Every United fan could only watch Cristiano Ronaldo helpless as the Red Devils lose to Man City.
United were in high spirit after defeating Spurs emphatically and then playing out a draw against Atalanta.
Also, with Ole’s record against Pep, many believed the game would be a tough one.
It wasn’t to be as Manchester City took the lead early through an Eric Bailly own goal.
Manchester City dominated even though Ole played a very compact midfield with 3 at the back.
As the game went on, De Gea continued to make save after save keeping United in the game.
However, he could not do anything to keep Bernando Silva’s strike from going in.
One can blame Luke Shaw for not clearing the ball rather leaving it for De Gea to collect.
Bernando snuck behind Shaw to hit the ball which was too close for De Gea to react to.
Ole made significant changes in the second half and kept bringing in attacking players.
It looked late already as United could not make any clear cut chance.
Everyone could see Cristiano Ronaldo helpless upfront, but Ole did not remove him.
Now there is more pressure on not only Ole but the United board to take a decision.
