Manchester City – Manchester United: scores and individual reviews
Marcus Rashford dominated in the 2-1 derby victory for Manchester United. Bernardo Silva and Gabriel Jesus particularly disappointed the local rival City. The notes and individual reviews.
Ederson: It was thanks to him that United took the lead in the 23rd minute. Until then, he held strong three times. Also in the 67th against Lingard on the spot. Rating: 2.5.
Kyle Walker: Back in the offensive game repeatedly in the six-room and from there participated in the construction game. Unterband with its tremendous speed some counter-attack. Rating: 3.
John Stones: Had to lose on the 59th due to injury and was replaced by Otamendi. Until then, he came up with impeccable passing games. Over 94 percent of his feeds came. Rating: 3.5.
Fernandinho: The skilled midfielder again helped in the back four. A solid performance but sometimes struggles with the speed deficits. Rating: 3.5.
Angelino: Before 0-2 he was too far away from goal scorer Martial, but otherwise always very toxic in the tackle. Tried with two shots, which were too imprecise. Rating: 4.
Kevin de Bruyne: Gone again and again with good ideas, for example with the flanks of Jesus (38) and David Silva (45). In the 40th, he chased a free kick just over the crossbar. Rating: 3.
Rodrigo: Especially in the early stages had major problems to stop United's lightning attack. Increased with increasing playing time slightly. In the 64th, he narrowly missed his long shot. Rating: 4.
David Silva: Made the first shot by City in the 34th, but too central. Not as catchy as one is used to from him. By his standards, a weak pass of only around 85 percent. Rating: 4.
Bernardo Silva: Rashford cleared his own penalty area in the 20th with excessive motivation, then yellow for it and was responsible for the penalty that led to 0: 1. Not determined enough in his actions, in the 65th substituted for Mahrez. Rating: 4.5.
Gabriel Jesus: Not in the game for long, in the 38th, but with the best chance of the first half. Headed de Bruyne's flank free standing over it. In general, hardly binding for the game to their team. Rating: 4.5.
Raheem Sterling: The most active of the City's attacking trio. Especially in the early stages with a lot of drag to goal, but with increasing playing time, but escaped by opponent Wan-Bissaka. Rating: 3.5.
Nicolas Otamendi: Come second for the injured Stones. The head just past a corner in the 73rd, 85th ball was inside. Note: 2.5.
Riyad Mahrez: From the 65th for Bernardo Silva in the game. Prepared for 1: 2 and tested Gea with a shot shortly after. Rating: 2.5.
Ilkay Gündogan: Came right after the 1: 2 goal and didn't put any striking accents. No ranking.
David de Gea: Was originally barely busy. Most city shoots went next to the gate, the others were easy to hold. 1: 2 he had no chance, shortly after holding strong against Mahrez. Rating: 3.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka: Fighting a private duel with Sterling. With a few exceptions, he usually had him under control. In offensive play, Wan-Bissaka committed too many bad passes and ball losses. At 1: 2, he did not stop opponent Otamendi. Note: 3.
Victor Lindelöf: In the 14th, he ran the ball into his own penalty area on his hand, but the penalty was missed. In the 55th with a monster tackle that prevented a possible goal from De Bruyne. Note: 2.5.
Harry Maguire: Convinced with rustic duel behavior. Maguire won almost 71 percent of its direct duels. Rating: 2.5.
Luke Shaw: Like his three defensive colleagues, Shaw sacrificed himself and threw himself into every fight. Bytes in the 88th completely worn out. Rating: 2.5.
Scott McTomay: Work machine in central midfield. Most of the challenges were side by side with United winning a full 85 percent. Offensively, he set less accents than colleague Fred. Rating: 2.5.
Fred: Played a strong pass on Rashford before losing his opportunity in 25. Fortunately, his handball was not penalized during the stoppage time in the first half. Rating: 3.
Daniel James: Started well and gave the first shot in the second. He prepared the Martials 2-0. Registered best passed on United. Note: 2.5.
Jesse Lingard: Was involved in most of the fast United contests in the first place and played well. For imprecise in the final situations. Like all his colleagues, he also went down in the second half. Note: 3.
Marcus Rashford: Player of the Day. He scored the penalty to make it 1-0 and then converted it himself. Also with good passes in the attack third and some more dangerous shots, including a snap in the 27th note: 2.
Anthony Martial: United's most eye-catching offensive player, but scored 2: 0 when he initially held the ball well and then Einschoss exactly down the left. Rating: 2.5.
Andreas Pereira: came on for Martial in the 74th and was shown a yellow card after a kick against Sterling a few seconds later – a dark yellow. No ranking.
Ashley Young: Replaced Shaw for the last few minutes. No ranking.
Axel Tuanzebe: It was too late for Lingard to get off the clock. No ranking.
Rashford has already set his PL goal record
