Possession: Manchester City, 68%

Three things we learned from Manchester United vs Manchester City

1. Contrast is stark: The gulf between the comfort và understanding of Man city in possession & Manchester United’s appearance in doing just about anything was Grand Canyon-sized. The first half stats were appalling if you’re a home supporter. Possession was 68% lớn Man City, with a 10-3 edge in shot attempts, more than double the amount of completed passes, và — stunningly — more interceptions than United despite that disparity in possession.

2. Finish required: Man thành phố led 1-0 on the Bailly own goal when cameras shot lớn Pep Guardiola enthusiastically and almost frenetically imparting instructions khổng lồ Phil Foden, as if the manager realized that United’s poor start had given thành phố the opportunity to lớn salt this away rather than leave the door open for Bruno Fernandes or Cristiano Ronaldo khổng lồ steal something from this. And that felt even more imperative when United’s first real spell of possession led lớn Luke Shaw’s cross for Ronaldo, smashed on goal but saved by Ederson. The eventual scorer of any second goal would loom large…

3. United plays for 0-0, then 0-1, & loses it before half: What’s happened to lớn Old Trafford? United was here lớn play for the game being in the balance late and David De Gea nearly allowed them to vì chưng so. Sadly, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would have to lớn settle for the match being in the balance late in the half when Maguire and Shaw didn’t vì anything with a searching cross khổng lồ the back post và Bernado Silva’s acrobatic poke at it caught De Gea off-balance & hit the keeper before going across the line. Sad.

Man of the Match: Joao Cancelo

For the last two weeks, maybe longer, Cancelo has looked like a completed Trent Alexander-Arnold. He’s an attacking threat who isn’t left for dead in his own end, and his three-assist match against Club Brugge wasn’t even that much better than this one.

Manchester United vs Manchester đô thị recap

City dominated the early stages và went ahead through an Eric Bailly own goal when Joao Cancelo’s cross was diverted in the wrong direction.

United had a chance khổng lồ make it đơn with its first real true spell of possession, Shaw crossing for Ronaldo & the Portuguese slashing a well-hit but central shot that Ederson parried. Mason Greenwood couldn’t reach the rebound.

Foden soon led a foray down the left và his cross to lớn Kevin De Bruyne saw a shot blocked by Shaw amongst a sea of red defenders vacuum-sealed the Belgian, leaving a rebound for Gabriel Jesus that was brilliant saved by a recovering David De Gea.

But it was 2-0 & felt done and dusted when Cancelo’s swept-in cross was left by Maguire khổng lồ Shaw, who looked flummoxed and didn’t khuyến mãi with it, allowing Bernardo lớn acrobatically slap the ball toward goal, off an unsuspecting De Gea and over the line for 2-0.

What’s sad is that Pep Guardiola wasn’t worried about much other than game management & took his foot off the pedal even earlier than Jurgen Klopp did in the 5-0 humiliation in the same building. It’s starting lớn feel lượt thích clubs don’t have the animosity to lớn step on United, either because Solskjaer’s a nice guy or because it’s just not the same challenge.
