Welcome to your quick recap.

Manchester City suffered a rare home defeat in their latest fixture, against Manchester United.

One where City dominated possession and chances created, it did not matter.

The story of the night was City’s lackluster performance and squandering chances in front of goal. Pep got this match wrong.

A really poor showing from Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling helped endure a tough and disappointing loss.

Kevin De Bruyne and many others were just not in it and/or rusty and nothing went City’s way.

Manchester City’s streak is now over. It held at 21 straight wins in all comps, which is still so commendable.

Pep Guardiola and his staff an all at the club must be incredibly proud, albeit disappointed tonight.

End of a streak.

In the end, a lackluster team effort and no energy from the group, made it a dreadful Derby day.
