Over the weekend, Manchester was once again painted red as Manchester United hosted and defeated Manchester City at Old Trafford to claim all three points from a huge derby clash.
And if Pep Guardiola’s chances of reclaiming the Premier League throne were slim to begin with, now they are all but extinguished following this result against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s troops.
But even though the Citizens were not at their usual brilliant best, their goalie, Ederson, was having a real nightmare on the pitch as the Brazilian’s mistakes gifted the Red Devils their goals.
And James Pearce, a Liverpool correspondent for The Athletic, was definitely enjoying the performance that was on display, posting a cheeky reply on his Twitter profile shortly after the goalkeeper’s mistake.

Of course, the reason why Pearce was even following this clash so closely is because no one is as happy with this Man City defeat as Liverpool themselves, and there is also the Alisson vs Ederson debate.
The long-awaited Premier League crown is practically within their grasp and Man United did them a massive favour once again.
Liverpool fans, what did you think of Ederson’s mistakes on the night? Is the title race now well and truly over? Let us know down in the comments below!
