Every Touch: 26 passes to Derby delight

A footballing masterclass...

It's no secret that Pep Guardiola's City play beautiful football: building from the back, playing through the lines, seeking the perfect moment to strike...

And what better stage to execute a killer gameplan than the Manchester Derby?

The Champions were already a goal to the good at Old Trafford as the clock ticked down to half-time but rather than seeing the half out, the visitors sensed an opportunity.

When John Stones collected Cristiano Ronaldo's stray pass in the centre circle, City reorganised and instigated an attack of our own, which started from Ederson and involved every single player - and not for the first time.

During a dominant 86-second spell, City tallied 25 passes before Joao Cancelo curled a delightful delivery to the backpost where the sliding Bernardo Silva poked home our second of the afternoon.

Beautiful football, a glorious goal and a wonderful Derby Day win...
