Gary Neville took to social media to reveal his delight at seeing Manchester United claim an impressive 2-1 victory over Manchester City in the Premier League on Saturday.

The Red Devils headed into the game looking to try and maintain their decent form after they had beaten Tottenham 2-1 at Old Trafford last week.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men started brightly and took the lead through a Marcus Rashford penalty in the 23rd minute at The Etihad.

Anthony Martial then doubled the visitors’ lead in the 29th minute to put Solskjaer’s men in control of the derby clash.

Nicolas Otamendi’s late goal in the 85th minute set up a tense finale, but the Red Devils held on to claim all three points and make it back to back wins in the Premier League.

Former Red Devils defender Neville was on commentary duty for Sky Sports during the game and he took to Twitter after the final whistle to reveal his delight at the performance and the result.

Neville wrote on Twitter: “Absolutely loved that game! 👹.”

Next up for Manchester United is a home clash against AZ Alkmaar in the Europa League on Thursday night, before a home game against Everton at Old Trafford in the Premier League next weekend.
