Manchester: Shades of red in a blue territory! Manchester United ended Manchester City’s 21-game winning run defeating them 2-0 at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday and continue with their unbeaten away record in the English Premier League.

The Manchester Derby has always been the mouth-watering fixture in English football and every football fan across the world has been waiting for this match on Sunday. City were the clear favourites coming to the match but United’s away record was a threat for them.

The match started with a bang as United was awarded a penalty in the 30th second after Gabriel Jesus pulled down Anthony Martial inside the box. Bruno Fernandes stepped in to take an early lead.

City came up with everything in their store after that but they just missed the cutting edge at the top. They did get some opportunities but were well blocked by the United defence. In the second half United scored again and this time it was Luke Shaw.
