On Wednesday, Manchester United was defeated 2-0 by Manchester City, in a high-profile derby clash at the Premier League.
Both of Manchester City’s goals came in the second half – from Bernardo Silva (54th minute) and Leroy Sane (66th minute).
The Red Devils had a relatively poor game, enjoying only 37% of ball possession apart from attempting just one shot on target throughout the game.
Meanwhile, this was also United’s seventh loss in nine straight games – something which has not happened at the club since 1962 (as per Simon Stone, BBC Sport):
Seven defeats in nine for @ManUtd for first time since 1962.

West Ham and Watford are the only two teams who have been defeated by Manchester United, since their iconic 3-1 win against Paris Saint Germain in the second-leg of the Champions League round-of-16 in March.
Since the Paris game, United played Arsenal (lost 2-0), Wolverhampton Wanderers twice (lost 2-1 on both occasions), Watford, Barcelona twice (lost 1-0 and 3-0), West Ham, Everton (lost 4-0) and now, Manchester City.
The Red Devils have also not scored a single goal in the past four hours and 40 minutes of their game time, and their most recent goal from open play came more than eight hours ago:
MUFC haven't scored a goal for 4 hours 40 mins and counting. MUFC haven't scored from open play for 8 hours 47 minutes.

With this latest loss, it also seems that they will fail to qualify for the Champions League next season.
Up next, Manchester United will face Chelsea in the Premier League, on 28 April.
