Premier League, Manchester United 0-0 Manchester City: Records broken
A drab Manchester derby ended goalless at Old Trafford as both teams won't have much to complain. Either teams had a chance to break into the top four in gameweek 12 of the Premier League, however, things didn't pan out in a cautious display by both sides. Manchester United sit a point above Manchester City, with both teams playing 11 games each. Here's more.
Chances were far and few for both sides. Pep Guardiola did his homework and stopped United from the counter attacks that saw them lose last season.
