Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said Manchester United displayed the “best performance we have had” in a derby during his tenure as his side played out a dismal stalemate behind closed doors against Manchester City at Old Trafford.
In a game devoid of quality and excitement, neither side were able to carve out the opportunity that could make a difference amid the eerie silence of the so-called ‘Theatre Of Dreams’.
Gabriel Jesus was off target and Riyad Mahrez brought a routine save from David de Gea with City’s best first-half chances while Scott McTominay was agonisingly inches away from Victor Lindelof’s flick as United sought the breakthrough.
United defeated City three times in four meetings last season, including a league double over their rivals.
“Possession on the ball, control (was better),” said Solskjaer. “Of course I think last year at the Etihad we could have blown them away from the 10th to the 25th minute. We could have scored four goals.
“Some unbelievable counter-attacking football, but we had about 30% possession and that second half we were hanging on.
