Manchester City have reclaimed derby bragging rights from Manchester United this weekend as Pep Guardiola’s side swept to a 2-0 win at Old Trafford.

That result means the growing pressure now continues to rise on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the hosts capitulated in the Mancunian rain as Manchester United and Manchester City battled it out.

United looked on the back foot from the start in this one as Eric Bailly’s disastrous own goal put them 1-0 down inside the first ten minutes.

However, Solskjaer’s side did look to force a response with Cristiano Ronaldo testing Ederson, but City soon retook control.

United stopper David De Gea was called into action to deny Gabriel Jesus and Joao Cancelo before Bernardo Silva popped up to force home Cancelo’s cross in added time.

A 2-0 lead effectively ended the contest in the second 45 but Pep’s men continued to dominate after the restart with the woodwork denying Phil Foden and Ilkay Gundogan.
