That is all folks, thank you for choosing Sport24 to catch this epic Premier League encounter between Manchester City and Manchester United.

See you in two weeks after the international break.

Have a great Sunday!

11 Nov 20:34
City humiliate and frustrate United at the Ethihad. Revenge for April's defeat? Could be but Pep's side are back on top of the Premier League with Mourinho's Red Devils stuck in eighth as the we go into the international break. 
11 Nov 20:24
93' FULL-TIME: Manchester City 3-1 Manchester United
11 Nov 20:20
91' David Silva comes off for Phil Foden ...
11 Nov 20:19
90' THREE minutes of stoppage time added on
11 Nov 20:18
88' PENALTY!? Silva plays a through ball towards Sane in the 18th area, who is flattened by Smalling. Shouts from every City player but the referee waves play on.
11 Nov 20:17
Simply beautiful that third goal after holding on to the ball for a lengthy period. City deserved lead. 
11 Nov 20:16
That settles it for sure. Gundogan taps in from close by.
11 Nov 20:15
11 Nov 20:14
84' City keeping a firm shape with their formation as they hold onto the ball. United failing to get a grip of the ball.
11 Nov 20:12
81' CHANCE! Gundogan is teed up by Sterling and the German attempts to curl the ball around De Gea but his shot is well wide.
11 Nov 20:10
79' City frustrating United as they doing incredibly well with holding onto the ball. Gundogan, Silva and Fernandinho doing damage with Sane getting the better of Young. 
11 Nov 20:08
77' Mendy wins a foul off Sanchez deep inside City territory, although the Chilean looks as if he thought he was going to get the free-kick following that tangle. To be fair, he had a case.
11 Nov 20:05
75' Another City change: Ilkay Gundogan comes on for Sergio Aguero.
11 Nov 20:04
74' Poor from United's midfield as they lose the ball with City breaking through Sterling. The Englisman, and as he finds himself in the corner he whips in a low cross towards Sane. The German has go at goal but his effort is over the cross bar.
11 Nov 20:01
72' As predicted, Mata comes on for Herrera with Sanchez replacing Rashford.
11 Nov 20:00
70' Fernandinho has another crack at goal, but there's not enough power on this effort from relatively long range. Comfortable save for de Gea to make.
11 Nov 20:00
70' Mata and Sanchez warming up ... who will come on or will both grace the Ethihad field.
11 Nov 19:59
69' Sane has made an impact on this game since coming on. He's proving difficult for United to get off the ball.
11 Nov 19:59
67' And now Fernandinho goes for goal from range after being teed up outside the box by Sane. That's a good strike, but de Gea makes the save and holds on.
11 Nov 19:51
62' Immediate change from Pep sees Sane replace Mahrez with Sterling moving to the right flank.
11 Nov 19:50
61' City fans sounding extremely nervous now. 
11 Nov 19:49
60' A first touch for Lukaku ends up being a goal. Good substitute. Bit of impetus now from United.
11 Nov 19:48

Ederson brings down Lukaku in the penalty area and Martial slots home from the spot kick.

City 2-1 United

11 Nov 19:48
11 Nov 19:46
55' Lukaku replaces Lingard
11 Nov 19:43
52' In April earlier this year. City were 2-0 up and we know what happened. Could it happen again is the question?
11 Nov 19:41
50' Perhaps De Gea could have saved it after seeing the replay but that was a ferocious strike. 
11 Nov 19:38

Take a bow Sergio Aguero. What a strike. But De Gea could have done better.

City 2-0 United!

11 Nov 19:37
11 Nov 19:35
45' Second-half is underway ...
11 Nov 19:28

David Silva's fourth derby goal separates the two sides.

Can United comeback?

11 Nov 19:18
45' After a minute of stoppage time, the referee blows his whistle for HALF-TIME!
11 Nov 19:14
42' Shaw is booked for a foul on Mahrez.
11 Nov 19:12
39' Rashford plays a fine reverse pass for Martial, who takes a fraction too long and allows Fernandinho to block his shot.
11 Nov 19:10
36' United'front three seem frustrated. Lukaku might be coming on earlier than expected in the second-half in things continue like this.
11 Nov 19:09
35' The pace of the game not really the same as the start of the match, which does not really suit City. United seeing more of the ball with City attempting to break United's defence once more.
11 Nov 19:07

