Man Utd 0-2 Man City player ratings

An Eric Bailly own goal and Bernardo Silva’s strike before half-time gave Manchester City a 2-0 win over city rivals United at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.

Both sides had opportunities in front of goal in the early stages, although it was City who broke the deadlock. Just seven minutes into proceedings, the early pressure told as Joao Cancelo’s low driven cross was turned into his own net by Bailly.

Pep Guardiola’s men knocked on the door throughout the first half, and eventually doubled their advantage just before the interval. Cancelo’s in-swinging cross drifted through the area without any reaction from the United back line, and Bernardo Silva swooped in at the far post to poke home from a narrow angle.

United reacted following the break, although City soon regained control of the match and never looked like relinquishing their grip on the derby. Ilkay Gundogan, Phil Foden and John Stones all had decent opportunities of adding a third, but Guardiola’s side were more than happy to settle for a 2-0 win.

The victory moves the Cityzens onto 23 points, six clear of United. Now, let’s see how the players rated in the derby…
