Angry Guardiola says City success down to self-help

Under-fire Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer faces fresh scrutiny and pressure after Manchester City provided their latest Old Trafford humbling.

A fortnight on from the embarrassing 5-0 home humiliation at the hands of rivals Liverpool, the Red Devils fell to another one-sided defeat as they returned to the scene of the crime for the 186th Manchester derby.

Pep Guardiola’s men cruised to a victory far more comfortable than the 2-0 scoreline suggested, but Eric Bailly’s own goal and a preventable Bernardo Silva effort was enough to ease past United.

Solskjaer had called the loss to Liverpool the darkest day of his near three-year reign and the manner of this loss to their neighbours will lead to renewed pressure during the international break.


FULL TIME: Man United 0-2 Man City

Stones gets up for a late header at the back post to beat Ronaldo to the ball and keep City’s clean sheet.

There are a few boos at the full-time whistle, but there’s not the same anger as there was following the 5-0 defeat to Liverpool two weeks ago. There’s a complete sense of apathy on a damp day at Old Trafford, but the City fans are having their own party in the corner. It’s a huge win for them.

90 mins: De Bruyne is hacked down by Fernandes before Ronaldo slides in on the Belgian, and is booked. That sums up his day.

Man United 0-2 Man City

87 mins: City appeal for a penalty after Jesus ducks around the outside of Telles and is brought down, but the full back got a touch onto the ball as he cleared it for a corner.

The lack of fight here from United is quite remarkable.

Man United 0-2 Man City

85 mins: Another chance! City are toying with United now, they just can’t finish them off. The ball breaks to Stones in the box following a City corner but his swivelled shot goes just wide of the post.

Man United 0-2 Man City

81 mins: Chance! It should be game over. City slice United open and De Bruyne feeds Foden in the left channel. He strikes across De Gea but rather drags the shot, as is kisses the post as it bobbles wide.

Man United 0-2 Man City

79 mins: United belatedly show a bit of fight with a succession of crosses into the City box, which are all cleared by Dias.

Van de Beek is brought on to huge cheers from the Old Trafford crowd - the biggest of the day - as Fred makes way.

Man United 0-2 Man City

75 mins: Chance! It’s another good move from City. Cancelo’s shot breaks to Gundogan, who digs a cross to the back post. United clear but it falls to De Bruyne on the volley, but he slices it wide.

Man United 0-2 Man City

71 mins: Shaw has gone down again and will be replaced by Alex Telles. It looks like he might have been concussed, in which case he should not have been able to continue after initially going down a few minutes ago.

City are in complete control and there is no sign of a United comeback at this stage.

Man United 0-2 Man City

67 mins: Rodri and Shaw go up for a header and it look like the United defender has been caught. He takes a minute or two before getting back to his feet.

Man United 0-2 Man City

65 mins: Chance! Rodri flights a wonderful ball over the top to Gundogan, whose touch lets him down. The German would have been through on goal.

Rashford is United’s second change as he comes on for Greenwood.
