– I could have scored more goals, Zlatan said after the game.
BLIND'S MISTAKE GAVE MAN CITY THE LEAD
Manchester City started the game better and controlled the actions up until the 15th minute when they scored the opener. A long ball was touched by Iheanacho to De Bruyne, who put out his just before Blind, who should have fallen back. De Bruyne got open with De Gea and placed the ball into the net. 0-1 to Manchester City.
United had a terrible half and in the 36th minute City extended the lead to 0-2. De Bruyne stepped into the penalty box and shot a left shot which hit the post and out to an at first seemingly offside-standing Iheanacho who put the ball in the back of the net. The replay showed that the linesman had it right. 0-2 to Manchester City.
ZLATAN GAVE UNITED HOPE BEFORE HALFTIME
Everything looked grim until the 42nd minute when Zlayan stepped into the action. Claudio Bravo came out and made a mistake, dropping the ball to Zlatan who instinctively picked it up and skillfully shot the ball into the net with his right. 1-2 at halftime.
CITY TOO STRONG
Manchester United came out as a completely different team in the second. Mourinho took off the poor wingers Mkhitaryan and Lingard and put on Rashford and Herrera. They started putting alot higher pressure and took over the game. The second half was insanely intense and physical and Man Utd pushed like crazy for the win but failed to score, the game ended 1-2 to Manchester City.
