Manchester City 0-0 Manchester United
The wide spread Super Sunday Manchester derby wasn’t super as expected, as there were lack of goals and no sting in the game at all. It wasn’t until 82 that the first shot on target was seen. This shows the players were out for draw or playing in a cautious manner.
Jesse Lingard nearly grabbed a winner for United five minutes before full time as he smashed a volley against the crossbar. Chris Smalling also stung the hands of Joe Hart but it all ended 0-0 at Old Trafford.
May be if Aguero and Silva was present, the game would have been seen in a different angle because City failed to create a single chance and United didn’t provide real goal threats.
Sunderland 3-0 Newcastle United
