Manchester United has not been able to do this since the end of September in the Premier League. But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men could rely on one certainty: their streak of 29 games without defeat away in the league. From now on, they will have to look elsewhere to regain confidence. Because Paul Pogba and his family fell far from their bases for the first time since January 2020, in a match of shards.

It all started with a clinical strike from Mason Greenwood, who unlocked a moderately exciting first period (0-1, 19th). But Youri Tielemans, with a perfectly wound right ball, got everyone to agree at the half hour (1-1, 31st). It was in the last quarter of an hour that the two teams really let go of the horses. Caglar Soyuncu scored in fox (2-1, 78th), Marcus Rashford signed his return in the best possible way (2-2, 82nd).

United defense overwhelmed, City in control

Then United broke down. Completely exceeded defensively, the Mancunian club gave in on a half-volley from Jamie Vardy (3-2, 83rd), before leaving Patson Daka completely alone (4-2, 91st). Solskjaer’s men are therefore out of the top 4, unlike Manchester City who have kept Liverpool under pressure.

Pep Guardiola’s men did not shine, far from it. But they got the job done against a weak Burnley. Bernardo Silva has concretized, through statistics, his great performances in the content in recent weeks. The Portuguese opened the scoring opportunist, after an action he had initiated (1-0, 12th). Then Kevin De Bruyne took advantage of a moment of hesitation in the opposing defense to score with a strike from the left (2-0, 70 ‘). End of the ball.

Enough to remain dolphin of the Reds, with a small point behind, while waiting for the trip from Chelsea to Brentford (6.30 p.m.). In the other matches of the afternoon, we note the spectacular turnaround at Aston Villa, where Wolves led 2-0 snatched the victory with three goals in the last 15 minutes, including a deflected free kick from Ruben Neves at the 95th. Leeds, for his part, relapsed on the lawn of Southampton (1-0), while Norwich and Brighton neutralized each other (0-0).
