Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be a relived man tonight after his side held on to secure 0-0 draw with Manchester City.

Neither side were really able to impose themselves on the night at Old Trafford, but the under-pressure Norwegian will be relieved to have snatched a point.

City did carve out the only real chance of the first 45 as Riyad Mahrez missed a perfect chance to put them in front on 35 minutes.

Gabriel Jesus led the City charge from half way and he slipped in Mahrez inside the box.

But his poor effort was easily blocked by David De Gea with Kevin De Bruyne lashing over from the rebound.

United looked to start the second half with a bit more purpose and Marcus Rashford looked to have won a clear penalty just after restart.

The England man went down under a late challenge from Kyle Walker, but referee Michael Oliver went back on his original call after VAR ruled offside against Rashford.

City managed to wrestle some control back from the hosts as the second half wore as Harry Maguire produced a game winning block to deny De Bruyne.

United almost eked out a late winner with eight minutes left, but Bruno Fernandes rushed his weak strike and Ederson gobbled it up

Full Time at Old Trafford it’s Manchester United 0 Manchester City 0
