– to find meandering levels of commitment in the Manchester United midfield, and you could be forgiven for concluding United’s post-imperial decline is now complete. Ten years on from Alex Ferguson’s airy dismissal of City as brash and vulgar parvenus this is apparently United’s status now: only the second toughest late-season obstacle – after Burnley away – in their neighbours’ procession to a successive Premier League title.
