Manchester United's Romelu Lukaku, Anthony Martial facing FA Cup fitness race

Yet by setting more than half a dozen new Premier League records in Manchester City's dominant campaign and after finishing nine points ahead a year ago, Guardiola has undeniably again left Mourinho in the shade.

"It's all about having a attractive day and saying goodbye to Michael Carrick in the best way possible", he said.

"For a victor like Michael, to win in his final match has to mean something", Mourinho said. The game was tightly contested with very few scoring opportunities but Marcus Rashford netted the victor in the 34th minute after a vintage pass from Michael Carrick in the lead up.

"My role changes this week and I need to thank Jose for giving me the opportunity", he said. "We will do everything we can next week to bring the FA Cup back here". He is an example for me and I always look at him in training. When quizzed on the prospect, Mourinho stated that these reports are "not true" and that the 22-year-old's absence was due to a knee injury he received in training on Friday. "I think he's the best English player in the game". The crowd, it seemed, could not be bothered until roused in the second half to stand and cheer for Sir Alex Ferguson, who you hoped was not watching from his hospital bed. "This has caused problems, but he missed today's game because he was injured".

For instance, Carrick sent a chip over the top of the Watford defense. Daley Blind, making a first league start since August, swung in the kick, the ball reached Juan Mata who found Rashford, and the striker blazed high from 25 yards.

With just over 20 minutes left to play, Sánchez nearly picked out Mata at the back post with a lobbed cross but the Spaniard could not get on the end of it.

Next came a moment that summed up United's season. While the visiting backline froze, Mata calmly picked out Rashford, who slotted the ball past Heurelho Gomes. Additionally, Rashford's goal stood as the only shot United had on target.

'It's the greatest club in the world and I thank you for your support over the last 12 years, ' he said in his speech.
