  Manchester United vs. Manchester City result: City dominates Ronaldo & Co. at Old Trafford Manchester City dominated in the first half and then went on cruise control in the second, taking all three points at Old Trafford on a Manchester United own goal and a Bernardo Silva tally.A 7th minute own goal by Manchester United’s Eric Bailly, and a Bernardo Silva goal at the stroke of halftime capped a comprehensive first-half performance by the visitors. Then City managed the second half, often controlling possession and keeping Man United at bay.

The pressure is piling on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following Manchester United 's 4-1 defeat to Watford on Saturday, but David de Gea stood by his coach after the game and claimed that the players were responsible for the dreadful performance. The Spanish goalkeeper explained that the Red Devils deserved to concede even more goals in the first half "I've been in difficult moments and always believe in myself but there are difficult moments we have to be strong in mind and body. We are paid to play for United and to do better than that. "This is not Manchester United or the way we ought to play.

Jose Mourinho condemned Ole Gunnar Solskjaer 's comments on Son Heung-min after the game labelling them 'sad'. The Spurs manager also called out their double standards saying that if he were to make them, the reactions would have been different.

Per the initial report from the Sunday Times, the Glazer family have instructed club executives to “further accelerate attempts to persuade Zinedine Zidane,” the former Real Madrid boss and three-time Champions League-winning manager, to take over at Old Trafford. This part of the plan is reportedly still in the works, yet not far enough along that Manchester United can be certain.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted United 's recent of form was 'embarrassing' as his side lost 4-1 to Watford on Saturday, slumping to a fourth defeat in five Premier League matches. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer refuses to discuss the prospect of the sack after Man United 's chastening defeat at Watford but the Norwegian accepts his side is in a 'very bad situation' as his job hangs by a thread.

“I’m the manger and I will take the flack and take the responsibility – the players are working as hard as they can. The fans are really disappointed I understand we all understand. They’ve supported us through thick and thin, they’ve been with us through this rebuild. We get to this season after finishing third and second and we sign top players, expectations go up and we’ve not had a result or the performances. They’re right to say their opinion, I’m not surprised after a day like this because for the first-half we were way below what we can do and what we should do.”

The goalkeeper could go up to the halfway line and put it in the box — we were out-fought.

Solskjaer sacked! Remembering the time Manchester United fans wanted Bayern Munich in the Champions League

  Solskjaer sacked! Remembering the time Manchester United fans wanted Bayern Munich in the Champions League There is NO news (aside from vaccine stuff), so let’s clown on Man United for a bit.So, in the interest of having a bit of fun (for a change), let’s make fun of Manchester United, specifically their fans on Twitter.

“Very hurt — when you play in the Premier League, you have got to turn up against good players and good opposition like this. The boys are in a terrible place in their heads now — we have let ourselves down and the fans down. It’s hard to stand here and explain that but that’s football and we have to take the flack for it.

“You look at the chances they created and the goals they scored, they out-fought us, they won challenges they won second balls. Nothing you would be surprised about them trying to do. I’m just disappointed we couldn’t deal with it better.”

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, on the Manchester United fans…

“I feel for the fans and I feel the same as them. We’re embarrassed losing the way we did. We are in a very bad run and bad situation but that’s part of football. They’ll support the team and whoever is on the pitch and sometimes you have to say sorry and that was a sorry for the performance.”

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea, on the disappointing performance…

There’s not much to say – it was embarrassing to see Man United play like we did today. It’s not acceptable – the way we were playing and doing things. It’s easy to blame the manager or the staff but sometimes it’s the players. We need to show much more than we are doing.

  NFL Week 11 grades from around the league Running backs led the way Sunday, with Jonathan Taylor and Austin Ekeler powering AFC squads to key victories. The Chiefs notched another high-profile win as well, seeing more defensive improvement, while the NFC wild-card race keeps expanding.

“Embarrassing first half – we could’ve conceded four goals in 45 minutes. It was hard to watch the team playing today – it was nightmare after nightmare. It’s not acceptable.

“We are trying to give our best and fight for the team but for sure something is very wrong. You can see in the games – it’s very low level, very poor. Sorry to the fans, once again.

“I’ve been in difficult moments and always believe in myself but there are difficult moments we have to be strong in mind and body. We are paid to play for United and to do better than that.

“This is not Manchester United or the way we ought to play – it’s difficult to say more than that.

“It’s been very bad for a long time – a club like Man United we have to be fighting for trophies and fighting for big things and to be honest we are far from that. Let’s see – we have to keep working hard and stick together. We always say the same things but it’s the truth – we have to look at ourselves and see where we can improve.

Man United's Long-Term Future Remains Murky, but the Short-Term Includes UCL Last 16 .
Another late Cristiano Ronaldo goal helped secure a knockout-stage spot for Man United, which is still seeking direction after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's ouster.It was for around an hour a broadly terrible game, which was much as Manchester United probably would have wanted it. This was not in any sense the turning over of a new leaf or a bold new era dawning, but after so many poor performances over the past month, there was at least a semblance of defensive resolve. Moreover, a 2–0 win at Villarreal secured Man United’s place in the last 16 of the Champions League with a game to spare.
