Both teams were tentative to start with City the stronger team as the half wore on.  De Gea produced two stunning saves to deny Navas and Aguero.  

The game changed after Smalling was sent off for a second yellow in the 38th minute.  City started the second half all guns blazing and eventually the inevitable goal came in the 63rd minute, scored by Aguero.

All credit to Man United as they never gave up and gave City some scares in last twenty minutes, notably when Hart saved brilliantly from a Di Maria shot.  Fellaini also had two great headed chances which he could not direct on target.

02 Nov 16:20

02 Nov 16:13

02 Nov 15:59
28' Toure blasts the free kick well over the bar.  He will be disappointed with that.
02 Nov 15:58

  • 65'

    What do United do here? Do they have to go for damage limitation or do they attack and hope for the best?

  • 63'

    CITY TAKE THE LEAD. Toure plays in Clichy brilliantly, and he too, delivers a good cross to Aguero, who was never going to miss. Smashing home on the half volley from 10 yards.

  • 61'

    Gorgeous delivery into the box by Di Maria that forces Hart to remain rooted to his line. McNair wasn't too far away from it at the back post.

  • 60'

  • 43'

    Michael Carrick comes on for Januzaj.

  • 40'

    Milner takes the free-kick but it evades everyone of his teammates. De Gea was in no man's land then so any contact would have resulted in a goal

  • 26'

    For the time being United have weathered the storm. They have managed to check City and slow them down, their ball retention has also improved.

    Martin Demichelis with a crucial interception. If he had missed Shaw's cross Van Persie would have had a brilliant shooting chance.

    City are starting to turn the screw here.

  • 21'

    Brilliant save by De Gea to deny Navas from close range. Absolutely superb.

  • 18'

    Marcos Rojo hacks down Aguero. He should have received a yellow for that but Oliver thinks otherwise.

    Adnan Januzaj with a chance after a Robin van Persie knock down. Unfortunately for United he didn't catch it at all well and it goes wide of the mark.

  • 8'

    David de Gea makes a good save at his near post to deny Sergio Aguero's rasping effort.

  • 4'

    Luke Shaw gets left for dead by Jesus Navas but Spaniard cannot punish United. His cross was poor and went out for a goal kick.
