PREMIER LEAGUE | Manchester United 0 Manchester City 2 | Manchester United Suffer A New Reality Check Against City

The humiliation suffered against Liverpool was of no use to Manchester United. Solskjaer's men were once again a toy at the hands of a vastly superior rival, simply another soccer link. Guardiola's Manchester City taught a lesson in the derby, Pep's biggest showing at Old Trafford since coaching in the Premier League.

Cancelo returned to be the executing arm, with two assists, and Bailly (own) and Bernardo Silva scored the goals. De Gea avoided a tragedy before the break. And while City pitched as they pleased, taking their foot off the gas in the second half, Solskjaer kept losing arguments that keep him on the bench at the Theater of Dreams.

United barely left their field in the first half. Cristiano Ronaldo, his spearhead, registered an average location on his own pitch. Guardiola resigned from Grealish to, a hallmark, reinforce himself with more midfielders. Bernardo Silva and De Bruyne alternated the false nine, with Foden and Gabriel at the extremes.

Solskjaer protected himself with three centrals, who did not even know who to mark and when they found out, they had already put the first in their goal. Eric Bailly, Ole's emergency solution, deflected a tight cross from Cancelo on eight minutes.

The dream start of a Manchester City that from there sodomized its neighbors. The only local blow was given by Cristiano Ronaldo, with a volley in the 25th minute that Ederson repelled. It was the only shot on local goal of the afternoon. What followed was a response from City, with a star appearance from De Gea . The Spanish goalkeeper scored four clear goals against Manchester City : Gabriel Jesus, Cancelo, De Bruyne and Gündogan. An exhibition that ended on the brink of halftime, when Bernardo Silva found a red carpet behind Shaw to double the advantage. Again, a gift from Cancelo.

The second half did not change the local nonsense. Solskjaer gave entry to Sancho, unpublished. Like Bruno Fernandes, Rashford or Greenwood. And the City continued to his. Gündogan, Foden or Stones could have sentenced and calmed down a hyperactive and suffering Pep in the band. It is the only reproach that can remain: not having opened a historical wound. The final 0-2 underestimates the sidereal distance between the two sides of Manchester, the gray city that tonight will sleep dyed in azure blue.
