Man United vs Man City LIVE!

Premier League champions Manchester City cruised to a 2-0 win over struggling Manchester United in their derby at Old Trafford on Saturday.

City were handed an ideal start, going ahead in the seventh minute with an own goal from United defender Eric Bailly, who stretched out a leg but turned a low Joao Cancelo cross into his own net.

United, shaky at the back despite playing a three-man central defence, relied on goalkeeper David De Gea to keep them in the game as the Spaniard made a series of saves.

But just before the break, Pep Guardiola’s side profited from more woeful United defending with Luke Shaw inexplicably leaving a Cancelo cross deep to the back post, allowing Bernardo Silva to sneak in and poke a shot goalward that crept past De Gea.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s United are now winless in their last four home league games, losing three of them. City are second, two point behind leaders Chelsea who host Burnley later on Saturday.

Recap this big derby win for Manchester City with our match report.

Roy Keane was not happy with his old club’s commitment today

15:17 , Marc Mayo

15:06 , Marc Mayo

The United manager insists he is not on borrowed time when pressed on his future, with constant communication with the board.

15:02 , Marc Mayo

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is up.

He tells Sky Sports: “It’s was going to be a difficult game anyway but going 1-0 down was hard.

“David De Gea kept us in the game then they scored the goal they always score, Cancelo cuts inside... it shouldn’t happen.

“Some praise has got to go to City as well but we were not at our level, standards need to be raised.”

14:59 , Marc Mayo

Pep Guardiola promises “more to come” in his chat with Sky Sports.

He adds: “A solid performance, a good game and a deserved victory.”

Pausing to mute his ringing phone, he discusses his team’s inability to grab a third: “It’s ok, we are demanding and we have very high standards. But I’m very pleased, this was the game we needed.”

14:50 , Marc Mayo

Catch our player ratings from today’s derby - with Fernandes and McTominay in for some low scores...

14:44 , Marc Mayo

Notch another lunchtime win for Manchester City.

Pep Guardiola’s men have now scored in every 12.30pm Saturday fixture they’ve had in the league since it became a regular game in 2016-17. That’s 24 games.

14:39 , Marc Mayo

Roy Keane delivers his verdict on the game.

He tells Sky Sports: “They toyed with United, really so poor, it’s men vs boys, United are so off it’s unbelievable.

“The goal at half-time has killed it, it’s game over and United... just so poor. Fred, McTominay - these players just aren’t good enough for United.

“I wasn’t shocked at Bailly’s own goal, he’s erratic.”

14:35 , Marc Mayo

Phil Foden on Sky Sports.

He says: “I think we had the game of our lives today. We dominated from start to finish.

“We knew we could exploit the space in behind, we picked the right times to do it and they found me a few times in behind. On another day I would have taken my chances.”


14:33 , Marc Mayo

That is now 14 home games in a row for Manchester United without a clean sheet.

That matches a run between September 1954 and February 1955 - with only a 21-game spell between April 1958 and March 1959 longer in the club’s history.

14:30 , Marc Mayo

Full time! Man Utd 0-2 Man City

14:24 , Marc Mayo

Done and dusted long ago, City bolster their title bid with a vital victory in the derby!

United are making a top-four finish a difficult task...

14:23 , Marc Mayo

90+3 mins: United are allowed the ball to see out the match. Very kind of their neighbours.

14:20 , Marc Mayo

90 mins: Petulant from Fernandes and Ronaldo, both laying angry tackles on De Bruyne with the striker booked.

Four minutes added on.

14:18 , Marc Mayo

88 mins: Jesus wants a penalty as Telles nudges the ball into touch. The referee rightly points for a corner.

14:16 , Marc Mayo

86 mins: Close!

Stones spins in the area from a corner and almost buries the third! McTominay completely lifeless as the ball bounced across him before reaching his opponent.

14:15 , Marc Mayo

85 mins: City very much on top and very much in the mood for a third.

14:13 , Marc Mayo

83 mins: Chants of “Ole’s at the wheel” and “Ole give us a wave” - from the away end. Suffice to say he does not respond.

14:11 , Marc Mayo

81 mins: Post!

Foden is through on his left foot and his effort kisses the far-post. That could have been that.

14:09 , Marc Mayo

79 mins: United awakening with a couple of crosses into the box, before Telles lets a ball go out for a throw and has it awarded against him.

Van de Beek is on for Fred - to huge (perhaps ironic) cheers from Old Trafford.

