Manchester City settles the Manchester summit, and United continues to suffer at home


Manchester City, the English Premier League title holder, beat its host and struggling neighbor Manchester United 2-0 in a derby at Old Trafford on Saturday.

City started the match in a great way when, after seven minutes, they went ahead with an own goal by United defender Eric Bailly when he converted a cross from Joao Cancelo into his own net.

United, whose defense was shaky despite relying on three defenders at the back, relied on goalkeeper David de Gea to stay in the match as the Spaniard saved a series of chances.

But before the end of the first half, Pep Guardiola’s team benefited from repeated mistakes in the home defense when Luke Shaw allowed a cross from Cancelo to reach Bernardo Silva at the far post to put the ball past De Gea.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team did not achieve any victory in the last four matches at home and lost three of them.

City is second with 23 points, two points behind leaders Chelsea, which hosts Burnley later today.
