(Videos)Highlights Man City 0-2 Man Utd Player Ratings: Bruno And Shaw End City’s Unbeaten Run
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side produced another big-game performance against Manchester City for an unlikely victory. Man City 0-2 Man Utd
Manchester United were a thorn in Manchester City’s side once again as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s well-drilled team ended their long unbeaten run with a 2-0 victory at the Etihad.
An early Bruno Fernandes penalty and a clincher from Luke Shaw made sure United collected the points and, though City will still go on and win the league, it was a disappointing loss for a team who have played so well recently.
✔️ Luke Shaw: 7.5
Shaw hasn’t always been the most reliable player at United but this season he has been one of their best players and here he produced a defensive and offensive performance of distinction.
He was part of the United defensive unit that repelled City at every turn and his industry was rewarded when he scored the crucial second goal.
He took his time to steady himself on the edge of the area before snaking a shot through the legs of the defence and into Ederson’s far corner. Shaw may be making a late push to be in England’s squad for the Euros.
❌ Gabriel Jesus; 5.7
It was another game where literally nothing went right for Jesus.
He lost the ball in the opening seconds and in his effort to retrieve it, fouled Anthony Martial inside the area to gift them an early penalty. It was a needless tackle because there was defensive cover.
His only two efforts were blocked and failing to test the goalkeeper seems to be a running theme. With other players failing to step up to score, it highlighted Jesus’ problems in front of goal even more.
⭐ Dean Henderson: 7.6
The England international has been in for David de Gea of late and he had a solid if unspectacular outing here.
He didn’t make a real top-drawer save throughout the contest but did make saves in the contest and his positioning and ability to come and claim the ball was exemplary throughout the contest.
With City effectively camping out in the United half for much of the time, Henderson’s communication had to be perfect and it was as United saw out the victory.
