Pep Guardiola might be one of the best managers in world football but when it comes to meeting Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the Spaniard has always fallen short.
United recorded another win over City at the Etihad and according to a stat from Sky Sports Statto, Solskjaer became the first manager to win three successive away games against a Pep Guardiola side.
United who have regressed in recent games were given a slight chance in upsetting their hosts but they did just that after taking the lead inside 60 seconds when Bruno Fernandes tucked in a penalty after Gabriel Jesus had fouled Anthony Martial in the box.
Left-back Luke Shaw then doubled United's advantage in the evening with the two first-half goals proving to be the difference in a game that was majorly dominated by the hosts.
