ICC: Red Devils earn bragging rights in derby

ICC-MUFC-MCFC

Lukaku scored his second goal with the Red Devils last night, as both him and Rashford found the net to give the Red Devils an early bragging rights over the noisy neighbours in the first Manchester derby played on foreign soil, in Texas.

Mourinho started with a strong side, and the team looked very lively from kickoff, as Herrera tested City’s new keeper, Ederson, with a long range effort. However, City got in the pace as the game progressed, and United were lucky not to concede from the chances presented to the Citizens. But the Red Devils finally broke the deadlock on the 37th minute, as Lukaku he got the better of Ederson following Pogba’s cross, and from a tight angle he fired the ball in. City’s miseries were not over, as two minutes later Rashford scored with Mkhitaryan providing the assist.

The second half saw an influx of substitutions from both sides, but the scoreline remained unchanged despite United going close twice thru the duo Rashford and Lukaku, and the changes brought about took out the energy shown in the first half. United will now face Real Madrid in their next ICC game, a more tougher test for them, given the current tense exchanges between these two in the transfer market.
