Manchester United made a very good start and got a penalty after just 30 seconds as Gabriel Jesus brought down Martial in City’s box. Bruno Fernandes stepped up and converted to open the scoring in the second minute.

Manchester United defended very well and looked a well-drilled side as Manchester City found it difficult to open them up and create clear goal-scoring opportunities and ended the first half with the one-goal lead.
