Manchester United Vs Manchester City December 2012

11 Dec

The two top teams in England went face to face at the Etihad stadium in Manchester on Sunday with last seasons runners up coming out on top thanks to goals from Wayne Rooney(2) and Robin Van Persie. United went ahead thanks to great link up play between Van Persie and Young and Rooney finished into the corner with a messy looking shot. They had scored at the fifteen minute mark and with twenty eight mins gone Rooney struck again to leave city fans and players shocked. They were comfortably ahead and should have been three up as Ashley Young finished but it was wrongly called for offside. Not long after that De Gea made a wonderful double save from Aguero and Silva but only the ball fell to Toure at the edge of the box and he finished well to make it 2-1. United should have been given a penalty after Evra was tripped in the box but nothing was given and then at the 85th minute City got a corner and the ball wasn’t cleared. Zabaleta was waiting at the top of the box to strike home and the city players were running back with the ball ready to chase United for the rest of the game. United brought on Welbeck and he hassled Clichy and won the ball off him in a dangerous position only for Clichy to foul him. So Rvp stood over the ball at the edge of the box in a perfect position for his left foot. And with 92 mins on the clock he struck home the winner to send the United players , staff and fans into massive celebrations. Unfortunately though a city fan threw a 2p coin at Rio Ferdinand and he had blood running down his face which is a disgrace on the part of the city fans. They will most likely be charged soon by the FA. But Manchester United go 6 points clear at the top of he table which will definitely put a smile on the face of United fans everywhere.
