5 Talking Points From The Manchester Derby

5 Talking Points From The Manchester Derby

1.Record setters

Another win another record.It is 14 consecutive Premier League wins for Pep’s men after ending United’s 40 unbeaten home games streak in a 2-1 victory on Sunday evening.Surely the talk of emulating Arsenal invincibles must be back on the cards now

Manchester City

2.Scoreline Flatters Man United

The 2-1 doesn’t really reflect the real image of the game,the home side offered little or nothing,just seating back waiting for Manchester City to have a go at them,City were all over them and outclassed them in every department,City could have easily scored atleast 4 goals.Well deserved winners for the day

3.Mourinho and United left exposed

José Mourinho has for a long time been at the receiving end of criticism from fans concerning his playing style that comprises of cautious and turgid tactics.Unsurprisingly,Mourinho played it safe and decided to park the bus against Manchester City who dominated them the whole game.With that kind of display,Europe’s big boys must be looking at United with a desiring keen eye in hope to be drawn against them in the Uefa Champions League

4.Horrendous Lukaku

Romelu Lukaku has been a far cry from what United fans expected from him against big teams,he once again looked clueless and lost.The Belgian was at fault for both Manchester City’s goals and missed a sitter at the end moments of the game.It seems like he is the most affected one of the group by Pogba’s absence,went 810 minutes playing and only found the back of the net once in the Premier League.Embarrassing stat for a £90m striker


5.Derby Let Down

Not quite a world class derby game everyone was expecting the game did not live up to bill.City dominated the game,but they rarely worked hard for it the same manner they won their last 3 games.2 gifted goals and poor refereeing decisions might have just took away the intensity of the game.Good game but not the classic everybody was hoping for
