United ends Guardiola's streak

Bruno Fernandes put the Red Devils ahead on the first play of the game and Luke Shaw sentenced the crash right at the start of the restart.


It had to be Manchester United. It had to be in a derby, it had to be in the opponent's field. It had to be like in 2018, when nobody expected victory and everyone was counting down the days for a new title. And this is how the streak of Pep Guardiola's City has ended: a 0-2 against the rival of his city that, despite everything, despite ending a streak of 21 consecutive wins and other historical figures, It still maintains the 'citizens' with an 11-point advantage over the Solskjaer team, a distance more than enough to face the last ten days of the Premier League with guarantees. It is only a warning, and precisely from whom it hurts the most in these cases.

Bruno Fernandes put the Red Devils ahead on the first play of the game, when Martial caused a penalty that transformed the Portuguese. A goal that he wanted to score, after more than 600 minutes without seeing a goal against a Top-6 rival. In total, Bruno has 16 goals and 10 assists in this Premier, the most productive footballer in the competition. It was the first time since November that Manchester City trailed on the scoreboard, unknown territory, despite having control of the ball. Every local soccer player ever shot except Ruben Dias. One of the clearest came from Mahrez's boots, but Gabriel Jesús did not reach the far post.

However, Manchester United grouped well in their field with Henderson in goal, following the absence of De Gea. And every time he ran to attack, he did it with spaces thanks to Rashford or Martial. Also due to the increases of Shaw, who was full and who got the 0-2 entering the area. City tried until the end but lacked a goal. Rodri hit the post, Sterling did not hit the head and Foden, who revolutionized the second half, also failed to score.
