Going down to 10 men doesn’t mean you concede 5 goals like Manchester United did,against Manchester City. There have been matches were a sending off has galvanized the team,and they went on to win the match. Darren Fletcher’s goal may have given United a false hope that they can produce another of their famous comebacks,but it proved their undoing as City’s counter attack was too strong.
With both the full backs playing almost as wingers,they were leaving just three at the back and at times only two. This made it too easy for City’s forward players as they found space and time to destroy Man United.The below video by JohnGME clearly showcases all of City’s attacks after United were down to 10 men as Jonny Evans was sent off.
