Man­chester Uni­ted 2 Man­chester City 0, Old Traf­ford, Eng­lish Pre­mier Lea­gue, Mar­ch 8, 2020. Man­chester Uni­ted com­pleted the Pre­mier Lea­gue double over cross-to­wn rivals Man­chester City wi­th a 2-0 vic­tory at Old Traf­ford where the goals were sco­red by An­thony Mar­tial and Scott McTominay. 

Af­ter beat­ing Man­chester City by 2-0 at ho­me, Man­chester Uni­ted were now un­defeated in their last 10 ga­mes in all com­pet­i­tions. The Man­chester Reds, who came in­to this fix­ture on the back of a 3-0 FA Cup Fifth Ro­und win over Der­by Coun­ty at Pride Park, mo­ved ahead when a free-kick from Bruno Fer­nandes fou­nd An­thony Mar­tial who­se sub­sequent shot slipped thro­ugh the grasp of Eder­son and in­to the net on the ha­lf-hour. Man­chester Uni­ted con­tin­ued to main­tain the ma­jor­ity of pos­ses­sion and con­stantly threat­ened the de­fence of their op­pon­ents, on­ly to go in at the ha­lf-time break wi­th a nar­row 1-0 lead. Pep Guar­diola must have said a few words of wis­dom dur­ing the in­ter­val be­cause Man­chester City came more in­to pro­ceed­ings in the sec­ond frame, but the vis­it­ors were not able to cap­it­al­ise on their chances and were pun­ished ag­ain when the hap­less Eder­son ma­naged to throw the ball straight at the legs of Scott Mc­Tom­inay, who sent a long-ran­ge ef­fort in­to the goal wi­th just a few sec­onds left.
