Man United beat City

Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORTS -

MANCH­ESTER, Eng­land (AP): JOSE MOUR­INHO got his own back on great man­age­rial ri­val Pep Guardi­ola as Manch­ester United beat a weak­ened Manch­ester City 1-0 in the fourth round of the English League Cup yes­ter­day, with Juan Mata scor­ing the sec­ond­half win­ner.

Six weeks after City’s 2-1 win at Old Traf­ford in the Pre­mier League, United got a mea­sure of re­venge as Mour­inho’s de­ci­sion to play a vir­tu­ally full-strength team paid off.

Guardi­ola rested most of his key play­ers – start­ing 19-yearolds Aleix Gar­cia and Pablo Maf­feo among his fringe play­ers – and City faded after a de­cent start, fail­ing to have a shot on tar­get in an er­ror-strewn match.

Mean­while, ob­jects were thrown and there were scuf­fles be­tween both sets of fans be­hind one of the goals at Lon­don Sta­dium as West Ham ad­vanced 2-1 in an­other derby match, against Chelsea.

Cheikhou Kouy­ate headed in Mark Noble’s cross in the 11th minute, and Edim­il­son Fer­nan­des added a se­cond in the 48th to see off a weak­ened Chelsea line-up. Gary Cahill scored a late con­so­la­tion goal for the vis­i­tors.

SOUTHAMPTON 1, SUN­DER­LAND 0

Sofi­ane Bo­ufal scored the win­ner for Southampton against Sun­der­land in the 66th minute on his first start since his clu­brecord move from Lille in Au­gust.
