Manchester United 0-2 Manchester City: Ole’s Men left singing the Blues

Manchester United 0-2 Manchester City was the scoreline as city puts more pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjær.

The last thing United needed after losing to Liverpool in one of football’s fiercest rivalries on home soil two weeks ago was to fall behind early, and they were masters of their own downfall in doing so.

At the back post, Joo Cancelo gathered the scraps and fizzed a teasing cross into the box, which Eric Bailly converted into his own net. United was starting to get into the game, and they can consider themselves unlucky not to be level at the half-hour mark.

Luke Shaw’s rogue run ended with him picking out Cristiano Ronaldo in the area, but Ederson saved his sweet left-footed volley.

United was all over the place, from being on the attack at one end to desperate defending at the other.

David de Gea kept United in the game by making three outstanding saves to deny Gabriel Jesus, Kevin de Bruyne, and Victor Lindelöf, who came close to scoring United’s second own goal of the day.

The United goalkeeper, on the other hand, was to have a forgettable moment just before the break.

Cancelo’s cross drifted all the way through, and as the ball appeared to be heading for goal, Bernardo Silva stuck out a leg and directed the ball goalwards, and de Gea fumbled into the corner to double City’s lead.

United didn’t create many chances, with a Mason Greenwood 30-yard pop-shot coming the closest the hosts came to regaining control of the game.

Manchester United 0-2 Manchester City displaying on the scoreboard flattered City as they were just toying with United, with Phil Foden rattling the woodwork.

Pep Guardiola’s side needed to win because they had closed the gap on Chelsea, albeit for a few hours, and the pressure is now on the West Londoners to extend their lead.

For United, however, it is difficult to see Solskjr returning.
