  1. The referee ends the match after a remarkable conclusion. Van Persie won the match for United with a late free-kick but there will be plenty more said about the problems that followed from the crowd after the winner. Stay with us for all the reaction.

  2. 90+5

    Barry is booked for a late challenge on Rooney. Not long left now.

  3. 90+4

    The game gets back under way after the goal and the disappointing scenes that followed. City have the ball near to the United box but can't create a chance.

  4. 90+3

    Not great scenes here now. It looks like Ferdinand has been hit by an object thrown from the crowd. He has a cut just above his left eye. A City fan then made his way on the pitch before being escorted off the field.

  5. 90+2

    GOAL VAN PERSIE! Van Persie's free-kick takes a deflection and beats Hart at his right hand post to put United back ahead. The away side lead 3-2 right at the end of this clash.

  6. 90+2

    Rafael is knocked over by Tevez to give United a free-kick on the edge of the box.

  7. 90+1

    We are in the first of four minutes of additional time.

  8. 90

    Silva makes space for a shot and his low effort from 12 yards is stopped by De Gea.

  9. 89

    Tevez concedes a free-kick in the United box as he knocks Smalling to the ground. The forward shows plenty of frustration but it can't be doubted just how much of an impact he's made on this match.

  10. 88

    United react to the equaliser by making a change as Cleverley is replaced by Danny Welbeck.

  11. 87

    We are now level here at 2-2. Expect more drama before this match is done.

  12. 86

    GOAL ZABALETA! The corner isn't properly cleared by United and Zabaleta takes advantage to fire home a half-volley from just inside the box. Great finish from the defender to pull City level.

  13. 86

    Dzeko is denied an immediate impact by a great challenge. City have a corner.

  14. 85

    United also make a change with Phil Jones replacing Valencia.

  15. 84

    Yaya Toure's match is over now as we welcome Dzeko to the field.

  16. 83

    Still so much left to happen in this match. Both sides look like they could strike again and the tempo is really high.

  17. 82

    Valencia takes the ball away from Zabaleta down the right but the defender recovers and wins the ball back for City. The hosts break.

  18. 81

    Might be time for Edin Dzeko soon. Yaya Toure seems to have got back in with the flow of the game.

  19. 80

    The corner is cleared and United break. Frustration for Rooney as he fails to win a free-kick on the edge of the box. Looks like the correct call from the referee.

  20. 79

    Somehow De Gea is able to deny Silva. The United goalkeeper denies the City man with a touch that takes the ball on to the bar and behind for a goalkeeper.
