Manchester United 1-6 Manchester City – Highlights

Manchester City inflicted derby humiliation on Manchester United with a 6-1 Premier League victory at Old Trafford.

Mario Balotelli scored twice and drew the foul that got Jonny Evans sent off – an incident that prompted an astonishing second-half collapse from United.

Evans saw red at 1-0, and shortly afterwards Balotelli plundered his second. Sergio Aguero added a third, before Edin Dzeko scored twice and David Silva once in a chaotic finale.

Darren Fletcher netted a lone reply for United, who conceded six in a home league game for the first time since 1930, when Newcastle went one better in a 7-4 win.

City now lead United by five points, but the symbolism of the result resonates far beyond the Premier League table. This felt like a changing of the guard, as the noisy neighbours stormed United’s back garden.
