Pep Guardiola reportedly slammed his Manchester City side after the Carabao Cup derby – despite their easy 3-1 win at Old Trafford.
City were 3-0 up against Manchester United at the break and could have scored more in a totally dominant first-half display, but their manager was angry that his side took their foot off the pedal in the second half, and made his feelings know to the players.
While he praised some individual performances he was not happy with the team as a group for letting United off the hook, reports The Sun.
The City boss was looking exasperated on the touchline at times during the second period on Tuesday night despite his side looking comfortable.
United were completely lost in the first half as Guardiola played two false nines in Kevin De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva.
City could easily have been five up by the break which is why Guardiola was annoyed they did not go on to make the scoreline more comprehensive in the second-half.
City travel to Aston Villa in the Premier League on Sunday, sitting 14 points behind Liverpool, who have a game in hand.
