  • 26 Apr
    Manchester City maintained their perfect start to the season with a 2-1 victory over United in the Manchester derby at Old Trafford thanks to goals from Kevin de Bruyne and Kelechi Iheanacho.Zlatan Ibrahimovic cut Citys lead in half but it wasnt enough as Pep Guardiola got one over on old rival Jose Mourinho once again. City were by far the better side in the opening half and De Bruyne was instrumental in both goals, nicking the ball away from Daley Blind before slotting past David de Gea for the first.De Bruyne then displayed surreal skill to turn two United players inside out before seeing his shot cannon off the post, allowing Iheanacho to tap home.A mistake from Claudio Bravo saw Ibrahimovic volley home just before the half. United came out the better side in the second half mainly thanks to Marcus Rashfords introduction, but they couldnt find a winner for all of their chances.City almost ended the game as a contest on 75 minutes when De Bruyne smacked the post before Uniteds late barrage of shots, the best of which fell to Wayne Rooney, but John Stones managed to deal with the threats.City are on top of the table with 12 points while United sit tied for second alongside Chelsea, who face Swansea City on Sunday.
