What was thrown at Man United’s Ashley Young?

Fans took to social media on Saturday during the Manchester derby to fume about an alleged act of racism.

The incident is alleged to have happened against Man United’s Ashley Young.

Early in the match, Young was tracking Raheem Sterling down the United left-hand side.

The ball went out for a throw-in, at which point a yellow object was spotted being thrown from the stands on the Etihad pitch.

Immediately people poured onto social media to claim that Ashley Young had been the target of an act of racism from a Man City supporter.

Young appeared to turn his back at the exact moment the object was thrown on the pitch.

The linesman, however, should have got a clear view of what happened.

If a Man City fan did indeed throw a banana, the Sky Blues could be in trouble.
