Kelechi Ihanacho celebrates his goal

Finally, the much-talked derby encounter between two of Europe’s champions, Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United and Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City has ended. The game ended with the visitors, Manchester City thrashing Manchester United 1-2 in their own home, with Nigerian star palyer, Kelechi, also firing home a shot for City.


Kevin De Bruyne and Kelechi Iheanacho were both on target in the 2-1 victory at Old Trafford.

Pep Guardiola’s side raced into a two-goal lead in a pulsating opening 36 minutes before Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored his fourth goal in as many Premier League matches with half-time approaching.

De Bruyne put the visitors ahead on 15 minutes after reacting first to Iheanacho’s flick-on from a long punt from Aleksandar Kolarov. The Belgian burst through before sending David De Gea the wrong way with a cool finish.

City were dominant in the first half and De Bruyne was again prominent in the second goal when he curled a left-footed shot off the far post, which Iheanacho polished off from close range.

United found a way back into the match when goalkeeper Claudio Bravo, on his Premier League debut, and team-mate John Stones impeded each other in their attempt to deal with Wayne Rooney’s free-kick, and Ibrahimovic reacted with a superb half-volley from the edge of the area.

Man of the match: Kevin De Bruyne


A superb, all-round performance by De Bruyne who scored one, made another and was the heart and soul of the Blues, particularly in the first half. Always available with a tireless work-rate he almost set up three or four more and then struck the inside of the post in the second-half. Fantastic performance by a special player. There were fantastic performances all over the pitch with special mentions for Otamendi, Nolito, Silva and Fernandinho all excellent and contenders for the award.
