MANCHESTER CITY 0 - 0 MANCHESTER UNITED

United came for a draw, or a probable 1-0 win, and got what they wanted. They put men behind the ball, and City simply kept shooting blanks. Jose Mourinho v Pep Guardiola ends 1-1-0 in their first season together next season. 

Oh, and Fellaini is going to get his hair ripped out by Mourinho in the box - you just know that. What an eedjitt. 

That was a decently entertaining match to cover.. thanks for reading, Anirudh Menon signing out..

Toodle-ooo
...
97' Toure swings one in and Jesus wins a corner off Blind. Corner for City... it misses everyone in the box - and the ball rolls away...
...
95' OH MY LORD! AGUERO! ALMOST! DE BRUYNE SWINGS IN A SODDING BRILLIANT BALL THAT AGUERO SLIDES ONTO BUT SIMPLY CAN'T DIRECT IT TOWARD GOAL... WHAT A CHANCE!
...
94' City are still passing it around in the unhurried fashion of an ersatz Barcelona... till the ball is worked out to Jesus Navas who smashes a ball in - Blind does superbly to cover Gabriel Jesus, and it's a goal kick. 
...
93' Rashford walks off the field with deliberate slowness as Ashley Young comes on in his stead. The young man worked his socks off today.
...
91' GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOFFFSIDE!!!!!! Aguero skins Bailly and picks out Jesus in the box, and his header is unnerring. The lineman's flag is unerring too - the Brazilian had strayed a yard offside. 
...
90' Valencia collects the ball ahead of Jesus, but his smash upfield finds naught but Otamendi. United are getting hurried here and the clearances are getting increasingly frantic. THERE WILL BE SIX MINUTES OF ADDED TIME. 
...
88' Kolarov goes down under a shoulder push from Valencia, and he demands a penalty. Nothing having. There's a bit of afters as Jesus dives in late on Rashford. That's a yellow for the Brazilian.  
...
86'  Jesus (Navas) drifts one into (Gabriel) Jesus, but Bailly heads it clear. City are circling in, though, as they tighten the noose. 
...
85' Henrikh Mkhitaryan's hard working night has been cut short as he's sacrificed for Timothy Fosu-Mensah. Pep, smelling blood, hurls on Jesus Navas for Raheem Sterling. 
...
83' OH FELLAINI! OH FELLAINI! He gets into a tangle with Aguero once again AND HEAD BUTTS THE ARGENTINE RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE REFEREE - AND THAT IS A RED CARD! OH BLOODY HELL! What an absolutely moronic moment from a man of such experience.  
...
83' Fellaini takes out Aguero with unceremonious bustle and that's a yellow
...
82' Mkhitaryan sprints in behind Kolarov but his dink into the box is too high even for the imposing figure of Fellaini. Fernandinho, though, shins the ball away into touch and United have the ball. 
...
81' Manchester United could have so used Paul Pogba here. As my colleague Soumalya Moitra has just pointed out, the Frenchman is so good in tight passes. 
...
80' Substitutions aplenty - Claudio Bravo is taken off for Willy Cabellero, Leroy Sane is hooked for the magnificent blue eyes of Jesus Navas and just so that's he's not outdone Jose Mourinho takes off Anthony Martial (who gets a fatherly hug from the gaffer) for Jesse Lingard.
...
77' Stat of the day: United have spent 51.69% of the opening 20 minutes of the second half inside their own defensive third. Just six touches in the final third. Yeah, adventure thy name is Manchester United
...
76' Wait a minute - wait a minute. I knew this was too good to be true. The Chilean numero uno seems to have pulled his left calf in the process of aforementioned comfortable gathering of the ball, and he may just be going off! Oh Claudio you poor sod!
...
75' Rashford swings it in and Claudio Bravo gathers it comfortably. YES. COMFORTABLY. I kid you not
...
74' Blind plays in a nice little ball that Martial does well to keep alive. The Frenchman then does well to lay it off to Herrera who in turn does well to win a corner. 
...
73'OH! Rashford tackles Otamendi before pushing the ball around Kompany and away he goes.... but the wily old fox that is Pablo Zabaleta has seen it coming from a mile off and is on hand to intercept.  
...
72' Man City are being kept at arms length here but the Citizens are all channeling their inner Xavi as they patiently pass the ball around awaiting an opening. 
...
70' Sterling whizzes past Darmian and smashes it with his left foot - but De Gea is behind it all the way! United try their hand at this passing business - but Martial's sense of adventure and love for a good dribble sees the ball back at the feet of City
 
