Bruno Fernandes lights up Old Trafford as Manchester United secure derby win over City
The Red Devils completed the double over their rivals for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement
As the rain returned, pelting down over Old Trafford, the home crowd were up to applaud their new maestro. It will not be remarkable news that Bruno Fernandes once again delivered a decisive performance for Manchester United.
That he was luminary on an evening when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side completed a league double over Manchester City for the first time since Alex Ferguson retired, a feat last achieved in 2009-10, was more distinguishable.
The terraces thundered at the final whistle, the noise not only signifying the importance of the result, but the magnitude of the performance.
In keeping with the other episodes of this season’s Manchester derbies, there were shades of the unexpected – none more so than Pep Guardiola’s men being thoroughly outplayed.
The tone was set early on through Anthony Martial’s excellent defensive header inside his own six-yard box under pressure from Nicolas Otamendi. Fred followed up that unforeseen piece of play by nutmegging Oleksandr Zinchenko and the shredding of the script continued on the half-hour mark.
Outstanding defending. Well done Ole.
Bruno is to ole what cantano was to fergie!
The kind of ball Bruno played to Martial reminded me of Nani. He was underrated at United.
Hargreaves did a great impression of Giggsy there 😂
Daniel James needs to train up on his goal scoring skills
Can Giggsy in his prime beat Wan Bissaka? 🤔
We don't need Pogba, we have to sell him and bring in Sancho.
I think you need an editor for your vids..
Are they showing us highlights on DVD
This week it's Ole in, next week it's Ole out.
" coaches don't get enough credit"…the legend saying that..😀😀😀..poor Owen Hargreaves who got teased by giggsy…
I'm happy ole pointed out some errors that reds did in the game
1. Martial cud have squared it for bruno
2. The james could have squared it for bruno
If we want to improve, pogba should not be in this team. Please sell him
I thought when Manchester United was buying Bruno Fernandez they would have been held to ransom and have to pay about £100 million but seeing what type of player we got if we did have to pay £100 million he would have still been worth it
Hargreaves' Giggs impression at 4:32 is spot on lol
Fred was brilliant today should have had mom
Hargreaves deffo one of my fave pundits. Excellent football knowledge and very calm
If Pogbe leaves this team after today he is Raiolas bitch, him and Bruno with Mctominay would batter any midfield in the world.
Michael owen jumps on the band waggon when united win and does the same with liverpool the twat. Shit pundit
In terms of Martials goal, last week the pair tried the same play vs everton
Great passion from United, that's all we as fans ask for, credit to Ole. In the Mourinho era, it looked like no one wanted to be there which is the worst thing as a fan, now at least we can see we're trying. A few more quality signings from Ole and we'll be excellent. All his signings so far have been impressive, he's got the best out of Fred, Shaw and Martial and he gives youth a chance. Can't blame him for the poor start this season, he's rebuilding and the quality just wasn't there in some areas, Lingard as AM and Pereirra on the wing in particular.
hopefully no dip in form right similar to the psg game
deano next seasson
FRAUDIOLA BEATEN HOME & AWAY…..OGS ON THE WHEEL!!!!!!!!
I STRONGLY BELIEVE MAN UTD& CHELSEA ARE GOING TO WRECK HAVOC AFTER 1 OR 2 TRANSFERS
what does wan bissaka's physicality have to do with anything. he's clearly good at reading tackles, and staying calm in 1v1. don't reduce every black player to strength and physicality
