With goals from Bruno Fernandes and Luke Shaw, Manchester United won the Manchester derby for the second time in a row at the Etihad Stadium.
Manchester City’s 21-match winning streak came to an end on Sunday in the Manchester derby, as Manchester United beat the Premier League leaders 2-0.
Bruno Fernandes converted a penalty after 101 seconds after a clumsy foul by Gabriel Jesus, and Luke Shaw scored an unlikely goal in the 50th minute to double the visitors’ advantage.
Ederson came close to saving the Portuguese, but he could only palm Fernandes’ low attempt from the penalty spot into the net.
Despite being flustered at falling behind for the first time in 20 league games, City recovered to take control of the game.
City fought hard but couldn’t break down United’s defense, aided by the fact that only five of their 21 shots were on target. Despite appearing to be on track to win the season, they fell short against their opponents here.
