Stay with us as we've got the match report, social media reaction and a special report from a City live event from across the pond.

Just a reminder...


FULL TIME: A brilliant result for the blues who take the Manchester Derby.


Final score: City 3-1 United

A brilliant team goal for the blues, ending with the German midfielder slipping the ball under De Gea into the net. 3-1

GOAL: Surely that's a Derby win for City as Gundogan makes it 3-1

How are your nerves, City fans? Getting a little scary, we need a third goal please City 2-1

Gundogan comes on and Aguero comes off. Sterling now up front 2-1

AAARRGGHHH. Sane over the bar, 3 against 2 and that would have sealed it. 2-1

Sane on and has a free kick but cleared 2-1

This is just too nervy. At 2-0 we were cruising, but a rush of blood by Ederaon gave United a lifeline. 2-1

Need to put this game to bed. Ederson reckless as last week against Southampton. Cannot keep doing that City

Goal: United back in it as Martial scores. 2-1

Penalty to United:Ederson brings down Lukaku and United have a chance to get back into it

11th goal of the season for Aguero 2-0

GOAL: Aguerooooooo makes it 2-0, smashed past De Gea. Come on you blues

Kick-off: The second half begins. COME ON City 1-0

Blues are in front, but United have been stronger in the second half in recent games. City need to get another couple of goals in the second half and take any hope of a United comeback away. 1-0

Half time. Blues have dominated possession and looked to be ready to blow United away. Only the one goal so far.

City 1-0 United

Aarrrgghh, Aguero fires into the side netting. 1-0

The game has slowed and United have come more into it but are yet to register a shot on target. 1-0

United threatening a little after that initial flurry from City, but Smalling's header is over the bar.

Need a second blues. 1-0

Blues deservedly take the lead through Silva after just 13 minutes. Blues all over United at the moment. 1-0

GOAL: First blood to City as David Silva slots home. 1-0

Lots of early pressure from City but no goals yet. 0-0

Kick off: Away we go in the Derby. Come on City

Less than half an hour to go, how are your nerves holding up, blues?

There have been 21 Premier League derbies at City, with the blues winning just seven. I know, feels like more doesn't it? United have won 11 with just two draws, not bnb of the 0-0. It would be surprising if we got a 0-0 today.

Although Pep Guardiola has won both derbies at Old Trafford, he is yet to beat the reds at home, with one draw and one defeat. Will today be the day?
