Manchester United saw another defeat in the Premier League, losing 2-0 to Manchester City at Old Trafford on Wednesday evening. It was the third defeat in a row for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, their seventh in the last nine matches in all competitions. However, a top four finish is still possible as Arsenal were defeated 3-1 by Wolves.
United started well and took the game to City in the opening stages and had the better opportunities to score in the first half. However, in the second half, City grew into the game, seeking to score, which is what they needed to return to the top of the Premier League table once again, which is exactly what City did.
Just nine minutes into the second half, City found themselves 1-0 up after Bernardo Silva, assisted by Ilkay Gündogan, picked up the ball on the right and drifted into the box. Luke Shaw could not avert the City midfielder from putting his shot past David De Gea. The Liverpool supporters and players might not be best
Just 12 minutes later, City doubled their lead through Leroy Sane, assisted by Raheem Sterling, beat De Gea at the near post, something he needs to become better at stopping
