Manchester City cruise to derby win as Chelsea slip up against Burnley

By November 6, 2021No Comments

Manchester City piled the misery on Manchester United with a comfortable 2-0 victory in the derby.

United’s last home game was an embarrassing 5-0 humiliation at the hands of rivals Liverpool and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side fell to another one-sided defeat at Old Trafford.

City cruised to a Premier League victory far more comfortable than the scoreline suggested.

Eric Bailly’s own goal and a Bernardo Silva effort in the first half was enough to seal the bragging rights for their supporters.

Matej Vydra’s late goal stunned Chelsea as Burnley salvaged a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge.

The substitute netted the Clarets’ only real chance, cancelling out Kai Havertz’s header.

The hosts dominated until the 79th minute, only for a short lapse in concentration to let in Vydra.

Thomas Tuchel’s men will still go into the international break top of the table, but the German coach will doubtless be frustrated by dropping two points at home.

Goals from Mathias Normann and Teemu Pukki saw Norwich finally break their duck with a 2-1 victory at Brentford.

A superb solo effort from Normann and Pukki’s penalty secured a first success of the season for the beleaguered Canaries.

Rico Henry pulled a goal back for Brentford but Daniel Farke’s side held on for a first away victory in the Premier League in almost two years, since beating Everton at Goodison Park in November 2019.

Wilfried Zaha and Conor Gallagher fired Crystal Palace to a 2-0 victory at home to Wolves.
