United enjoyed a good start to th encounter as Paul Pogba forced City goalkeeper Ederson into a save after 12 minutes.

Pep Guardiola's charges took control from then on, but they had to wait until the 44th minute for a chance as Sergio Aguero was denied by a fine save from David de Gea.

Eight minutes into the second half, City broke the deadlock as Bernardo Silva cut inside before drilling the into the bottom corner.

The hosts should have level matters minutes later when Marcus Rashford sent a cross to the far post for Jesse Lingard, who was unable to score with the net gaping.

City eventually got their second goal on 65 minutes as Raheem Sterling played in second-half substitute Leroy Sane, who drilled the ball home at De Gea's near post.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer responded by throwing on Romelu Lukaku for Pereira in the final 20 minutes with the hope of getting themselves back in to the clash.
