Manchester City won Manchester United 2-0 at Old trafford. Eric Bailly scored an own goal while Bernando Silva made it 2-0 at the late minutes of the first half.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer started the game with the 3-5-2 formation. The visitors pressured Manchester United so well until the second half when Solskjaer implemented the 4-4-2 formation.

Solskjaer substituted Eric Bailly with Jadon Sancho in the second half. The game changed a little bit because Manchester United started creating chances unlike it was in the first half.

Manchester United would have played better if Solskjaer started the game with 4-4-2. Donny Van de Beek also got some minutes in the second half, Fred got substituted and paved way for him.

Kevin De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva really tormented Manutd's defence so well. I think Solskjaer should have started the game with 4-4-2 instead of 3-5-2.
