MUN 0:2 MCI: Two tactical decisions made by Pep Guardiola as Man City won today.

Manchester City defeated Manchester United by 2 goals to nil in the English Premier League today.

Eric Bailly's own goal in the 7th minutes and Bernardo Silva's late first half strike sealed the victory for Pep Guardiola's side.

Pep Guardiola's side took a 2:0 lead in the first 45 minutes at Old Trafford.

Eric Bailly's own goal in the 7th gifted Manchester City the lead against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side. In the 45th minutes, Bernardo Silva doubled the visitor's advantage after he was assisted by Cancelo.

In the second half, Manchester United pushed further to get back into the game, but they failed to find the back of the net.

A False Nine.

Manchester city's star, Bernardo Silva was depolyed as a false nine and this development allowed the likes of Phil Foden and Bernardo Silva acres of space to threaten Manchester United's defensive set up.

Midfield Trio.

The midfield trio of Ikay Gundogan, Hernandez and Kevin De Bruyne controlled the midfield against Manchester United, as they restricted the host to just one shot on target.