14:08 , Marc Mayo

78 mins: Just a sense of how little Guardiola cares for convention: when defending, City are in a 4-4-2 with Jesus on the right and Silva the highest up alongside De Bruyne. And it works!

14:06 , Marc Mayo

76 mins: Chance!

De Bruyne shins a far-post volley wide, Gundogan having put the ball in after Cancelo’s deflected shot fell kindly.

A City third feels more likely than a United first.

14:04 , Marc Mayo

75 mins: A very muted Old Trafford is watching City play keep ball.

14:02 , Marc Mayo

72 mins: Shaw has called for the physio again and that will be that for his game, Telles will come on as a concussion sub - so United still have one remaining.

14:00 , Marc Mayo

70 mins: Into the final 20 minutes. United have had only one shot, which was off target, this half.

Can the Red Devils spark a comeback?

13:59 , Marc Mayo

69 mins: Rodri leaps over Shaw while competing fairly for the ball and it cleaned out the England man, but he will play on despite the blow to the head.

13:58 , Marc Mayo

68 mins: Delay now as Shaw receives treatment, Telles is warming up.

13:56 , Marc Mayo

66 mins: A really good chance for Gundogan to run at goal after a lengthy passing move, yet his touch is very poor and the German fires into the side netting while chasing the ball down.

Rashford replaces Greenwood for United’s second change.

13:54 , Marc Mayo

63 mins: A long spell on the ball for the away team - United are looking tired in chasing them down.

13:52 , Marc Mayo

61 mins: Gundogan reaches a low cross from Foden and glances his shot wide at the near-post, via a block from Lindelof.

The corner is cleared.

13:49 , Marc Mayo

59 mins: The Stretford End showing a bit of life in the past few minutes and Greenwood drives a shot from distance wide.

A goal would shake this one right up.

13:47 , Marc Mayo

57 mins: Very nice from Sancho to win the ball and kickstart a counter, he wants it back from Ronaldo but the veteran holds onto the ball and shimmies Silva to earn a free-kick.

That’s also a yellow card for Silva, who was fully beat as he slid in.

13:43 , Marc Mayo

54 mins: De Bruyne leads a fresh breakaway and Gundogan, after a pass was too hot from Foden, does well to catch up and cross to the far-post. Nobody is there and the visitors settle back into possession.

13:43 , Marc Mayo

53 mins: Walker knocks the ball out for Fernandes with the playmaker on his haunches. He plays on but is holding his side after racing to catch out Ederson.

13:40 , Marc Mayo

51 mins: A slow start to the second-half with City comfortable and United visibly looking for answers. There doesn’t look to be a huge gameplan moving forward for the hosts.

13:38 , Marc Mayo

48 mins: Cancelo fouls Greenwood after leaving a shoulder on the striker as he raced past him. A booking for the full-back.

Fernandes’ free-kick is decent but lacking a finish.

13:36 , Marc Mayo

47 mins: Wisely, City just sit on the ball early on to quieten the home crowd back down.

Second-half! Man Utd 0-2 Man City

13:35 , Marc Mayo

Sancho is on for Bailly as Solskjaer abandons the back-three for the second time in just a few days (albeit in different circumstances).

Can the ex-City winger hit back against his old club?

Here is that second goal...

13:30 , Marc Mayo

13:27 , Marc Mayo

Sky Sports pundit and ex-Manchester United captain Roy Keane says “I give up” analysing Luke Shaw’s defending for that second goal. He does just let the ball go, allowing Silva to nip in.

Keane says his old team need “something drastic” to get back in this game.

13:24 , Marc Mayo

The stats don’t always tell the whole story - but they do in this one.

City ahead ten shots to three, five to one on target. They’ve had 68 per cent of possession to 32, completing 90 per cent of their passes to United’s 80 per cent.

Luke Shaw is also the only United player to have made a key pass - City have produced nine.

Recap the opener

13:20 , Marc Mayo

Half-time! Man Utd 0-2 Man City

13:20 , Marc Mayo

A bit of booing from a stunned Old Trafford as Michael Oliver blows his whistle.

An absolute nightmare end to the half for the hosts.

13:19 , Marc Mayo

45+1 mins: That could well be the game. Cancelo’s floated ball is let go by the defenders and Silva pokes it goalwards, with De Gea flapping at the shot as it bounces over the line!

