Game Report

Highlights

Manchester City reaffirmed their dominance over bitter rivals Manchester United with a convincing and well deserved 3-1 home victory at the Etihad Stadium. David Silva gave the hosts a first half lead and Sergio Aguero doubled that advantage straight after the restart. Anthony Martial gave United a glimmer of hope with a goal back from the penalty spot but Ilkay Gundogan came off the bench to finish off an incredible passing move.

Detail

Manchester United made the short trip to the Etihad Stadium without Paul Pogba after the influential midfielder picked up an injury against former club Juventus in midweek. Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez were also left on the bench as Jose Mourinho named a rather defensive looking line-up with the hope of containing the Premier League champions.

Manchester City didn't seem overly concerned by what was in front of them as they dominated the early stages of the game and looked capable of opening up their rivals at will. It didn't take long for the opening goal to arrive as Bernardo Silva hooked Raheem Sterling's delivery back across goal and David Silva finished it off.

After a couple more shaky moments, the visitors seemed as though they'd started to settle into the game towards the end of the first half. Indeed, they restricted City to very few genuine chances after the opening goal and there was still hope for Mourinho's men going into the second half.

All United's hard work to keep the deficit at one goal going into half-time was ruined just moments after the restart. Jesse Lingard took a poor touch in midfield and was robbed by the quietly efficient Fernandinho who set off a counter-attack. Aguero played a lovely give-and-go with Riyad Mahrez before rifling the ball past David De Gea from a narrow angle.

Mourinho had turned recent games around with his substitutions, especially in Turin on Wednesday night, and it looked like he could be on the cards to repeat the trick. Lukaku was brought off the bench and immediately won a penalty after being tripped by Ederson. Martial slotted in the spot-kick and suddenly it was game on.

Manchester City fans would've been having unwanted flashbacks to this fixture from last season where United came back from 2-0 down to win 3-2 and delayed their title party but there was to be no repeat this time. Pep Guardiola's men regained control of the contest the only way they know how - with relentless possession - and a stunning 44 pass move ended with Gundogan finishing expertly in front of goal.

Summary

Despite a slight scare in the second half, Manchester City were simply far superior to their local rivals on the day and thoroughly deserved to claim the three points. It's another massive box ticked in their bid to retain the Premier League title. Manchester United are now 12 points behind them and have no realistic chance of even challenging this season. There is some sympathy for the Red Devils who were missing an important player like Pogba and had already endured two tough away games in just over a week. However, their supporters will be concerned by the sheer gulf in quality between the two sides on the day.
