There’s actually been a lot of things to enjoy from a Man United point of view this season, and the growth of Fred is one of them.
Who knows if he just needed time to settle or perhaps Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has found the best way to use his pace and energy, but he’s been everywhere today against City.
This incident before half time is a controversial one, with Mike Dean deciding to book the Brazilian for diving:
Should #MUFC have had a penalty?

It’s one that could go either way when you see it, but Fred is clearly caught on the shin and it looks like a foul.
You can perhaps argue it was just incidental contact and no penalty was the correct call, but the yellow card is ridiculous.
