Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson Moraes has been on the receiving end of criticism since his disastrous performance in the Manchester derby. The Brazilian goalkeeper displayed poor skills between the sticks against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, conceding five goals in four derby games this season. This was Man City's third Manchester derby defeat in all competitions this campaign.
In the 30th minute of the game, Bruno Fernandes took a free-kick to hit it past the Man City defensive wall. Anthony Martial was quick to hit a volley past goalkeeper Ederson Moraes who failed to keep Martial's effort out. This led to intense criticism from Man City fans. Despite Man City’s efforts to equalise, they failed to score at Old Trafford on the night.

In 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.
