EPL Video Highlights for the week 32 match between Manchester United v Manchester City. Watch the exciting outcome of the Manchester derby from Monday, April 8, 2013. Video is available for U.S. based readers.
Manchester United 1 – 2 Manchester City
Not too many positives for United to take from this except that they remain 12 points clear and will almost certainly win the Premier League title. To be completely fair City were the better team and deserve their win. United never really did enough to create good chances and always seemed to run out of ideas in the final third. It is somewhat telling that their only goal came from a set piece, and an own goal off of Vincent Kompany’s back, at that.
Not a convincing display from the soon to be Champions. Yet another massive match in which they completely let the fans down. Draws to Real Madrid and Chelsea followed by return losses and now this, a loss to their biggest rivals. Sure, the match was basically being played for bragging rights, but those bragging rights get to go to City.
There were no real tactical shifts made by Sir Alex that changed the game or gave them any extra creatively to breach City’s solid defense. On the other side, Mancini’s introduction of Sergio Aguero was a game changer that resulted in the winner.
United stay top of the Premier League table by 12 points. The win for City means that they gain some distance in securing second place with a 7 point lead over Chelsea and Tottenham.
