Manchester City Defeats Manchester United 3-1 in Season Double Win

Last weekend, the 27th round of the Premier League witnessed the 192nd “Manchester City Derby” between defending champion Manchester City and Manchester United. The match ended with a 3-1 victory for Manchester City, completing a season double win against their rivals, the “Red Devils”.

The game started with an early lead for Manchester United, with Rashford scoring in the 7th minute. However, Manchester City remained composed and patient, eventually equalizing the score with a goal from Foden in the 56th minute. Foden later scored his second goal in the 80th minute, giving Manchester City the lead. In stoppage time, Haaland secured the victory with a third goal for the team.

This win marked the first time Manchester City has reversed and defeated Manchester United in the Premier League. The loss also ended Manchester United’s record of 143 halftime leads since 2014.
