Manchester United Beat Manchester City 2–0 in Derby To Claim Bragging Rights, Twitter Congratulates Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Men

Manchester United ended Manchester City’s 21-match winning run with a 2-0 victory at the Etihad on Sunday. Bruno Fernandes and Luke Shaw scored at the start of each half to halt City’s 28-match unbeaten run in all competitions. The win helped Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s United leapfrog Leicester City into second place and move 11 points behind City. This was United’s first win in four matches across all competitions and extended their unbeaten away run to 22 league matches. With this win, Solskjaer has also won three consecutive matches at the Etihad.

City enjoyed more possession, had more shots on target but lacked the finishing touch. The only time the home side really tested United goalkeeper Dean Henderson was when Olexandr Zinchenko forced Henderson into a diving save after 24 minutes. The others either shot straight or over. Illkay Gundogan had two openings but both times he lamely put the ball straight to the goalkeeper while Kevin de Bruyne looked out of sorts and Riyad Mahraz blasted one into the stands. Steven Gerrard Leads Rangers To First Scottish Premiership Title in 10 Years.

United went ahead as early as the 1st minute when Gabriel Jesus tripped Anthony Martial inside the City penalty box. Jesus, who had conceded possession inside his own half, was eager to win it back and in the process fouled Martial when the United striker was lining up to take a shot. Fernandes stepped up and converted to give United the lead.

The visitors could have had a second minutes later when Shaw found himself with space inside the City box. But his shot was straight at Ederson. The United left-back would get his goal eventually just five minutes into the second half finishing off a move he had started after a quick one-two with Marcus Rashford. Take a look at some top reactions on Twitter.
