S6 E29: An a-shaw-ed derby victory
Manchester United followed up a dreary Wednesday night in South London with a firey start away to rivals Manchester City. Bruno Fernandes put United in front after 2 minutes and the Reds followed it up in the second half with a wonderful goal from Luke Shaw, the club's best player of 2021 and perhaps one of the league's best too. As the sun set on Manchester on Sunday night, the city was red, for a time at least. City are still top of the league, and by some distance, but derby victory provides a boost for confidence, for momentum and for morale going into a tough run of fixtures for a United side who had struggled to create before this 2-0 win at the Etihad.
This week on the Manchester United Weekly Podcas with Harry Robinson and Jack Tait, we're reviewing games against City and Palace, discussing the wider context of the recent happenings at United and providing you with an extensive youth, loan and women's round-up. Casey Stoney's side won 3-0 and James Garner received high praise from Chris Hughton. At the end of the show, we looked ahead to games against AC Milan and West Ham before Patrons get a bonus Q&A after we wrap things up in which we'll talk Ole's tactics, Varane and more.
