Manchester United 1 – Manchester City 2 (Premier League, April 8, 2013) (Alternative highlights & longer highlights.) David Silva was booked in the 29th minute for handling a shot in the United box. City took the lead in the 51st minute when Samir Nasri lead an attack into the United box and James Milner thumped home a (deflected) beauty from the edge of the box. United levelled in the 59th minute when Van Persie free-kick was headed on to Vincent Kompany by Phil Jones and the ball bounced in. In the 78th minute City retook the lead through a superb top corner stunner from, who else, Sergio Aguero.
In the tunnel: Evra hugs his son, Van Persie & Nasri give each other love.

Phil Jones, face puller.
1-1. Kompany og draws United level.
City go ahead. 0-1
Arsenal chums for life.
We hope that’s Evra’s son!

Peter Schmeichel. Always red.
This is simply unacceptable.
A lot of people seem to have bought half ‘n half scarves at Old Trafford for the Manchester Derby. #wrongwrongwrong

A couple of Opta tweets to chew on.
2 – Man Utd (W25 D2) & Man City (W18 D2) are 2 of the 3 teams yet to lose in the PL when they’ve taken the lead this season. Grip. #derbyday

73 – Man Utd have gone longer without a 0-0 league draw than any other club in the top four divisions (AFC Wimbledon 2nd on 58). Gusto.
