It is a fixture which showcases renowned enthusiasm amongst the supporters of the Manchester clubs, as Man United and Man City went up against each other in the Premier League tonight.

However, to the surprise of many, one team took quite a blow as only one set of fans were raised from their seats during the game with it being totally one-sided.

The much-awaited game ended 2-0 in the favour of United, overwhelming the supporters, as the home crowd bounced off with much energy. The two significant goals came off Anthony Martial and Scott McTominay, the latter during the final minutes of the eventful fixture.

Continuing the recent trend of the Old Trafford outfit, there’s absolutely no argument that Bruno Fernandes has a solid role in their derby triumph.

The Portuguese caught the opposition off guard with a free-kick, finding Martial who took the shot on his first touch, landing the ball inside the post, thus opening the scoring.

The result is unquestionably going to produce positive effects in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, with the victory being a league double over City for the first time in a decade.

Further, the Norwegian manager has now gone 10 games unbeaten with the Mancunian squad, fueling the supporters’ belief that their side indeed have made a comeback after struggling for a better part of the season.


The gaffer had failed to produce the Renaissance at Old Trafford which was expected of him when he was appointed as the head coach last summer. Although the supporters had seemingly lost faith in the 47-year-old last year, the United board was patient enough to see out the rest of the season.

And it seems as though it was a fine decision, as the club is certainly enjoying more triumph lately. Plus the English side look notably aggressive in the FA Cup as well, in which they still maintain the momentum, suggesting a valid likelihood of them seizing the silverware this time.
