Match Report: Manchester City 1-0 Manchester United

Another disappointing derby for United fans. The game ended in a 1-0 defeat at the home of our bitter rivals. On another day, and with 10 men, United could have easily come away with a point or even three but it wasn’t to be. It was a much better performance than recent derbies. My man of the match would go to Luke Shaw who was superb at the back.

Match Report: Manchester United 1-1 Sunderland

The first away game of the season for United ended in a 1-1 draw with Juan Mata scoring the goal for United. An injury hit side massively struggled against Sunderland, Cleverley was partnering Fletcher in a poor midfield, and Robin Van Persie returned, lacking fitness. It was really hard viewing for United fans throughout a poor 90 minutes.
