Penalty in the first minute: Manchester United ends City's winning streak
- Title : Penalty in the first minute: Manchester United ends City's winning streak
Manchester United have reported back in the race for the Champions League places and ended the winning streak of city rivals City with a 2-0 away win.
A minute had passed when the front runner put his winning streak in danger: attacker Jesus fouled Martial in his own penalty area, Fernandes overcame Ederson with a little luck from the point (2nd). From then on, the guests had the upper hand and put their city rivals under pressure. Shaw could also have defeated Ederson (4th), who parried a little later against Rashford (16th).
City dominant: But not everything is as usual
The Skyblues took a while to find their way into the game - but then they were there in the usual dominant manner. However, Jesus (19th), Gündogan (19th, 38th) and Mahrez (28th) either got stuck with their shots or were too imprecise. And the league leaders did not regularly hit the baseline or top-class. Zinchenko (24th) and De Bruyne - with a free kick (43rd) - had the best chances, while United was hardly dangerous.
