The players of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer went to win on the lawn of the Etihad Stadium in Manchester City during the derby this Sunday evening (0-2).

Surprise at the Etihad Stadium. Manchester United, runner-up to its neighbor citizen, won on Manchester City’s lawn during the exciting derby between the two teams.

The Red Devils quickly took control of the game against their neighbors, as Gabriel Jesus fouled Anthony Martial in Ederson’s box from the first seconds.

After exactly 101 seconds of play, Bruno Fernandes transformed the penalty despite an Ederson who had fallen on the right side, but whose hand lacked firmness (2nd, 0-1). It was the earliest goal the Citizens conceded at the Etihad Stadium in Premier League history.

Manchester City is not awake and loses many balls in the first minutes of the meeting, offering great opportunities to Marcus Rashford (2nd, 16th) or Luke Shaw (3rd).

But Pep Guardiola’s team reacted little by little, and got their foot on the ball. However, the Mancunian defense is very well aligned and prevents the Citizens from getting closer to the cages to find the loophole.

At the end of the first period, the Citizens see De Bruyne’s free kick shave the crossbar of Dean Henderson (43rd), before seeing Gabriel Jesus (45th) miss the frame after a cross at the far post of Mahrez, and return to the locker room led .

The Skyblues get an opportunity on the return but Rodri again misses the target (48th). A missed opportunity before seeing Manchester United double the stake and widen the gap a little more.

Mounted at the forefront, Luke Shaw relies on Marcus Rashford in the box before triggering a left strike low to the ground, which ends its race in the nets of Ederson (52nd, 2-0). City are unrecognizable and unsuccessful.

Pep Guardiola’s players missed the target on numerous occasions, and finally saw their streak of 21 consecutive victories in all competitions come to an end, two wins behind Bayern Munich’s record of Flick (23).

The Citizens still keep eleven points ahead of Manchester United in the standings. The Red Devils return to Leicester City in the standings.
