Man City 0-2 Man Utd: City finally beaten by Utd

Manchester United stun Manchester City with a derby day win at the Etihad Stadium thanks to a Bruno Fernandes penalty and Luke Shaw strike, which closes the gap at the top of the Premier League to 11 points.

Manchester United ended Manchester City’s 28-game unbeaten run with a shock 2-0 victory at the Etihad on Sunday, with early goals in each half from Bruno Fernandes and Luke Shaw stunning Pep Guardiola’s Premier League leaders.

United have been criticised for their lack of intent in these big fixtures this season but they were ahead inside two minutes thanks to a Bruno Fernandes penalty, after Gabriel Jesus had clumsily fouled Anthony Martial just 34 seconds in.

City – who had won their last 21 on the spin – assumed control of possession after that and hit the bar through Rodri at the start of the second half but moments later, Shaw drove forwards and finished the move he started to put Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side on course for a big derby win.

The title remains seemingly out of reach for United, with City’s lead shorn to a still-handsome 11 points with 10 games to play, but they took an important step towards Champions League qualification and laid down a marker with this statement win.
