Manchester united Vs Manchester city | 1-3 | Match Highlights.
It was not a good day for the red devils at all as their derby counter parts took them on a rolling dice past tonight’s game.
Manchester united Vs Manchester city was a huge match for the fans to reflect on as Manchester city took them unawares. Pep guardiola’s side was just in at every moment especially in the first 45 minutes coming from back to front and using Bernardo silver and Kevin debrunye to distract the red devils.
Ole actually taught the match to be a quick one in & put in plans for Counter-attacking runs towards Eder son’s post, but the midfield was heavily secured.

Indeed, the Catalan coach masterminded a dominant and devastating 45 minutes of football that embarrassed United in their own backyard. Guardiola resembled a chess grandmaster with his change of tactics even after Rashford’s Goal walking in with Greenwood.
At the back, Fernandinho and the much-maligned Nicolas Otamendi were too wily for United’s youthful attacking duo of Rashford and Mason Greenwood as the home side failed to have a shot on target in the first half.
Rashford and Greenwood did conjure a goal between them with 20 minutes to go, after Angel Gomes had stolen possession in midfield, but United never really looked like getting themselves back into the game, or indeed the tie.
In last season’s semi-final first leg, City beat League One Burton Albion 9-0, rendering the return fixture irrelevant.
They could have done likewise at Old Trafford on Tuesday night. They really should have. The gulf in class was that big at times. Between both sets of players, and their respective managers.
