GOOD NEWS: After the match, Pep Guardiola and Erling Haaland laud a single Manchester United player…..

Another excruciating derby matchup saw Manchester City defeat Manchester United 3-0 at Old Trafford.

January saw a lot of hope following United’s 2-1 victory over City at Old Trafford. The outcome from this past Sunday had a number of drawbacks.

City’s 3-0 victory highlighted the fact that Erik ten Hag’s club is not making any progress toward closing the gap between the two teams.

However, if you were looking for something to take away from the performance, it was Andre Onana’s.

For Manchester United vs City, Andre Onana made seven saves, which was crucial in maintaining a reasonable score.

His two-handed diving stop at the conclusion of the first half to block an Erling Haaland header from point blank range was the best save of the game.

“Erling had an incredible chance at the end of the first half and Onana makes an incredible save,” City manager Pep Guardiola said to BBC Sport in reference to the save.

Following his save at the other end against a Scott McTominay effort, Guardiola again applauded his own goalie.

“We were at our best in the second half after the second goal, but they had one chance with McTominay and Ederson makes a great save.”

In addition to praising Andre Onana, striker Erling Haaland highlighted one of his saves made after the break.

“It was an incredible save right before the half,” he told the City media. When I chipped it in the second half, he made another outstanding save with his head. What is is, what is. We prevailed.
