Man Utd 4-3 Man City – Video Highlights

This has to be the best game of the season so far.

Substitute Michael Owen netted a dramatic injury-time winner as United beat City 4-3 in a pulsating Manchester derby at Old Trafford.

Owen replaced Dimitar Berbatov on 78 minutes and struck with a typically cool finish in the sixth minute of injury time to settle a thrilling match in which City had three times come from behind.

Indeed, Craig Bellamy thought he had snatched a valuable point at the death when he netted his second of the game in the 90th minute, but Owen ensured he will go down in United folklore with an even later strike.

Wayne Rooney had given United the perfect start with the opener after just two minutes only for City to reply through Gareth Barry soon after. A Darren Fletcher brace in the second half twice restored United’s lead with Bellamy maintaining City hope with his first in between.

The result means United move level on points with Chelsea at the top of the table while City’s first defeat of the season saw them remain in fourth – at least until Chelsea meet Spurs in the late kick-off.

That Owen managed to steal the headlines says much for the late drama at Old Trafford, given that the day also marked the return of Carlos Tevez to his former stomping ground.

The Argentine managed to shake off a knee injury to start against his former club but amicable scenes in the tunnel which saw Tevez hugging some of his old team-mates quickly disappeared as he was roundly booed on his entrance into the Old Trafford arena.

His every touch was subsequently jeered by those fans for whom he was an idol not so long ago.

But Tevez, who had said he expected to receive a warm welcome on his return, was not diminished by the reception and, almost inevitably, was heavily involved during an explosive first half.
