Barcelona 5-0 Real Madrid (La Liga 10/11)

Jose Mourinho's start to life as Real Madrid manager was the best of any manager in its history. Still, it came to a bitter end against arguably the best club side ever in Barcelona, who humiliated their rivals in a 5-0 demolition at the Nou Camp.

Two goals inside 18 minutes from both Xavi and Pedro set the Catalonian club on its way against Madrid, who were blown away by Pep Guardiola's scintillating tika-taka style. Angel Di Maria drew a fine save from Victor Valdes, but that was as close as Mourinho's men came in an utterly dominant first-half display.

A second-half brace from David Villa compounded more misery on Mourinho, with Lionel Messi supplying the all-time Spanish top goal scorer on both occasions. With more than 30 minutes left on the clock, it was a damage limitation job for Mourinho. Barcelona did show some mercy to their title rivals, taking their foot off the gas in the closing stages but capped off an all-time classic el Clasico with a stoppage-time goal from youngster Jeffren Suarez.

Inter Milan 3-2 Barcelona on aggregate (Champions League 09/10)

A true Mourinho masterclass and not just his biggest victory over Guardiola, but perhaps the biggest in his career.

Despite Barcelona being heavy favourites to qualify for the final and going 1-0 up through a Pedro goal, Inter gained a 3-1 advantage at the San Siro, as Diego Milito set up both Wesley Sneijder and Maicon to turn the tie on its head. Milito then capped off a fine night for Inter, capitalising on Sneijder's miscued header to nod home to take a significant lead to the Nou Camp.

The second leg at the Nou Camp was far from plain sailing for Mourinho's men, who faced a baptism of fire against Guardiola's team. Barcelona dominated the game throughout, with Inter not registering a single shot. The job was made all the more challenging when Thiago Motta saw red for a hand in Sergio Busquets' face in the 28th minute.

Despite this, Inter somehow managed to hold out until the 84th minute before a Gerard Pique goal set up a grandstand finish. Miraculously Bojan Krkic had a late stoppage-time goal ruled out for handball by Yaya Toure, which ultimately saw Inter through and sparked an incredible on-pitch celebration from Mourinho in front of 97,000 watching spectators.

From the first minute to last and the post-match celebrations, it was Mourinho in a nutshell

Manchester City 2-3 Manchester United (Premier League 17/18)

Pep Guardiola's Manchester City looked all set to rub Jose Mourinho's Manchester United noses in it as they looked to wrap up the Premier League title against their bitter rivals back in the 17/18 season. A first-half masterclass from Pep Guardiola's team set City well on their way with a powerful header from captain Vincent Kompany and Ilkay Gundogan, adding a second with a smart turn and finish.

Despite being thoroughly dominated, the second half was the polar opposite from Mourinho's team, who hit back with two rapid goals from Paul Pogba. Chris Smalling capped off an incredible turnaround, netting a 69th-minute header from an Alexis Sanchez freekick, reprieving himself for being responsible for Kompany's goal in the first half.

The last 20 was a tense finale, with players from both teams coming head-to-head. A tackle inside the city box from Ashley Young on Sergio Aguero was lucky to go unpunished for the Red Devils, who had to rely upon a late world-class David De Gea save to push Guardiola's celebrations back another day.

Bayern Munich 2-2 Chelsea (Super Cup 13/14)

It was the start of new beginnings for either manager when they met in the Super Cup as Guardiola joined Bayern Munich whilst Mourinho began his second stint at Chelsea.

An Andre Schurrle cut back got Chelsea off to the best possible start, with Fernando Torres finishing off a brilliant move. Frank Ribery equalised just after halftime to set up an intriguing second half, which saw Ramires see red in the 86th minute. After finishing 1-1, extra time beckoned and consequently saw Chelsea retake the lead with an Eden Hazard goal who smashed it past Manuel Neuer until a last gasp 120th minute Javi Martinez goal took the teams to an unlikely penalty shootout.

A near-perfect penalty shootout followed until a young Romelu Lukaku stepped up for the 10th penalty in which he gave Neuer a simple save down to his left to make to see Bayern and Pep win the Super Cup.

Manchester United 1-2 Manchester City (Premier League 17/18)

This game had enormous ramifications for the Premier League title early on and a win even this early in the season in December was likely to put one hand on the title for City.

Confusion from a corner allowed David Silva the opportunity to hook home to give City a deserved lead in a dominant first-half display. Despite being utterly superior to their neighbours, a mix-up at the back between Nicolas Otamendi and Fabian Delph gift-wrapped a goal to Marcus Rashford, who applied a composed finish to give United some hope before half time. Otamendi swiftly made amends for his mistake shortly after halftime, though with another goal from a corner that United should have done better with.

Despite it not being the most entertaining of games on this list, what it did have was huge on the 2017/18 Premier League title race as it put Guardiola's men incredibly far ahead so early on. It ultimately took City 11 points clear of their rivals after just 16 games in a season that saw Pep's side amass 100 points.
