Manchester City’s 21-game winning run is over after a 2-nil defeat to Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium.
Bruno Fernandes and Luke Shaw scored the goals for United to move them back up to second place in the Premier League.
Despite the loss, they’re still 11 points clear at the top of the table.
United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer expects City to finish the job.
“Nah we just take it one game at a time, of course, they’re too far ahead to think that we should catch them, last year we caught 15 (points) up with Leicester but of course, these are a different proposition, they’ve been excellent,” said Solskjaer
Another clean sheet and another important defensive display ⛔

Pep Guardiola says becoming champions is still very much in their hands.
He has urged his Manchester City players to “finish the job” of winning the Premier League title.
“We need six victories, six or seven victories to win, having that margin now is in our hands, we have to win all the games and if we lose four or five then they could win” he said.
Not our day.
