Esteemed Kompany host Steven Mcinerney goes over 5 things we learned from Manchester City’s 3-nil win over local rival Manchester United.
Bernardo Silva shone again at Old Trafford. The Portuguese midfielder is one of City’s most important players and he put in another high-quality performance against United. Pep Guardiola reserved special praise for the City midfielder. Bernardo saves some of his best performances for Old Trafford and he was at his best again at the weekend.
Jack Grealish responded to criticism of his slow start to the season with another quality performance. The England international followed up his performance against Young Boys with another brilliant shift. The combination between Grealish and Bernardo tore shreds through the United defence. The importance of an in-form Grealish to Pep Guardiola’s side plays was evident for all to see at Old Trafford.
The game also featured another quality display from John Stones. The role the England defender plays for the treble winners can only be played by him. His importance to the City set-up was highlighted due to his late start to this season due to injury. It’s no coincidence that City have begun to look near their best with Stones back in the lineup.
It was evident just how big the gap between City and United has become based on the derby victory. It was a comprehensive victory for the treble winners and came off the back of arguably City’s best performance of the season.
