Claudio Bravo made his Manchester City debut in the 2-1 victory against Manchester United in Saturday's Derby, and the Chilean certainly had an eventful match, which included some great distribution, a little shaky moments with the ball on his feet, a terrible mistake that led to a United goal, and a challenge on Wayne Rooney that Jose Mourinho deemed as a red card offense (because of course).

Despite all the craziness, Bravo was happy with his performance on Saturday and how his early days at City have been:

“Good, good. Comfortable. We have a team here that has personality, we are improving day by day and the matches that we want to win are these, against our rivals, and for that reason I am happy. I am happy with my first week, with the work I have done.

“It was a very important victory for us. In the first half we were incredible when we controlled the ball, had lots of chances and in the second half we played differently - defensively we were very, very solid.

“We played well against a very big team and a team that was very strong and they kept putting the ball in the air to try and complicate things but we survived.”

Bravo is a world-class goalkeeper, make no mistake. He will get better as time goes on. It's that simple.
