Manchester City and Manchester United faced off in the latest Manchester derby of the season on Sunday.
Man City headed into the tie knowing they needed to win to ensure they kept some distance between themselves and Liverpool who beat West Ham on Saturday.
As for United, they kicked off at the Etihad knowing that they had to win to climb back into the top-four for the time being after Arsenal had overtaken them by beating Watford 3-2 in the day’s early kick-off.
