Sergio Aguero doubled Manchester City’s lead just three minutes into the second half.
David de Gea’s reactions are usually fast, but this time around they weren’t fast enough to prevent the Argentina international from scoring his 151st Premier League goal.
From a defensive point of view, Victor Lindelof wasn’t quick enough to follow Aguero after the City striker completed a one-two with Mahrez at the edge of the box before driving closer towards the goal.
You would think being 2-0 down will force Jose Mourinho’s hand a little sooner. For instance, the manager has already asked Romelu Lukaku to warm-up on the touchline.
The Belgium international missed United’s last two games through injury — wins over Bournemouth and Juventus — but has a chance now to return with a bang.
Mourinho also has Sanchez to bring on if he decides to do so…
Last season, United trailed City 2-0 before forcing a 3-2 comeback win.
Will history repeat itself? Our fingers are crossed.
