K Manchester City have ended Manchester United’s 40 game unbeaten run at home with a 2-1 victory. David Silva and Otamendi scored on either side of Marcus Rashford’s equalizer. The game symbolizes a plethora of things for both teams. I’m going to touch on most, if not all of them in this post.
Secondly, the little glimmer of hope that we will catch up with City and ultimately win the league, has been extinguished. I stood with my back to rationality and argued about United’s superiority over City. But tonight, City played like champions should. We lost to City last season at home, went a full circle without losing to anyone at Old Trafford and then get beaten by them again. That is absolutely frustrating to watch and endure. We can sit here and banter other clubs like Chelsea or Arsenal for finishing lower than us but as long as we don’t finish first, we’re no better than them. We are Manchester United. The foundation of this club has been constructed on winning. There is no possible way we can be happier with anything but first.
