Manchester Derby Ends In Uninspiring Goalless Draw

 Manchester United and Manchester City shared the spoils after playing out an uninspiring 0-0 draw at Old Trafford.

The two sides met four times last season, with 10 goals shared across the encounters, but this derby rarely threatened to serve up similar levels of drama to the last time they met, when Scott McTominay's late strike from distance secured a 2-0 win for United in both sides' last games in front of a full crowd back in March.

Riyad Mahrez had City's best chance of the match in the first half but was denied by David de Gea from close range after Kevin De Bruyne's cute through ball.

United thought they'd been given an opportunity to take the lead from 12 yards when Marcus Rashford was felled by Kyle Walker after the break, but a VAR check showed Rashford was offside when the ball was played to him and the decision was overruled.
