Manchester Derby

Manchester Derby – The Premier League continued on Saturday with a chunk of games taking place across England as teams continue to fight for different positions in the league.

The Manchester Derby saw Manchester City walk home with the entire points after beating city rivals Manchester United 2-0 at Old Trafford.

United shot themselves on the arm when they were to go behind after seven minutes through an Eric Bailly own goal. Things went from bad to worse for the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer side when Bernado Silva poked in the second minute to the break after he was left unmarked by the United defence.

While the City win was more of a predicted outcome, the shock of the day took place at Stamford Bridge where Burnley held high flying Chelsea to a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge.

With Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner still out with injuries, Kai Haverts seemed to have eased any scoring worries by putting the home side into the lead after 33 minutes. And while the Blues dominated the game, their lack of a cutting edge was punished by Matej Vydra eleven minutes from time.

Eddie Howe was in the stands when Newcastle United fought from a goal down to hold hosts Brighton to a 1-1 draw.

Leandro Trossard had given the hosts a 24th minute lead from the penalty spot but Isaac Hayden 66th minute strike ensured the game ended square in a match that saw keeper Roberto Sanchez sent off in stoppage time for a tackle on Callum Wilson.
