Man City will be disappointed to see the curtain down on their 21-game winning streak, especially at their own patch at the hands of their neighbours.
Bruno Fernandes’ opening goal from the penalty spot after Gabriel Jesus fouled Anthony Martial meant the Sky Blues were trailing for the first time in 19 Premier Leagues games.
The urgency to get back to their preferred scoreline and subsequent failure to do so led to an increase in frustration amongst the City camp.
Nonetheless, the two managers appeared to resolve the matter instantly with a fist-bump.

More than the spat at the Etihad, the Spaniard will be bothered with his individual record against the Norwegian. Man City have lost three times in five league meetings against the Solskjaer led United.
However, despite all the head-to-head stats, the most important number of all – an eleven-point gap over second-placed United – is in the favour of the former Barcelona boss.
