It was really an interesting encounter at Old Trafford as Ole's Manchester United proved too tough for Manchester city. It was one of those games you wouldn't predict its outcome to be in Favour of United few months ago, but here they are, defeating an almighty Manchester City side home and away this season. No doubt the arrival of Bruno Fernandez and Odiong Ighalo has added so much morale to the team. Today, they proved they have what it takes to be in top four and they are in for the ride. Beating City 2-0 is the height of provocation for Pep's side that needs all the confidence they can gather in this world ahead of their second leg match with Real Madrid in no distant time.
The win sees the Red devils sitting fifth with 45 points from 29 games so far. The victory also ensured they maintain the pressure of Lampard's Chelsea who had earlier recorded a convincing 4-0 victory over Everyone at Stamford Bridge. This loss will sure go a long way to boost Madrid's morale when they come visiting The Citizens, though without their charismatic Captain Sergio Ramos who got sent off in the first leg when he tripped Gabriel Jesus. With the premier league already out of sight for City, they will now shift their attention to Arsenal who comes next, a win over Arteta's side will go a long way to send a big message to Los Blancos. Against Manchester United, we saw City unable to break through United's wall, and the reds made sure they drew the first blood through Anthony Marriage after Bruno chipped him in from a freekick spot. In all, it was a very interesting match and I hope City find their way back to winning when they meet Arsenal.
