Manchester City are still putting pressure on Manchester United both with and without the ball. They've been more than happy to drive towards the penalty area when in possession, and although they have a rather unfortunate habit of trying to run through the whole defence when they do lose the ball they are getting it back very very quickly. It was that pressing that led to the goal, and it's where Yaya Toure excels. Where Michael Carrick and Paul Scholes were running the game for United in the first half, Toure's owning the second so far.
Adam Johnson came close with a darting run into the penalty area which Edwin van der Sar just about stopped, but following a series of corners Joleon Lescott should have made it 2-0 when he planted an unmarked header well wide. As if to remind their opponents that wasting chances against them is a bad idea, United have mounted their first attack of the game, winning a free kick in a dangerous position that also saw Pablo Zabaleta booked. Can United make something of this?
