United gave the surprise at the Emirates Stadium and won against a poor Manchester City that is already 14 points behind Liverpool. Rashford and Martial scored the goals of the 'red devils' and Otamendi cut distances
The City fell with bang in the 'derby' of Manchester against a United that was better and carried the three points of the Emirates Stadium. Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial marked for the 'network devils' and Otamendi reduced distances to few minutes for the end. The defeat leaves to the 'citizens' to 14 points of a Liverpool that went back to win and that has put the direct to do with this Premier League.
The ones of Pep Guardiola threw the Premier in front of a United that put 0-2 too prompt to put him slope up the crash to the venues. Solskjaer Scheduled the party thinking in hurting him to the City to the counterattack and hit of full. Shut backwards, the 'red devils' went out several times with danger to the against and could golear to the rest. Finally, only it was a 0-2, but finish them sufficing with this.
Marcos Rashford annotated the first of penalti after the review of the VAR. The City did not know what do in front of the gone and come of the United, that before the rest put 0-2 thanks to Martial. The French, superlative when it is fine, defined in front of Ederson a big played of all the team. The ones of Guardiola, powerless in the first 45 minutes, did not put to proof to Of Gea until happened the first half hour.
After a first time in which the ones of Solskjaer could finish marking two or three targets more, including a stick of Rashford, the City had to improve his image and trace back to follow having hopes in the Premier. But neither by those could the venues give him the turn to the marker. The United expected and followed contraatacando when it could, while the City, at least, yes began to have clear opportunities of goal.
After several attempts frustrated by Of Gea and the defence of the visitors, Otamendi hit to finish a good centre of corner of Mahrez to put the 1-2. They were missing something more than five minutes for the end of the crash and the 'citizens' still had some hope of traced back. At the end, the reaction remained in at all and the ones of Guardiola could not not even put him the fear in the body to the ones of Solskjaer, that carried a valuable victory of the Emirates.
The Liverpool won and is more leader
The defeat of the City is even more painful taking into account that the Liverpool won to the Bournemouth by 0-3. The ones of Jürgen Klopp are intractable and lead the Premier with 46 points and a brutal data of 15 victories and a tie. The goals of Oxlade-Chamberlain, Naby Keita and Mohammed Salah sank even more to the City, that is third with 32 points. The ones of Guardiola, now more than ever, will have to hold on to the Champions League so that his campaign was not a complete failure.
