City edge United in Old Trafford thriller

All eyes were on Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon as the Manchester derby kicked off the fourth round of fixtures for the Premier League.

United were complacent in the first half of the encounter which saw them go down by two goals within the first 36 minutes of the game. Kevin De Bruyne scored the first goal while Kelechi Iheanacho pounced on a rebound ball to score the second goal.

The two goals seemed to gear up United as they fought to get back in the game. Zlatan Ibrahimovic pulled one back for the Red Devils and missed a chance to score a second when a City defender stopped his low powered shot into an empty net.

The second half saw a better United showing as they repeatedly pressed for the equalizer. Marcus Rashford thought he had levelled the scores for United late in the game but his goal was ruled out for offside as the ball came in contact with Ibrahimovic who was in an offside position before it found the net.

The match ended with City holding on to their slender lead and ensuring that they continued their 100 per cent start to the season.