GOAL! Man Utd 0-2 Man City | Silva

13:17 , Marc Mayo

44 mins: Silva nudges it home at the far post!

13:14 , Marc Mayo

42 mins: It’s the visitors making a couple of errors in possession now. A pass from Greenwood that goes straight into touch underlines United’s difficulty in making hay.

13:13 , Marc Mayo

40 mins: Ronaldo offside after a through ball from Wan-Bissaka. He drives his effort at Ederson anyway, tellingly the ball across the six-yard box may have been better - not like he was ever going to take that.

13:11 , Marc Mayo

38 mins: We’ve gone from boiling to simmering as City’s attacks subside. Good news for United, who may still fancy an equaliser before the break.

13:07 , Marc Mayo

35 mins: De Gea denies Cancelo again... That United momentum has ceased to exist.

13:06 , Marc Mayo

34 mins: Save!

De Bruyne curls a ball across the face of goal from a standing start and De Gea is equal to it. The Spaniard is keeping his team in it.

13:05 , Marc Mayo

33 mins: Close!

Foden lashes another cross in and Lindelof can’t react in time to stop his touch towards goal. De Gea saves with his feet.

13:05 , Marc Mayo

32 mins: Jesus, constantly feinting to shoot from miles out, picks up a loose ball 40 yards from goal and now it’s City resuming their possession spells.

13:02 , Marc Mayo

30 mins: Another save... Cancelo takes aim from the corner and De Gea palms it up and over.

The following corner heads for the Portuguese defender in the D again, but his volley is wayward.

13:01 , Marc Mayo

30 mins: Close!

United survive a huge chance! Foden races free and finds De Bruyne, whose shot is well saved. Jesus turns the ball back towards goal and De Gea heroically denies the Brazilian!

13:00 , Marc Mayo

29 mins: United began a bit of a press too which is less successful as their neighbours can play piggy in the middle and knock it around them with ease.

12:59 , Marc Mayo

27 mins: Some proper game management from United here, which they didn’t show against Liverpool.

Not only has it pushed them up the pitch in search of an equaliser, it’s calmed City’s threat for the time being.

12:58 , Marc Mayo

26 mins: Save!

Ronaldo fires a volley at goal that Ederson can parry - it was a little bit too close to him - and Greenwood can’t react quick enough on the rebound.

12:57 , Marc Mayo

25 mins: More patience from the home team, pushing City back nicely.

12:55 , Marc Mayo

22 mins: Smarter from the hosts as they put a foot on the ball in their opponent’s half - and then Wan-Bissaka gives it away.

City burst and win a corner, which United deal with.

12:53 , Marc Mayo

21 mins: Ronaldo is offside from a counter ball that was a little too hasty. United are sticking to their game plan, for now.

12:51 , Marc Mayo

18 mins: A fresh move breaks down as De Bruyne overhits his pass as he tries to snap a low one through to Foden.

From the goal kick, United immediately lose possession.

12:49 , Marc Mayo

16 mins: Just the 74 per cent possession for the visitors. Not even needed a shot on target.

12:47 , Marc Mayo

14 mins: Foden nearly latches onto a lofted De Bruyne cross.

City are pulling the strings with both short, neat spells and direct, forthright moves. Very hard to defend against.

12:44 , Marc Mayo

12 mins: It’s still all City, that goal hasn’t brought United out of their shell.

Fernandes gives the ball away to Foden in a bad spot but the danger subsides for the moment.

12:42 , Marc Mayo

10 mins: That’ll be one for the No Context Eric Bailly Twitter account...

Safe to say a fit Varane would have meant the Ivorian being on the bench today.

12:41 , Marc Mayo

8 mins: Gundogan couldn’t finish a perfect cross from Walker and Cancelo flies another great ball back in, and Bailly mangles his clearance. It flies past De Gea! City lead.

GOAL! Man United 0-1 Man City | Bailly OG

12:39 , Marc Mayo

7 mins: Own goal! Bailly clips the cross in at the near-post!

12:38 , Marc Mayo

6 mins: Close!

Almost that first set-piece goal of the season for United!

Jesus fouls Ronaldo and Maguire meets the ball in well, but doesn’t get enough on his glancing header and it drifts wide.

12:36 , Marc Mayo

5 mins: All City so far and Walker hits a quick ball into Jesus which Maguire and Shaw contend with.

The hosts look happy to sit deep and counter.

12:35 , Marc Mayo

3 mins: Silva scoops the first effort of the game over the bar, cutting inside from the edge of the area.

