It’s been a wonderful week for the Blue half of Manchester, following Sunday’s Derby triumph over United.
The bragging rights belong to us and the superb victory has been fittingly celebrated by all connected to the Club.
GALLERY: Best of the action | City 3-1 United
We don’t often toot our own horn but you simply must check out this sensational video by CityTV, entitled ‘How the Derby was won’, as our producers take you behind-the-scenes in the build-up to the big game – focusing on the small details that proved so key: the thoughts of the players, the training schedules, the food prepared… everything.
We couldn’t compile a list of our favourite things of the week without mentioning this glorious 44-pass goal, which sealed the win over the Reds.
A special guest joined in the post-match celebrations in the dressing room, as cruiserweight boxing champion Oleksandr Usyk – fresh from his Saturday night triumph over Tony Bellew – visited the Premier League Champions.
It’s safe to say: Shaun Goater enjoyed Derby Day!
Admittedly, we don’t think the Goat will be asked to participate in Strictly Come Dancing any time soon… Can someone let him know the Poznan is not a solo dance move?!
Sunday heralded further cause for celebration as it marked an incredible achievement for City captain Steph Houghton, as the defender earned her 100th England cap in the Lionesses’ game against Sweden.
Ever humble, the centre-back, who received her first call-up in 2007 and has since led her country to a World Cup bronze medal and Euros semi-finals spot, dedicated her accomplishment to her family and friends.
Here’s to the next 100, skip!

We were delighted to welcome Brazilian maestro Elano to the Etihad Stadium, as the midfield magician returned to his old stomping ground to savour the Manchester Derby.
The fans’ favourite spent a few days at the Club and was thrilled to meet Pep Guardiola. As he explains in this tweet, the pair spent time sharing stories and exchanging knowledge and experiences about the world of football.
Elano dubbed the meeting ‘the most special moment of my coming to England’.
We can think of a few!
Calma prof. Rs. Obrigado @pepteam. Ja era fã do seu trabalho, agora ainda mais. Ficamos por quase 30 minutos partilhando histórias, trocando conhecimentos e experiências sobre o mundo do futebol. Esse foi o momento mais especial da minha vinda a Inglaterra. #ThankYou pic.twitter.com/O99KU4AbH1— Elano Blumer (@elanoblumer) November 12, 2018
As Sunday marked the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day, the world paused to remember those who had fought and fallen in war.
Members of our Academy teams planted trees in commemoration at the City Football Academy, and visited war veterans at Broughton House.
We will remember them.

A fantastic week became even better for Leroy Sane, as the German netted his first senior goal for his country in Die Mannschaft’s 3-0 friendly win over Russia.
The winger opened the scoring with a cool finish, having raced into the penalty area to make himself available as Serge Gnabry burst forward.
A moment he’ll never forget!
Congratulations to Pep Guardiola and Jen Beattie on their success in the Northwest Football Awards.
Unsurprisingly, the Catalan scooped the Manager of the Year award, while the Scot was named Women's Player of the Year.
More good news!
