  2. Man Utd 1 Man City 2. The visitors take the spoils, three points and local bragging rights. United's lead at the top cut to 12 points.

  3. 90+5

    Final few seconds at Old Trafford. City play the free-kick into Aguero, but he can't hold the ball up. Late chance for United, and Valencia wins a corner. Van Persie takes and Hart gathers Evra's header.

  4. 90+4

    Valencia now booked for sliding into Barry. Both men stretching for the ball.

  5. 90+4

    Another change, with Javi Garcia thrown on in place of Tevez. He is booed from the field by the home support, but cheered from it by the away fans. He is in no rush to get off.

  6. 90+3

    City see the set-piece away. United still pressing, until Giggs loses the ball. City run the ball out with Aguero. He is clipped by Rafael, who becomes the latest to have his name taken. Late flurry of cards and changes.

  7. 90+2

    Another late change, with Young hobbling off and Kagawa introduced. Free-kick finally taken and Lescott nods it behind for a corner.

  8. 90+2

    Zabaleta is booked for the challenge. He did come through the back of Valencia and took his legs away.

  9. 90+1

    Just to clarify, Lescott on in place of Silva. All going on at the moment. With play back underway, Valencia goes down under a tackle from Zabaleta.

  10. Four minutes of stoppage time to be played.

  11. 90

    Arguments still going on. Mike Dean has had a long think about what he is going to do. His decision is...yellow card for Barry. Not sure he was leading that. Silva has gone off. Lescott on.

  12. 89

    Silva down, but United will play on. Rafael with a poor cross and City can put the ball out. Boos from the away support. Aguero and Ferdinand squaring up. Jones gets involved. Players from both sides pile in. Unsightly scenes. United didn't have to put the ball out.

  13. 88

    Van Persie's delivery is met by Jones, but he is reaching for the header and nods wide. Toure did enough to put him off. Solid defending at the other end from Rafael as he nods back to De Gea with Tevez at his back.

  14. 87

    Hernandez involved down by the corner flag. He does well to force Kompany into a clumsy challenge. Free-kick to United wide on their left. Terrible delivery from Young trickles along the floor, but somehow makes it way through the box and behind for a corner.

  15. 86

    Evra forces a throw deep in the City half. United can't work any space. When it does arrive, Carrick goes short into Giggs. He goes wide, and Clichy crashes into Rafael. Tackles still flying around.

  16. 85

    Van Persie with an effort on target, but he fails to trouble Hart with a header from the middle of the box. City can't get anything going in the United half, as Tevez is pulled up for a foul. Before the free-kick is taken, Rooney is replaced by Hernandez.

  17. 84

    Back underway with Zabaleta still not happy. City taking their time with everything now. Hart eventually drills long, over the head of Tevez and behind for a goal kick. Hernandez being readied by United. No surprise there.

  18. 83

    Mancini on his feet and looks a bit more involved than he did earlier. On the field, Zabaleta goes down and gets involved in an exchange of words with Young. The pair are pulled apart.

  19. 82

    Carrick and Giggs combine, and win a free-kick. City pulling plenty of bodies behind the ball. Giggs slips past them and into space inside the box. He feeds the ball through Barry's legs, but Van Persie can only poke wide on the stretch.

  20. 81

    Rooney battling with Milner. He is desperate to get to the ball, but the City man blocks his path, before going down. Free-kick to City. Milner stays down. He would appear to have a touch of cramp - not surprising given the yardage he has out in tonight.