Attempts at goal: City 6 United 2

On target: City 2 United 0

11 Nov 19:05
33' Bernardo Silva throws himself at Rashford and gets a yellow card ...
11 Nov 19:04
31' Martial and Rashford struggling so far ...
11 Nov 19:04
30' City still seeing more of the ball but United faring well with their attack. Shaw and Young doing particularly great with going forward and defending. 
11 Nov 19:01
28' Matic passes to Young, who looks up to see Rashford gunning forward but as he goes in search of space he brings Stones down and the referee blows his whistle.
11 Nov 18:59
25' CHANCE! Martial’s shot from 20 yards is blocked by Stones. The Frenchman could easily have played the pass towards Rashford but went for goal. Can't blame him, his been scoring from that sort of position for three games now. 
11 Nov 18:57
24' Too lackadaisical from Herrera as Aguero presses the midfielder and steals it from the Spaniard. Aguero darts forward with pace and could well score or at least get a shot on target but slips before pulling the trigger. 
11 Nov 18:54
22' Mahrez and Bernardo doing particularly well in getting the better of Luke Shaw at the moment. Martial not doing much with tracking back. He needs to track back.
11 Nov 18:52
20' Manchester City 1-0 Manchester United
11 Nov 18:52
19' Mourinho in his dugout writing down notes ...
11 Nov 18:51
18' United, finally getting to knock the ball around. Good spell of passing but City are pressing them with each pass.
11 Nov 18:48

15' Possession: City 86% - 14% United

For a Derby this looks rather disturbing ...

11 Nov 18:46
14' City now just rampaging through United now ... attack after attack. United need to get a few string of passes. 
  • 904'

    FULL-TIME: MANCHESTER CITY 3-1 MANCHESTER UNITED. City have frustrated and humiliated United this evening. That's revenge for United's win in April. Guardiola's side goes top, while Mourinho's stays eighth.

  • 902'

    David Silva, who scored the opener for City, makes way for the young Phil Foden.

  • 901'

    We're into three minutes of stoppage time. United have traditionally been known for their late comebacks, but it won't be easy against one of the greatest teams, if not the greatest, in the Premier League era.

  • 88'

    Sane goes down in the penalty area, claiming to have been blocked off by Smalling. No foul -- neither a penalty or a free-kick. The initial contact looked as if it was outside the box, but it might have carried on into it. He did make the most of it.

  • 86'

    GOAL, CITY, GUNDOGAN! 3-1: After a well-orchestrated, patient build-up, Gundogan gives the ball to Sterling, who lays it back for Bernardo Silva to cross. Gundogan breaks free of Matic, meets the ball, and beats de Gea from close range!

  • 85'

    City are just keeping possession, doing what teams managed by Pep Guardiola always do best. United need to catch them off guard, and that's no small task.

  • 81'

    Sterling tees Gundogan up and he goes for goal from right outside the box. However, the effort goes well wide.

  • 77'

    Mendy wins a foul off Sanchez deep inside City territory, although the Chilean looks as if he thought he was going to get the free-kick following that tangle. To be fair, he had a case.

  • 76'

    Aguero makes way to a warm send-off from the home supporters. Gundogan is on in his place, with Guardiola perhaps looking to add numbers in midfield.

  • 74'

    City hit United on the counter and Sane gets the ball just outside the box. He decides to have a crack at goal. However, he misses the target by some distance.

  • 73'

    Herrera makes way after what was a nightmare performance for him. Mata is on in his place. Sanchez is also on, in place of Rashford.

  • 70'

    Fernandinho has another crack at goal, but there's not enough power on this effort from relatively long range. Comfortable save for de Gea to make.

  • 69'

    Sane has made an impact on this game since coming on. He's proving difficult for United to get off the ball.

  • 67'

    And now Fernandinho goes for goal from range after being teed up outside the box by Sane. That's a good strike, but de Gea makes the save and holds on.

  • 66'

    United's momentum appears to have been somewhat stifled again. David Silva lines up a long-range shot, but it's blocked. A third goal for City would be so important.

  • 62'

    Guardiola, perhaps sensing the need for change, brings Sane on in place of Mahrez. The German's pace on the break is bound to be a threat to United.

  • 61'

    All of a sudden, the complexion of this game has changed completely. United are doing the attacking. The City fans were lapping up every pass a few minutes ago. Now, the mood inside the Etihad is far more nervous.

  • 58'

    GOAL, UNITED, MARTIAL! 2-1: Martial sends Ederson the wrong way and rolls the ball into the net. Game on!

  • 57'

    PENALTY! Immediate impact from Lukaku, who takes the ball round Ederson and draws a foul from the City keeper!

  • 57'

    Lingard makes way to a chorus of boos and is replaced by Lukaku, who will be hungry for a goal after failing to make the starting XI.

  • 55'

    Sterling is played in behind the United defence, but once again, he takes too long to pull the trigger. Smalling does well to get across and in his way.

  • 52'

    It's a long way back from here for United. De Gea, whose form perhaps hasn't quite been at its best this season, will be kicking himself. Not only could he perhaps have done better with Aguero's shot, but also his kick to Lingard in the build-up.

  • 48'

    GOAL, CITY, AGUERO! 2-0: Brilliant! Lingard loses the ball in midfield to Fernandinho, allowing City onto the attack. Aguero plays a one-two off Mahrez and rifles the ball into the net! De Gea perhaps should have done better.

  • 46'

    KICK-OFF! Lingard gets the ball rolling for the second half. United were poor in the first half, but they're still in this game. No half-time substitutions from either side to report on.

