Manchester City vs Manchester United key stats

Here are all the key stats from Manchester City’s 3-1 win over Manchester United:

  • Manchester United lost a Premier League game in which they led at half-time for the first time since September 2014 against Leicester (5-3), ending their run of 143 unbeaten games when ahead at the break in the competition since then (W123 D20).
  • Sunday was the first time Manchester City had ever come from behind to beat Manchester United in a Premier League match, in the 29th occasion of them falling behind in this fixture in the competition (D3 L25).
  • Phil Foden has scored 17 goals in all competitions for Man City this season; his most ever in a single campaign. The only Premier League players to score more non-penalty goals than Foden (17) this season are Erling Haaland (22) and Ollie Watkins (21).
  • Sunday was the 12th time Man City have fallen behind in a Premier League game this season; only in 2019-20 (13) have they done so more in a single campaign under Pep Guardiola, which was also the last campaign in which they did not win the title.
  • Marcus Rashford has now scored five goals against Manchester City in the Premier League; only Wayne Rooney (8) and Eric Cantona (7) have netted more for Manchester United against them in the competition.
