The Derby finally happened and it was labelled “boring” because both teams failed to find the net in the game. Manchester United hosted Manchester City at old trafford and the fans anticipated a great game filled with tons of attacking football and goals but unfortunately, things didn’t go as planned.
After great defensive play from City and Control from Manchester United, the “boring” game ended goalless. Man City fans were pleased with the result because they actually came to defend considering the fact that Manuel Pellegrini used two defensive midfielders and later switched to five defenders.
United fans on twitter praised Anthony Martial’s brilliance and also hailed the defense especially Rojo, Valencia and Schneiderlin, who was one of our key performers. The fans were displeased with Rooney’s performance and revealed their frustration, some fans thought he was the main culprit of the uneventful Derby.
Let’s see their reactions, Culled from twitter :
