Derbies don't get much bigger than this. When the two halves of Manchester collide, the outcome is little but predictable. Having lost 4 of the previous meetings, victory was all that was acceptable. And victory was the result. A thrilling match with a final score of 4 - 2 and stellar performances from the likes of Ander Herrera, Juan Mata, Marouane Fellaini and Ashley Young silenced the opener from Aguero. Doubts were raised as we went 1 - 0 down, but we responded in a way we've always done before.
The big Belgian was key to our victory. Carrick, too was instrumental in the match with his accurate passes. He often slowed down the game and controlled the flow of the match.
It seems as though van Gaal's tactics and 'philosophy' are finally working. It took some time though, but all good things do take time. We face Chelsea next week at Stamford Bridge. They are in quite good a form themselves but when the red devils are rolling, we won't stop till we're finished.
