Yellow Card Pablo Zabaleta
Yellow Card Gareth Barry
Yellow Card Carlos Tévez
Another yellow card here and this time Mike Dean puts Tevez's name into the book.
Goal Sergio Agüero
GOAL! Aguero with a stunning effort for City! Just as the home fans were raising their noise levels in encouragement of their side, a fantastic individual goal from Aguero has absolutely stunned United and put the visitors ahead. The Argentine received the ball several yards from goal and twisted and turned to beat several defenders in Red. Eventually, he found himself a couple of metres from goal and thumped a well calculated shot into the roof of the net from a tight angle.
Own Goal Vincent Kompany
GOAL! UNITED! Van Persie whipped a thunderous curling free kick in and Jones got his head on the ball. There may be some debate about the eventual scorer, though, as the defender's touch sent the ball onto Kompany and then went in. It may go down as an own goal.
Goal James Milner
GOAL! James Milner rockets Manchester City into the lead here at Old Trafford! Great build-up play from Nasri and Tevez ends with Milner receiving the ball in the area and the England midfielder powers a great strike towards goal that takes a slight deflection off Jones before hitting the back of the net.
Yellow Card Vincent Kompany
Yellow Card Wayne Rooney
BOOKED! Now Rooney enters the book for a very late challenge on Milner. With two feet in the air from the England striker, United can perhaps consider themselves lucky not to be down to 10 men.
Yellow Card David Silva
BOOKED! David Silva is booked in the area for a handball after the Spaniard handles Zabaleta's incoming cross.
