& # 39; That's a shocking defense, Sunday League at its best & # 39 ;: Fans spot Manchester United & # 39; s & # 39; 1-1-1-1-3-3 & # 39; formation after their defense has fallen hopelessly out of position for Manchester City's second goal
- Manchester United was defeated by defending champion Manchester City in derby
- Substitute Leroy Sane came off the bench to score the decisive second goal
- Supporters emphasized position-from-home defense in the run-up to the goal
Manchester United received an embarrassing defeat from local rivals Manchester City on Wednesday, but fans gathered more criticism from the side for the decisive second goal.
While Raheem Sterling interrupts the counterattack and sends the ball to Leroy Sane, the defense of the house is held vertically while the German winger fires home.
Center ridges Matteo Darmian, Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof are in a straight line as the goal goes in.

One fan called it the & # 39; Christmas tree formation & # 39; in a nod to the now rarely used tactics.
One supporter labeled the defense as & # 39; Sunday League at its best & # 39; while another claimed that & # 39; if you turn your phone on its side, it's actually a good line & # 39 ;.
Bernardo had given the title hunters the lead 12 minutes earlier when Manchester City reached the top of the Premier League with one point ahead of Liverpool.
They now have to win their remaining three games to be sure of the title, with Burnley, Leicester and Brighton their upcoming opposition.
Manchester United, on the other hand, faces a difficult requirement to reach the top four with the defeat, leaving them in sixth and three points behind Chelsea, who are in last place in the Champions League.
