Manchester City 2 - 3 Manchester United

It was not one of the best performance by United but it was one of those games that the forwards have been very on target and on form...

The game was started with City dominating....it was as though United were going to go through a torrid night....but at 16 minute, a simple pass from Young and Rooney immediately shot pass through Clichy and gets the shot away...it was a rather soft one but Joe Hart could only managed to watch on as United go on for the lead...

It wasn't long before Rooney added in another goal for United, making him the youngest to score 150 goals in the Premier League.

The second half started with Tevez coming on for Balotelli. It was one of those games that Balotelli couldn't really perform and Mancini was right to bring on Tevez....the game continued with City dominating without any clear cut chances....

Then, Van Persie made an amazing shot that hit the bar and while Young actually rebound and scored, the officials ruled it out as offside...Replays shown otherwise though...
but it was after this decision that City made an attack that resulted in their first goal...De Gea managed to block shots from Aguero and Tevez, but couldn't denied Yaya Toure from scoring the first goal...after the goal, it was all fast paced with City kept coming at United most of the time...

Dzeko came on in the 83rd minute, replacing Toure....so often the supersub for City, one would expect something from the Bosnian but it was Pablo Zabaleta that scored the equalizer....

City continued attacking with Tevez missed out on a few chances....then there was the foul against Rafael by Tevez just outside the penalty box....Van Persie stepped up to take the free kick and a slight deflection reflected in United winning goal...

A sensational stoppage time goal by Van Persie

Then, things got ugly during the celebration...some City fans threw objects and hit United's defender, Ferdinand...he was bleeding because of that...



To make things worse, a City fan ran towards the field to confront Ferdinand...
Joe Hart halted the fan and the scene turned pretty ugly...




When Citizens became Hooligans...
It was a great win for United....6 points lead over the nearest rival, City...that's good to know but given the way the game ended, this surely will intensify the rivalry between the two Manchesters...
