Man City make EPL history with 2-0 Man Utd win

Man United 0-2 Man City: Guardiola's side make Premier League history with Old Trafford win

November 6, 2021 By Ali M.
An Eric Bailly own goal and a strike from Bernardo Silva helped the Cityzens set an excellent English top-flight record.

Man City compiled Solskjaer's misery on Saturday, with Guardiola's men marching to a convincing and dominant victory over Man United in Matchweek 11's highly-anticipated Manchester Derby.

The Cityzens made the trip to Old Trafford in Saturday's early kick-off, going on the hunt for a crucial win in order to bounce back from last weekend's upsetting 2-0 loss at home to Crystal Palace. From the first whistle, Foden and Co. were keen on asserting their dominance, and they did, with the opening goal coming swiftly from the visitors, albeit under a fortunate circumstance.

Eric Bailly, who returned to the lineup in place of the injured Rapael Varane, scored a calamitous own goal to give Man City the lead. Guardiola's men came knocking for their second several times but were forced to wait until the stroke of half-time, with Bernardo Silva profiting from poor defending and goalkeeping to double his side's lead.

From then on, the defending champions managed the game perfectly, maintaining possession and nullifying the opposition's deadly attackers. This 2-0 victory not only helped Man City maintain the pressure on league leaders Chelsea, but it also saw the Manchester giants make Premier League history.

Saturday's triuimph was their eighth away Manchester Derby win at Old Trafford, a feat no other club has managed. Additionally, Bernardo Silva also reached a lovely individual feat as his first-half goal was his third against the Red Devils, all of which came at the Theatre of Dreams. The Portuguese talent has only netted more goals against Burnley (four).

Things were not as rosy for the home side as Solskjaer's men were booed off the pitch at full-time. Calls for the Norwegian to be sacked have increased given that he has only won three of Man United's last nine fixtures. Unfortunately, Antonio Conte, who was heavily linked with the Old Trafford job after the 5-0 loss to Liverpool, has since joined Tottenham and is thus no longer available, leaving the 20-time Premier League champions with fewer options.
