Sir Alex Ferguson: "Advantage to them (Man City), of course.
"(But) It's not a time to panic - we have the experience to cope with that.
"We started reasonably well. But they scored a fantastic goal and it really picked everyone up in the stadium.
"The second was a killer for us. We didn't make enough of our possession.
"Ba and Shoal Ameobi are very strong, big aggressive lads.
"They didn't tear us apart, but they were a handful.
"The story of the game was they had two fantastic strikes which put them in the driving seat."
