Manchester United Vs. Manchester City, 2011 Premier League: City Building Momentum

Things have hardly died down in Manchester United vs. Manchester City at Old Trafford, where the visitors have overcome a terrible opening spell with a goal and are now all over their red-clad hosts. Former Arsenal fullback Gael Clicky is the latest to make a rampaging run forward, skipping through the heart of the defence before finally chickening out and laying the ball off to Sergio Aguero, who's rather too wide to do anything.

United's counterattacking appears to involve crossing the ball in the vague direction of the touchline beyond Joe Hart. A novel approach but it might possibly need some rethinking, although its obvious value is seen when Yaya Toure tries the exact same thing with a 'shot' towards David de Gea's frame that the Spanish goalkeeper mocks gently as it floats past.

Anderson's forced Hart into a same now. New strategy: Hit ball right at him and hope quantum phasing does the work for you.
