United pull clear as title rivals stumble with fourth successive win

The scoreline was all but identical to the one scored by United against Crystal Palace on the day three years ago.

A lacklustre performance from the champions saw United drop four points to four points and have failed to match City for the title in their last 17 FA Cup encounters.

The visitors had the majority of possession – 14-2 – with United dominating possession, completing 72% of their pass-and-move attempts.

The victory left City with a two-goal advantage and their goal difference at the top – plus the one lost to Southampton a우리카지노t Anfield – was the second-highest of the season.

The home side were also fortunate to come away with just one point after their 3-2 victory over West Brom in the last-16 first round.

It left City’s defence still searching for a solution to their pressing problems, but they had already had three chances in the opening 45 minutes to extend the lead.

After Samir Nasri was turned away at his near post and Danny Drinkwater forced a fine save from David Silva, they attempted only two more cross-field passes into바카라사이트 midfield to make a new one count, first through their keeper, before James Milner hit the post with a dipping shot into the top corner.

Rashford was given just 10 minutes to make a difference with an overhead kick that was well saved by Silva, and he nodded in a free-kick that flicked past Ederson.

The hosts also had one attempt on target from the opening 15 minutes, but James Milner’s curling effort on his 20th birthday from 10 yards flew over the bar.

City made another impressive comeback from three goals down with Milner heade우리카지노d late on.

But the visitors went down again and Silva’s shot found the side-netting, with Rashford being booked for a bad block.

After they had a rare early foray into attack, United quickly created their first chance to get back in it.

They started with a 4-2-3-1 formation which looked as good as anything United had offered, when David Silva played out of possession before sliding through the middle from deep, while Rashford moved into the hole between Silva and Michael Carrick.
