Manchester United 'Weakness' Exposed in Derby Humiliation

The Red Devils couldn't manage to get hold of firing Manchester City forwards, Erling Haaland, Jack Grealish, Kevin DeBruyne and Phill Foden as the Cityzens came out winners in a humiliating 6-3 defeat to their arch rivals at the Etihad Stadium.

Hence, the Pep Guardiola's side might have finally exposed the Erik ten Hag's side massive weakness which several teams have failed to exploit since the start of the 2022/23 season with only Brentford and Brighton seemingly the only clubs to have taken advantage.

Despite having a rocky defence in Lisandro Martinez, Raphael Varane, Diogo Dalot and Tyrell Malacia, the Red Devils couldn't overcome the constant counter pressing from the Sky Blues' forward line.

The Erik ten Hag's side seems to be too focused in holding the ball upfront, forgetting to dominate the game from the midfield and hence, giving the opponents an easy time during the counter attacks and this was massively evident at the Etihad Stadium as most of the City goals were scored from the break.
