Far from a classic as Louis van Gaal’s men are held to a point at Old Trafford, despite a poor Manuel Pellegrini’s side. Citizens were mere spectators for much of the game, offering almost nothing going forward. The Red Devils grew into the game well in the second half but a lack of inventiveness, with Joe Hart’s smart goalkeeping, proves enough to keep Man Utd out.
