defeat

Pep Guardiola has rained praise down on five Manchester United players after their win against Manchester City on Wednesday.

Despite the 1-0 victory at Etihad Stadium, United bowed out of the Carabao Cup following the 3-1 loss at Old Trafford in the first leg.

City squandered a host of chances in the game but United mounted a good display with Nemanja Matic netting the lone goal of the tie in the first half.

Guardiola heaped praise on five United players after the game, "The quality of the players up front is incredible.

"I had the feeling, I said before when we lost at home against them, they are trying to do what the manager Ole wants, and I think it works.

"Maybe they are not consistent in all the games, they struggle at home a little bit with the teams who defend deep.

"But, I like the way they play, the qualities they have. Lindelof I saw him in Benfica, Luke Shaw is an incredible type of player, Maguire, one of the best central defenders in the world.

"The people up front they are so fast. Matic and Fred, they are incredible players, Matic is an outstanding player. In time, they will do it and be back to what United was for many years."
