Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart has admitted that his side had to show Manchester United respect following their rivals' performance at Old Trafford.
"It's a performance that I'm glad we have in the locker but I'd prefer it if we didn't have to use it," said Hart, according to BBC Sport.
"We came wanting three points but respect to Manchester United, we had to defend well and limited them to two half chances.
"We don't want praise, we want points. We are back on top of the league now and we can hopefully kick on."
