at home. Martial’s great move got the Red Devils an early penalty whichBruno Fernandes
made it 1-0. Luke Shaw scored the second goal in the second half and although City had more possession, they failed to score.
, City’s main man says that sometimes it’s necessary to lose a game. "Obviously I don't think we started very well," the Belgium international toldSky Sports
after the game.
"We knew it would be hard.
"We played into their hands with the first goal and we needed about 15 minutes to settle a bit. Then we played pretty good but we didn't score and that made a difference.
"It is not the best if you go behind after one minute but you still have 90 minutes after that. The second was a little worse [to concede] but I think the mentality of the players was the same as always.
"It is not nice to lose the derby but sometimes it happens. We have to move on - Wednesday is a new game.
"Sometimes it is necessary to lose games and have bad spells. Even in the winning run we had some bad spells but overcame then, we didn't today. Sometimes it can be a positive."
