The Manchester derby caused great expectations, but logic prevailed and turned the game into a formality. Manchester City had no trouble beating their classic Manchester United 2-0 at Old Trafford on matchday 11 of the Premier League. The goals of Eric Bailly against and Bernardo Silva made the difference on the scoreboard, although it fell short with respect to the wide dominance shown by the 'citizens'.
Duel won by Pep Guardiola in terms of game management, idea and desire. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could see his final game as Manchester United manager in a totally humiliating performance. Cristiano Ronaldo? Victim of a team that had no ideas, that was not motivated by the classic and that the attitude left much to be desired.
There is no excuse for Manchester United, but it is the reality that shows the continuity of a Solskjaer, who has not found the return. The Norwegian could really be sacked after a totally disappointing performance in this derby. He was a companion of 'City' in the derby and never fought it.
