Four things to note as Man City extend Manchester United's misery 2

Manchester City extended the the recent poor run of form of their rivals with a commanding 2 nil victiry at old Trafford.

An own for Eric Bailly and poorly defended ball late in the first half gave City another victory at Old Trafford – their fourth in the last six visits.

Manchester United only had four touches in Manchester City’s half and they had just a goal on target which came via Ronaldo’s effort in the box.

Manchester City put the defeat at home to Crystal Palace behind them as they earned a deserved victory at Old Trafford.

Here are four things to note;

  • Manchester City have won eight away Premier League matches at Old Trafford against Manchester United, more than any other side in Premier League history.
  • Manchester United are now without a clean sheet in their last 14 home games in all competitions – they’ve only had one longer run in their entire history without a home clean sheet, a 21-game run between April 1958 and March 1959.
  • Eric Bailly is the first Manchester United player to score an own goal in the Manchester derby in the Premier League.
  • All three of Bernardo Silva’s goals against Manchester United for Manchester City have come at Old Trafford, scoring in three of his last four appearances there – he has only netted more goals against Burnley (four) in his time at Man City. Favoured.
