Man City 0-1 Man Utd Highlights
Wayne Rooney’s first-half goal gave Manchester United victory over rivals Manchester City in an eventful derby.
United were dominant early on but City came closest to scoring when Stephen Ireland hit the outside of a post.
Rooney followed up Michael Carrick’s shot to break the deadlock but City had hope when Cristiano Ronaldo’s handball saw him sent off for a second booking.
Richard Dunne had a shot cleared off the line for City but Joe Hart did superbly to keep out a late Rooney lob.
Hart, who had joined City’s attack for an injury-time corner, ran the length of the pitch as United broke and got back to his goal just in time to deny Rooney his second goal of the game.
