Two things Manchester United gained from Manchester Derby win

10 April, 2018, 20:15 | Author: Ellis Copeland
  • Manchester City

Events from the past few days have made a mockery of that.

And former Manchester United defender Neville has insisted that he has always been a fan of the France worldwide.

City fans will have to wait a little longer for their fireworks display.

Did a decent job in defence and often tried to link up with Sane but, like all his teammates even he misplaced passes and was poor in his overall play in the second half. They have a weakness about them that can be exploited.

When Pogba slipped through eight minutes after the interval to beat Ederson and give United hope, the defensive demons that put the skids under City in the Champions League quarter-final first leg at Liverpool on Wednesday surfaced once more.

Manchester United are now in second place in the Premier League table as they bid to secure a top-four finish and book their place in the Champions League for next season. And Pogba has now rightly joined that list. "It is the first time we have lost two games in a row, first time in the season it has happened and now we have to recover, try again, come back to basics and win games", the Spaniard added.

Though the Cityzens were not ready to surrender their bragging rights just yet, and Pep Guardiola brought on Kevin De Bruyne, Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus to barrage the United goal, and so they did.

Then they swapped ends and it all went wrong. For Manchester City, it was a minor blip on the road to the league title, but a bigger reminder of the flaws that are slowly coming to the fore in their team, and that is something for Guardiola to address going forward. In any case, points tallies are not the hallmark of the best teams anyway.

It took two missed penalties in injury time, but Wolverampton, which has been the best team all season in the EFL Championship, all but locked up a return to the Premier League. It's a weakness, which pales in comparison to United and Arsenal's best. United were aided in their 1999 triumph by having a rival that refused to yield until the last day of the season.

Manager Alex Ferguson provided an ever so succinct summary of the game afterwards: "Football, eh? Like all the season, I like to be with them and nothing else". They've waltzed past the lapdogs.

He has just got do that most weekends.

United got the clincher from Chris Smalling in the 69th minute. They are frustrated because they wanted to do it today but I congratulated them because they will win it and they deserve it.

Perhaps rather unfairly for them, they've been a victim of their own success and others' failings. The team would go on to win the 2012-13 season.
