Man United 2 Man City 0
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.