...
69' It's still City's ball, though, and Blind has to be on his toes to keep out a De Bruyne curler. City proceed to pass-pass-pass
...
67' The second corner comes to nothing, and Mkhitaryan does well to win a freekick just outside his own box. Fernandinho then smashes into Darmian and the guests on the day can gather some breath as Atkinson blows his whistle so that the Italian can get some treatment. 
...
66' OH OTAMENDI!!! OH BAILLY! Sane whips in a lovely ball and Bailly does well to ensure his noggin' is in the way of Otamendi's on-target header. OH MY!
...
65' Sane and Kolarov try to whip balls in, but nothing is getting past these red ramparts. Kolarov's ball is unceremoniously scythed away for a corner by Herrera....
...
63' Yaya Toure tries to Yaya Toure his way into the box, but Eric Bailly is not letting his senior compatriot get away with bullying him - and does exceptionally well to put in a recovery tackle that takes the ball away from Toure
...
62' United are inviting City deeper and deeper and deeper... and City are obliging their neighbours. The ball is ALL City's. 
...
61' United make a rare foray into the City half and Martial wins a freekick off Zabaleta. Herrera's too anxious to play in Rashford, though, and the quick freekick gifts the ball to City. 
...
60' De Bruyne drifts away from Carrick with a lazy elegance that makes you wonder what in the hell made Chelsea sell him off, but his good work is negated by Sterling having wandered offside
...
59' Manchester United are playing with fire here. Once again, United don't clear their lines (Valencia the culprit this time) and Aguero gets all the space he could ever ask for in the United box. Inexplicably, once again, he smashes it well over. United simply can't afford to let the Argentine get so many shots on goal...
...
58' de Bruyne smashes one from a way off, but Bailly gets a nick on it and the ball only ripples the side netting. He then proceeds to swing in arguably the worst corner of his career. That one almost made it's way back to Old Trafford. 
...
57' Herrera is pick pocketed by Sane... who wriggles his way into the box only to run into Antonio Valencia. He goes down, obviously looking for a penalty, but Atkinson correctly asks him to dust the grass off his backside and get on with it. Herrera then shouts at the German for what he perceives as diving. Kettle, black!
...
55' Sane has a pop after an inadvertent flick on from Fellaini (who had just done magnificently to take it off the forehead of Kompany).. but there's just too much red in the United box for the ball to make it's way through. 
...
54' Martial loses his footing, and then the ball to Sterling and pushes him off it in frustration. De Bruyne stands over the ball in a dangerous position...
...
53' Kolarov eases into some space on the left, but his curling cross is straight at De Gea. The Spaniard tries to release Rashford early, but that man Otamendi is at it again. City try a small break of their own. but another superb sliding tackle from Bailly keeps a flying Leroy Sane at bay.
...
52' City pass the ball around in the typical Guardiola style and United are so very comfortable with that. Even Martial is shadowing Zabaleta as every United man stands behind the ball.
...
50' Herrera sees the ball trickling towards him, and with acres of space in front of him, his eyes light up. Just as his right foot connects with the ball, though, the immense figure of Otamendi is upon him and his shot is blocked away. 
...
49' Aguero and that ridiculously magnificent low-centre-of-gravity of his manage to find space where there is precious little, but he can't get enough behind his shot and it's another comfortable save for De Gea.
...
48' United push forward, but Otamendi bullies Rashford off the ball again and sparks another City attack; Aguero motors into the box but is forced wide... he moves it onto Sane - who's dink into the far post is just a touch overhit for the onrushing Fernandinho
