Manchester City was dominant for almost every minute, but a moment of ineptitude has given Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Manchester United hope at Old Trafford.

Ibra’s late goal calmed the deficit to 2-1 after Kevin De Bruyne and Kelechi Iheanacho lifted Pep Guardiola‘s visitors to a two-goal lead.

Here are your goals:


Goal 1: De Bruyne, Iheanacho work Bailly, Blind

Jose Mourinho expects better defending than the baffling work done by Eric Bailly and Daley Blind here.

Manchester United’s starting center backs were absolutely worked by Manchester City, and the visitors have a 1-0 lead at Old Trafford early Saturday morning.

Aleksandar Kolarov‘s bomb of a pass was flicked forward by Kelechi Iheanacho in front of Bailly, and Kevin De Bruyne lunged to push the flick past a sleeping Blind.

The Belgian did the rest with a classy, classy, class-say finish past David De Gea.


Goal 2: Iheanacho responds to the goal post alarm clock

The teenager was stunned, perhaps expecting he was offside, when he was left alone in front of De Gea to pass a goal post rebound behind the Spaniard.

De Bruyne had curled a shot through traffic off the far post, and United’s defense didn’t react as the Nigerian had moments to score City’s second goal.


Goal 3: Claudio, Claudio, Claudio

New City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo won’t appreciate seeing this again. If you’re going to gift opportunities, don’t give them to Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Calm, cool, collected, clinical.
