Classic highlights: City 1-0 United 2014

On this day in 2014 Sergio Aguero scored the only goal of the game as Manchester City claimed the bragging rights over Manchester United.

City are back in derby action this weekend, when we make the short journey to Old Trafford for the latest instalment of the famous fixture and, ahead of that game, you can relive a memorable win from seven years ago.


In former Reds’ boss Louis Van Gaal’s first derby, Chris Smalling was sent off before half-time in a feisty affair.

The defender picked up two bookings, the first for charging down Joe Hart’s clearance and the second for a foul on James Milner and Manuel Pellegrini’s side made the visitors pay at the Etihad Stadium.

Yaya Toure started the move which led to the breakthrough, picking a hole in the United defence which allowed Gael Clichy to cut back for Aguero, who fired a powerful drive past David De Gea to secure all three points.
