Manchester United 0-2 Manchester City: Solskjaer’s men chastened again in humbling derby defeat

Pep
Guardiola’s
side
had
failed
to
win
any
of
their
previous
four
league
meetings
with
United
but
were
deservedly
two
goals
ahead
at
half-time.

Eric
Bailly
became
the
first
United
player
to
score
an
own
goal
against
City
in
the
Premier
League
and
Bernardo
Silva
profited
from
some
terrible
defending
to
squeeze
in
a
second
shortly
before
the
interval.

United,
beaten
5-0
by
Liverpool
in
their
most
recent
match
at
Old
Trafford,
failed
to
offer
any
sort
of
response
in
the
second
half
as
the
pressure
continues
to
grow
on
Ole
Gunnar
Solskjaer.

United
had
kept
three
successive
clean
sheets
against
City
in
the
league
but
were
behind
inside
seven
minutes
when
Bailly
sliced
Joao
Cancelo’s
whipped
cross
from
the
left
into
his
own
net.

Cristiano
Ronaldo
had
a
powerful
volley
kept
out
by
Ederson

United’s
only
on-target
attempt
of
the
first
half

but
only
David
de
Gea
kept
the
scoreline
down
as
City
took
complete
control.

However,
after
keeping
out
Gabriel
Jesus,
Kevin
De
Bruyne
and
team-mate
Victor
Lindelof,
De
Gea
was
far
too
easily
beaten
by
Silva,
who
ghosted
in
behind
Luke
Shaw
and
turned
in
Cancelo’s
cross
from
a
tight
angle.

Chances
were
hard
to
come
by
in
a
far
quieter
second
period,
with
the
visitors
going
closest
to
finding
the
net
through
a
Phil
Foden
strike
that
grazed
the
outside
of
the
post
late
on.


What
does
it
mean?
United
lose
again
at
Old
Trafford

City
may
not
have
managed
the
five
goals
Liverpool
scored
here
two
weeks
ago,
but
the
manner
of
the
victory
was
just
as
straightforward
and
was
never
in
doubt
from
the
moment
they
scored
their
second
goal.

United
have
now
lost
eight
matches
at
Old
Trafford
in
all
competitions
this
calendar
year,
which
is
their
worst-such
record
since
1989,
and
could
find
themselves
11
points
off
top
spot
should
Chelsea
beat
Burnley
later
on
Saturday.

Guardiola’s
men
looked
far
more
like
their
usual
selves
on
the
back
of
last
week’s
shock
2-0
loss
at
home
to
Crystal
Palace,
meanwhile,
as
they
moved
back
to
within
two
points
of
leaders
Chelsea,
who
have
that
game
in
hand.


Cancelo
runs
the
show

The
attacking
left-back
played
in
the
cross
for
Bailly’s
own
goal
and
sent
in
a
delightful
delivery,
albeit
one
that
should
have
been
dealt
with,
for
Silva’s
strike

the
Portugal
international’s
third
goal
in
his
last
four
appearances
at
Old
Trafford.

Cancelo
had
more
touches
(125)
than
any
player
on
the
field

Lindelof
was
United’s
most
involved
player
with
67

while
nobody
managed
more
shots
(four)
and
tackles
(four)
in
what
was
an
impressive
all-round
display.


United’s
calamitous
defending

From
Bailly
turning
an
easy-to-deal-with
cross
into
his
own
net

one
that
should
never
have
been
allowed
to
enter
the
box
in
the
first
place

to
De
Gea
and
Shaw
watching
on
as
Silva
turned
in
a
second,
United’s
defending
was
yet
again
shambolic.

The
Red
Devils
have
now
conceded
at
least
once
in
each
of
their
last
14
home
games
in
all
competitions,
their
longest
run
without
a
clean
sheet
at
Old
Trafford
since
a
club-record
run
of
21
between
April
1958
and
March
1959.


What’s
next?

United
travel
to
Watford
on
their
return
to
Premier
League
action
after
the
international
break.
City
host
Everton
at
the
Etihad
Stadium
on
November
21.
