Manchester Mope

Manchester City and Manchester United both underperformed this weekend. At least they kept each other company in their misery.

After Manchester United defeated Zorya Luhansk in the Europa League earlier on in the week, it was thought that their good fortune would continue throughout the week. Sadly, it did not. Manchester United had quite a bland day after drawing 1-1 with Stoke. United took the lead with Martial’s goal in the 69th minute. However, in the 82nd, Allen equalised for the opposing side. 



A win never comes easy. Or sometimes, it doesn’t come at all.

Manchester City seem to have learnt this better than any team today, after losing 2-0 to Tottenham. They knew it would be a tough match to win, but perhaps they didn’t know just how hard.

The shock came when Kolarov netted a goal in the 9th minute. This was then joined by Alli’s goal in the 37th. The winners and the losers were chosen before half time!

Manchester United failed to break away from Chelsea on the PL table and, although City remain top, the gap between them and their competitors has minimised. Hopefully, next week, their labours might bear greater fruit.
