All the United representation is of course due to the Red Devils upset triumph in the Manchester derby this past weekend. City dominated the game, especially so in possession, shots and scoring chances, but United battled back from a 2-0 deficit to win 3-2, as they made the most of their chances, and stopped just enough of City’s scoring opportunities.
