Man United were forced to battle from 2-0 down at home to Burnley to draw 2-2 on Boxing Day, much to the delight of Man City fans all over the world.
While City enjoy a record winning streak and sitting comfortably at the top of the Premier League – currently 12 points clear of second-placed United – Jose Mourinho’s side are struggling for points having had to settle for 2-2 draws twice four days.
It means City can go a huge 15 points clear at the top of the league with a win against Newcastle on Wednesday night and would all but secure them a third Premier League crown.
It really has been a big shift in power in Manchester over the few years and Pep Guardiola’s City are setting a benchmark not many will be able to reach, regardless of how much money is spent on players.
City fans are enjoying the downfall of their once great rivals, as you can tell by the Twitter reaction below…
Man United fans claim they don’t buy success.
They are right.

Do not congratulate nonsense! They went behind 2 -0 to Burnley and to worsen the pain and embarrassment celebrate catching up to them! Disgraceful performance by “Pogba” United! #MUFC
Manchester is Blue! 🤙🏽🦈 #MCFC
