Manchester United defeated neighbours Manchester City 2-1 in a Premier League derby played at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday, December 7.
Manchester City were the dominant side in the opening moments of the game. They had more possession and passed better while dominated the opening of the game but Manchester United were the ones with more shots on target.
Their counter attacking move paid off and United took the lead away from home as Bernardo brought down Marcus Rashford in the box after a check by VAR. Rashford dusted himself and sent Ederson the wrong way to the shock of the Etihad.
Manchester United made it a two goal advantage when Anthony Martial received to a ball through to him by Daniel James and maintained the lead to the halftime break.
The second half was not easy for Manchester City as United sat back looking to score on the counter attack. Manchester City could not break down the United stronghold and were given a lifeline when Nicolas Otamendi headed past David De Gea from a corner kick.
Manchester City could not go on to score a second as Manchester United held on for all three points which is another big result after a midweek win over Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur.
Pep Guardiola can point to injuries to key players such as Sergio Aguero, Laporte and Zinchenko but their neighbors were just better.
The reigning champions however had two appeals for a penalty turned down by the VAR. On both occasions the ball hit the Manchester United player on the arm in the box but was not given. Manchester United will count themselves lucky as Manchester City continue to struggle.December 8, 2019 at 4:47 pm #7715DanielParticipant

What i see here is simply the fact that Pep”s tactics has been uncovered. so to win u need to be flexible enough to change tactics.
besides he is a racist. it serves him right
