The Manchester derby ended in a stalemate (0-0) after 90 minutes, where the tactics prevailed over the personal inspiration of the stars of the two teams.
United and City drew 0-0 at Old Trafford. The historic and attractive Manchester derby, the 183rd, had a lack of quality and thrill, with two teams whose priority was not to concede chances to their opponents. Neither team risked the result, and just attempted De Gea and Ederson’s goal when the spaces appeared in the defences.

Juan Mata, who assisted Rashford last week against West Ham, had no minutes against Guardiola’s team. After today’s derby, Manchester United has 20 points, close to the positions that give access to European competitions. Once the group stage of the Champions League is over, the Premier will return in mid-week. Next Thursday, United will visit Sheffield United.
