Both Manchester City and Manchester United won their Football League matches to continue their chase for a trophy. However, despite these successes, only one club will be able to continue to excel.
Manchester City defeated their opponent, Swansea, 2-1. Clichy netted the first goal for City in the 49th minute and Garcia Serrano scored the second. The only moment in which Swansea earned recognition was in extra time when Sigurdsson netted a consolation goal.
It didn’t take much for City to grab the win they needed. Sometimes, there is just no competition!
Manchester United had a greater win, with a scoreline of 3-1, however, they did appear to struggle a little more. Carrick netted the first goal against Northampton Town in the 17th minute. Sadly, a penalty awarded to the opposition a few minutes before half time meant that the game was level at the start of the second half.
Luckily enough, United were able to gather the strength to score two more winning goals! One was scored by Herrera (68′) and the other by Rashford (75′). If United are able to take the lead twice in one game, then who knows what else they could do…
The good news is that both Manchester Teams will feature in the fourth round of the League Cup. Hooray! However, the bad news is that in this round the two teams will be facing one another! Oh no! Now only one of them will be able to make it to the quarter finals.
There is only one question that remains: will it be City or United that proves to be the better, bolder and most brutal Manchester club of all?