  • 452'

    HALF-TIME: MANCHESTER CITY 1-0 MANCHESTER UNITED. David Silva's opener separates Manchester's two giants at half-time. Since scoring that early goal, City haven't been particularly impressive, but they remain in the driving seat.

  • 451'

    Only one minute of stoppage time has been added on at the end of the first half.

  • 44'

    Herrera is caught in possession again and City surge forward. Bernardo Silva plays the pass to Aguero, but he fires into the side-netting.

  • 42'

    Shaw barges into Mahrez and picks up a deserved yellow card for it. That challenge was clumsy at best and cynical at worst. The United left-back actually appears to have hurt himself while making it, mind you.

  • 39'

    Martial takes the ball into the box after receiving the pass from Rashford and has a crack at goal, but Fernandinho is there to block. City perhaps aren't quite at their best, but they're not letting United create much.

  • 35'

    Aguero and Sterling link up, but the England international's half-shot at the end of that move is a weak one. Comfortable save for de Gea.

  • 33'

    Bernardo Silva lunges in late on Rashford and picks up a yellow card.

  • 31'

    Manchester City have not quite been as dominant since scoring as they were in the opening minutes. Laporte has a long-range shot at goal, but he doesn't catch the ball cleanly and fires way over the target.

  • 29'

    Rashford controls a long ball aimed in his direction by Young, but he's fouled Stones in the process. Frustration for the young England striker.

  • 26'

    Smalling meets a cross in from the right, but he fails to get over the ball and his header goes over the target.

  • 24'

    Just as United were beginning to enjoy some time on the ball, Aguero robs Herrera of it and races away. United recover once again, but Herrera is really struggling today.

  • 20'

    Sir Alex Ferguson is at the Etihad today -- watching on with a concerned expression while his former team struggles to keep pace with City. One wonders what he would have done up against Guardiola's juggernaut.

  • 17'

    Sterling pinches the ball off Herrera in midfield and charges forward, but the Spaniard chases back and wins it back off him after he takes too long to pull the trigger.

  • 13'

    City have their tails up now. Mahrez looks to slip Bernardo Silva in and he fires for goal, but there's a United player there to block the shot.

  • 12'

    GOAL, CITY, D. SILVA! 1-0: That goal has been coming! City have been almost monopolising possession. Silva hammers home from close range after a wonderful build-up! Bernardo teed him up by meeting Sterling's cross and pulling back.

  • 9'

    Aguero meets Mahrez's corner and heads for goal. Young blocks the effort, but the whistle has gone anyway. The Argentine striker has fouled Herrera.

  • 7'

    Sterling gets in behind on the left now. Smalling recovers, but City have a corner. David Silva takes and Fellaini heads clear.

  • 4'

    Fantastic ball from Fernandinho again. He plays David Silva in behind on the left side of the box. However, there's a mix-up between Bernardo and Aguero as the Spaniard looks to tee a team-mate up for the shot. Mahrez shoots from range. Off target.

  • 2'

    CLOSE! Bernardo Silva receives the ball from Fernandinho. From just outside the box, he lets fly. Not a bad strike and not a long way off target, but no problem for David de Gea.

  • 1'

    KICK-OFF! Anthony Taylor blows his whistle. Manchester City get the ball rolling through David Silva. We should be in for a cracking game.

  • 0'

    There's a pre-match handshake between Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho. They need no introduction to one another. Two of the greats of modern football management will be pitting their wits against one another in a matter of minutes.

  • 0'

    The two teams make their way out of the tunnel at the Etihad Stadium. They're greeted by a cracking atmosphere. All of Manchester is watching -- and much of the world beyond it.

  • 0'

    Earlier today, Liverpool went top for the time being with a 2-0 victory over Fulham, while Chelsea have just been held to a 0-0 draw by Liverpool's Merseyside rivals, Everton. City thus head into this game in second, needing a draw to go first again.

  • 0'

    Anthony Taylor is today's referee. He was born in Wythenshawe, near Manchester, and so he'll know how important this derby is. His assistants are Adam Nunn and Gary Beswick, with Craig Pawson the fourth official.

  • 0'

    The headline news from the teamsheets: Paul Pogba misses out for United today due to injury, while Romelu Lukaku has been left on the bench. Despite his midweek hat-trick for City, Gabriel Jesus makes way for Sergio Aguero.

  • 0'

    MANCHESTER UNITED STARTING XI: De Gea, Young (C), Smalling, Lindelof, Shaw, Matic, Herrera, Fellaini, Lingard, Rashford, Martial. SUBS: Romero, Darmian, Jones, Fred, Mata, Sanchez, Lukaku.

  • 0'

    MANCHESTER CITY STARTING XI: Ederson, Walker, Stones, Laporte, Mendy, Fernandinho, Silva (C), Mahrez, Bernardo, Sterling, Aguero. SUBS: Muric, Kompany, Gundogan, Delph, Sane, Jesus, Foden.
