Manchester City 4-1 Manchester United – Premier League – 22nd September 2013
David Moyes endured an horrific first Manchester derby on Sunday as he watched his United side thoroughly outplayed by rivials City.
Sergio Aguero netted twice, with his goals bookending strikes by the outstanding Yaya Toure,on the stroke of half-time, and Smir Nasri who scored on 50 minutes.
While City wideboy Jesus Navas enjoyed a fine afternoon, his United counterpart Ashley Young had a right stinker and was hauled off early in the second half.
Wayne Rooney, arguably the only United player to produce a decent performance, netted a superb free-kick late on to become the all-time top-scorer in Manchester derbies (with 11) but overall the visitors were well and truly spanked as Manuel Pellegrini’s charges blossomed at the Etihad.
