There was a recent controversy involving Bruno Fernandes and Pep Guardiola. Guardiola had claimed that Man City were not interested in bringing the Portuguese midfielder to Etihad. He said that the club is linked with millions of players and that it is the players’ agents who try to make up such stories.
In the 30th minute of the game, Bruno Fernandes took a clever free-kick to hit it past the Man City defensive wall. Anthony Martial was quick to volley past goalkeeper Ederson Moraes. Despite City’s efforts to equalise, they failed to capitalise on their chances.
In the injury time of the game, midfielder Scott McTominay scored the second goal of the night for Man United. Ederson Moraes committed a blunder as he rolled the ball towards McTominay who was hovering around the 35-yard area. The midfielder did not think twice before striking it past Ederson with the Brazilian leaving an unguarded net behind.
The victory means that Man United are fifth on the Premier League points table. Solskjaer’s side have bagged 45 points in 29 games. They will next play against LASK in the Round of 16 of the Europa League on Wednesday night (Thursday morning IST).
