As it is hoped, the game started with a hurricane of Man City attacks. Bernardo Silva and Fernandinho were extremely threatened, but near the gate.
Finally, the guests reached their point and 12 minutes David Silva turned the ball into Man United gate.
After a cold shower, Man United, and in the middle of the first half, the game has flattened. However, without the "red devils" played by Romulus Lukacs, they are still sudden during the last stages of the attacks.

Three of the last final four of the "red devils" reach the first lost goal. This also happened in the recent Championship League competition where Manchester United was controversial for eleven Turin Juventus. Jose Mourinho said he wanted to change this trend before Manchester Derby – to try to make the first goal.
"If we continue to lose out on the first, the day comes when the success disappears and can not escape. We have started the game better," said J.Mourinho.
Manchester City's derby wins six consecutive games – and in each of these games, Pepo Guardiola's first goalkeeper is beaten. Indeed, in this series of wins, Man City, in general, had lost one goal only, and even 23 left the opponents.
It is easy to understand that Caer Goch Etihad of the Red Guard faces special challenges.
Indeed, Man City won one of the last four (W1 D1 L2) and only two of the last eight (W2 D2 L4) city derby, and the last season of a captain 2: 3 in their squad.
"Last year we lost, but each game is a new story and a separate chapter in the book. We find out how strong Manchester United is. When they influence the square and make promises – they win in easy. Even when you feel that you are managing the game, Manchester United can be punished seriously, "said P. Guardiola with respect to & # 39; r competitors.
However, it is clear that Man United is busy this season. In the last 10 games, Man United has only kept the door dry, and in the Premier League there is still a lot to fight the AFC Bournemouth, Watford or Everton, not their traditional competitors.
