The Manchester Derby is always one of those fixtures that fans of English football look forward to. This has been especially true since City became a force to be reckoned with in the Premier League. However, this latest edition of the derby ended exactly the way fans didn’t want it to: in a scoreless draw.
Jose Mourinho came in with the mentality that a point was all he needed and set his side up to play accordingly. Whilst that was exactly what United achieved, it meant the game was largely dull.
Amazingly, City could not find a breakthrough despite being afforded the lion’s share of possession due to Mourinho’s tactics.
They almost had the game in the bag though; Gabriel Jesus scored what many thought was a stoppage time winner but was correctly ruled offside.
Whilst this is a heartbreaking situation for fans, it did lead to this hilarious moment wherein an overzealous City fan kept celebrating having not seen the assistant referee raise his flag.
