Manchester United ended the 21 wins streak of Manchester City on Sunday with a 2-0 victory. A goal by Bruno Fernandes and a rare strike from defender Luke Shaw was enough for Manchester United to win the match. The Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side got an amazing win this Sunday. Manchester City entered the Premier League match and hadn’t lost in all competitions since November 21. Despite the loss on Sunday City stays at 11 points clear at the top of the table. Thanks to the winning streak since November.
Pep Guardiola said that even though they lost this match 21 wins in a row isn’t a joke. The winning streak is also a piece of news. He said that the team will recollect and talk about what went wrong. Pep also said that they will have to start winning again.
The league is not a sprint, you can’t always have back-to-back wins. City hadn’t trailed in the Premier League for 20 matches, so no one could have imagined that United would have a great start.
The penalty given after Anthony Martial was clumsily tripped by Gabriel Jesus gave United a head start. Fernandes stepped up to the opportunity and used the penalty past City keeper Ederson.
Ederson could have put in the better effort but Fernandes just did it too well. However, after the one goal, the dominating possession was with City and the match fell into a predictable pattern. But in the second half after Shawn’s goal, City seemed rattled by the double lead or United. They had been confident of the win, but Manchester United’s two goals sealed the game.
