Manchester United beat Manchester City 2-0 in their derby match at Old Trafford. Man Utd reclaim derby win both home and away this season since 2019. Ole Gunner Solkjaer became the first manager to beat Pep Guardiola three times in four games in a season.

Anthony Martial volleyed Bruno Fernandes’ exquisite free-kick past Ederson half an hour into the 182nd Manchester derby, an effort the City goalkeeper got two hands to and should have saved.

Scott McTominay then settled the contest deep into stoppage-time, pouncing on Ederson’s wayward throw from the back with a superb long-range strike into the unguarded City net that sparked scenes of jubilation from the home crowd.

The victory sees United secure a first league double over City in a decade and leaves Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side just three points behind fourth-place Chelsea in the race for Champions League qualification, while the champions stay second after their five-game winning run was brought to an end.
