Manchester United 2-0 Manchester City: Anthony Martial and Scott McTominay make the most of Ederson’s miserable day as Red Devils do the double over rivals to keep up Champions League push.
Ignore for a moment the fact that this victory may bring forward a date with a dreaded destiny, this was a huge performance, and an even bigger win for Manchester United.

Yes, it may have altered the date Liverpool win the league by more than two weeks – to March 21 at home to Crystal Palace if they can win at Goodison Park against Everton the preceding Monday – but this was a significant result for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his players. It is the first season they have done the league double over their city rivals since 2009-10, and only the second time they have beaten them at Old Trafford in the last decade.

And it was deserved. City had the bulk of the ball, and laid siege when chasing the game in the second-half, but United defended smartly, impressed on the counter attack and Solskjaer is now getting a tune out of Anthony Martial, whose winner was his fourth goal in five games. Nobody can say he hasn’t filled Marcus Rashford’s shoes in those matches, and credit to Solskjaer and his coaching team for that. Without doubt, Martial has grown in this recent spell.
So desperate were City for their equaliser that, in the final minute of injury time, Ederson – who had a very poor game – completely overcooked a quick, counter-attacking throw intended for Nicolas Otamendi, which fell to Scott McTominay, He struck it first time back towards the unguarded goal, and United had the winning margin their performance deserved.

For City, this was another setback, the third time they have lost to United this season – including the second leg Carabao Cup tie – and a result that increases their remoteness from the league leaders. They did enough to equalise in the second-half, when Phil Foden and Nicolas Otamendi came close and Raheem Sterling missed an excellent chances from a Riyad Mahrez cross – but United could have had a penalty when Fred was tripped, and Bruno Fernandes has transformed their midfield in a way Paul Pogba never could. This is a team with the potential to go place; but there’s pain to come first, whether on March 21 or whenever the inevitable occurs.

Possession statistics can be misleading. To read them, as the game approached the half hour, it would appear that Manchester City were dominating. Yet, to the naked eye, this was a balanced game. Oleksandr Zinchenko and then Ilkay Gundogan had both made mistakes that could have let Manchester United in, and Nicolas Otamendi was lucky to have escaped a caution having cleaned out Daniel James. So when Bruno Fernandes was brought down by Gundogan outside the City penalty area to the left, there was plainly danger, given the dead ball expertise of United’s January recruit. So it proved.

He’s a smart thinker, Fernandes, and standing over the ball he chose not to try his luck or curl one, but lift the ball in a cheeky lob, up and over the City defence, wrong-footing Sergio Aguero who was the nearest man to Manchester United’s runner, Anthony Martial. What followed was a well-taken goal, but with a sprinkling of luck. Martial took it down sweetly and hit a low shot at the near post, but City goalkeeper Ederson should have done better, beaten at a tight angle in disappointing fashion. Just two minutes later, Fernandes was perhaps too keen to get on the end of a Luke Shaw cross and got underneath it, or City could have been looking at a significant half-time disadvantage.

  • Micha Richards……… biased much ??? Up there with Micheal Owen as a shit pundit

  • McTominay has goals against Arsenal and Man City this season, not bad

  • Lol it’s funny that none of these so-called “pundits” have the personal integrity to admit that they’ve been wrong about what United main problem was (lack of creativity in midfield) rather than just tying to blame the front players like the low-IQ casuals they are

  • Rednapp go's on about De Bruyne being out and conveniently forgets about Pogba! We both had our best midfielder out. No excuse

  • No one: Mcsauuce.

  • I prefer for entertainment value at least Jose's honesty on performances. Pep, we play good, jose he is miles off, we need way more.

    “I know some city fans, well, one or two”😂😂😂😂

  • 3:39 What is kevin hart doing here?

  • Is this the Japanese version?

  • McSauce sounds and looks like he has a Roy Keane kind of mentality, he will surely be a rough and no nonsense kind of captain in future

  • Wait a minute, Bernardo says they had a bad game, a bad performance, unacceptable, and Pep says the team did a good game, a good first half and the second even better. WTF? Am I missing something here?

  • Mctominay eager to go and celebrate in the dressing with the lads. Kept looking over haha besides the passes martial and dan didn’t give to Bruno it was a solid performance! #Redevils

  • 3 wins over citeh
    3 wins over Chelsea
    Wins over spurs Leicester wolves
    Shame we cant beat the lower teams

  • Didn't Pep spend 250 million on just fullbacks the last 2 seasons.

  • Oops, someone remind Bernardo that they aren't in the Champions league next season

  • So United won because the keeper make 2 mistakes… they don't mention the saves the keeper made. As always, when United win, the opposition sucked… United never plays well for these people. Such negative pricks.

  • congrats , you guys deserve the win.the lion pep is stupid.

  • I will not forget this day

    Man United finally have got leaders, real men in their squad. Passion, aggression, trepidation of losing, refusal to lose. Fernandes, McTominay, Maguire growing.

  • How many adverts?

  • Roy Keane for next James Bond petition

  • The 2nd goal wasn't Eddisson's fault at all but it was of Mendy's. Eddisson placed the ball exactly where he needed it to be. It was Mendy who lost focus and gave away the goal.

  • McTominay can be a father to a lot of 30 year olds. That's how mature he seems.

  • Exactly as keane said the keeper Ederson made two huge blunders otherwise city would have taken it.This win means nothing if we lose to spurs next week.

  • It’s obviously sky’s footage so why you crop the top of the video and add your logo to the stolen footage bamboozles me. Btw the footage looks shit cropped.

  • Keane ripped Richards soul out… the only thing Richards is bursting is them tight trousers

    Cmon Keano…where's your death stare

  • Great to see Scott McTominay prove a lot of Man United fans wrong this season. AWB and Fred were both fantastic.

    We still need signings to compete for title. Sancho, grealish one more defensive addition would be better.

  • Keane has complimented someone!!!!

  • Who wants to hear Roy Keane say ' leaping leprechauns' !

    So let me get this straight, today, in the court of law, if i don't stab someone enough to kill him, I won't be charge for murder.
    Instead, the victim gets jailed for faking the attack.
    Got it.

  • McTominay doesn’t sound very Scottish.

  • I like that talk's of possession can't makes win the game👉🏟👏👏

  • Pep is getting peed off. Soon be off .

  • United still can't hold the ball enough if we need to create positional attacking plays… City still can't figure out how to beat a 3 man front press with high full backs pushing on the winger's space… United often allowed city only a false 9 ball out or a wide ball out… There wasn't enough from City to break down an exemplary defensive effort. United missed 2-3 other cut back goal's and a possible penalty but City got stooged with United s free kick for the first goal. City missed a golden change with Sterling to equalise but apart from that there weren't any other chances that City created. Deserved win.

  • Credit to all brave Manchester united fans who went to lit flares at Woodward s house which eventually made him sign Bruno Fernandez

  • Umtiti

  • Roy is happy ❤️

  • People are saying city didn’t have de bruyne and Laporte but we didn’t have rashford who’s on nineteen goals in all comps this season as well as pogba who’s a world class midfielder and we all know that. Everyone should stop the crying and give credit where credit is due.
