More Old Trafford misery for United with 2-0 loss to City

It took only seven minutes of the Manchester derby to be in no doubt about the parlous state of United. When Eric Bailly clumsily intercepted João Cancelo’s cross to divert the ball into his own net, it was the start of another agonizing Old Trafford encounter with a now far superior rival. Humiliation was avoided, two weeks after being routed 5-0 by Liverpool here, but it was another encounter to reinforce just how far United has slipped behind the Premier League’s elite.
