Mancini on the United victory

New, comment
"Now I would say we have a 51% chance."

"After 1-0 it was important that we recover and win - the players did very well after 15 minutes, at the start we were nervous. But we know the second leg will be difficult.

"I am very happy for Carlos, because he is ex-United and scored two. Sometimes you must defend, especially playing against a strong team like United, and Shay Given had a fantastic night.

"I didn't see the penalty incident from the bench, it was too far away - but I watched Carlos take it and score! It was important that we scored before half time.

"This was my first derby, but I wasn't nervous. It was most important to win my first derby, and I want to win my second derby as well if possible!"
