Victor Lindelof feels Manchester United should have pressed Manchester City hard after Anthony Martial pulled one goal back for the visitors.
United looked completely hapless as City dominated for most of the part. David Silva started the proceedings very early with an intelligent finish while Sergio Aguero doubled the advantage after the break.
United looked to have slowed the tempo of the match in the latter part of the first half but they couldn’t replicate in the following half. Jose Mourinho decided to bring in Romelu Lukaku and the big Belgian had an immediate impact as he was fouled inside the penalty box by Ederson which led the Referee pointing to the spot.
Anthony Martial made no mistake as he sent the Brazilian to the wrong side to reduce the deficit but a late goal from Illkay Gundogan sealed three points for the hosts.
Lindelof who has been a regular in the United lineup said, “After we scored after our first goal we could have been a bit more aggressive and tried a little bit more.
“After that goal they were quite nervous and it felt like we could have scored another, but they scored a third goal instead. We are very, very disappointed because we felt that we could have scored a second goal and got a better result.
“We had quite a lot of possession, but we didn’t really come in behind their defensive line into their last third of the pitch. We tried and it felt like we could’ve hurt them more.”