A big cheer from the Stretford End at that.

12:33 , Marc Mayo

1 min: De Bruyne and Silva appear to be rotating between the midfield and central striker’s spot with Jesus on the right wing and Foden left for City.


12:30 , Marc Mayo

After a minute’s applause for Walter Smith and next weekend’s Remembrance Sunday, the Manchester derby is underway.

12:27 , Marc Mayo

The teams are out! A big atmosphere at Old Trafford for this lunchtime clash...


12:25 , Marc Mayo

TV channel: The game will be broadcast on Sky Sports Main Event, Sky Sports Premier League and Sky Sports Ultra HD.

Live stream: Sky Sports subscribers will be able to watch the match on the Sky Go App.

Will a set-piece decide today’s game? It would upset the stats if so...

United are the only Premier League team yet to score from a set play this season whereas City are one of only two yet to concede from a set play.

12:15 , Marc Mayo

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reckons form will go out the window for today’s game with United on a run of two draws, two wins and two defeats in their last six.

City, meanwhile, have won four and lost two.

The manager told the club website: “I think so.

“It’s been said a lot of times that expression, but I think it is actually true. It’s a one-off game, a derby and anything can happen in these types of games.

“For us, we’ve picked up form since the last time we were at home and hopefully that can continue. We treat it as a derby and as the most important game in our lives.”

12:09 , Marc Mayo

12:07 , Marc Mayo

Pep Guardiola has told Man City fans not to expect a repeat of Liverpool’s 5-0 romp past United.

“We do not have the quality to play like Liverpool play so we play a different way,” he said.

“Football is not ‘copy paste’. After this defeat they changed the setup [to 3-5-2] against Tottenham and it worked, and kept it against Atalanta, but after they got an injury to Raphaël Varane they changed back to a four. We will see on Saturday what they will do.”

11:51 , Marc Mayo

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has provided an update on Edinson Cavani and Marcus Rashford’s fitness.

He says: “We’ve had a couple of issues since Italy, Edi has been one of them, Marcus was only cleared this morning, luckily he can be on the bench and hopefully if he needs to he can come on.”

11:46 , Marc Mayo

11:39 , Marc Mayo

So, Edinson Cavani does miss out for United with what appears to be an injury.

No such issue for Jack Grealish though, who is nonetheless back on the bench for City despite his record-breaking summer move.

Here is the visitors’ team news...

11:34 , Marc Mayo

Man City XI: Ederson; Walker, Stones, Dias, Cancelo; Silva, Rodri, Gundogan; Jesus, Foden, De Bruyne.

Subs: Steffen, Carson, Ake, Fernandinho, Zinchenko, Grealish, Mahrez, Sterling, Palmer.

How the hosts line up...

11:32 , Marc Mayo

Man United XI: De Gea; Bailly, Maguire, Lindelof; Wan-Bissaka, McTominay, Fred, Shaw; Fernandes; Ronaldo, Greenwood.

Subs: Henderson, Telles, Matic, Dalot, Martial, Van de Beek, Sancho, Lingard, Rashford.

The players are arriving...

11:19 , Marc Mayo

11:14 , Marc Mayo

Will Edinson Cavani be fit for Manchester United?

The Uruguayan forward was left out of his country’s squad for this month’s games for “medical reasons” and he did not appear at his club’s pre-game hotel meet.Team news is expected at 11.30am...

The Evening Standard prediction

11:02 , Marc Mayo

With United needing to prove they can at least challenge the leading sides in Europe and City needing to ensure they don’t lose more ground in the Premier League title race, expect a cagey affair.

1-1 draw.

10:53 , Marc Mayo

Raphael Varane will miss around a month’s worth of action which, along with a recent knock for Victor Lindelof, seriously undermines any plans Solskjaer might have for potentially playing a back three.

Paul Pogba, meanwhile, remains suspended following his red card against Liverpool.

For City, Ferran Torres remains the only genuine injury absence, although Aymeric Laporte’s red card against Crystal Palace rules him out.

10:41 , Marc Mayo

Predicted Man United XI: De Gea; Bailly, Maguire, Lindelof; Wan-Bissaka, McTominay, Fred, Shaw; Fernandes, Ronaldo, Cavani.

Predicted Man City XI: Ederson; Cancelo, Stones, Dias, Zinchenko; De Bruyne, Rodri, Silva; Jesus, Foden, Grealish.
