Manchester United welcomed rivals Manchester City to Old Trafford in a re-run of last month’s derby clash on Wednesday evening. Pep Guardiola’s men emerged victorious then, beating United 2-1, but Jose Mourinho was out for a convincing victory as he needed to inflict revenge on his old adversary and he did, as united won 1-0.
Pep Guardiola earlier boasted that he will treat the match as a final…Alas!
But like Mourinho, Guardiola has just as much reason to win. His side had been without a victory in five which extended to six as City fell short at Old Trafford – an unwelcome record for the Catalan.
