WATCH: All The Goals And Reaction From A Pulsating Manchester Derby

First blood to City...

City Win

It was billed as José Mourinho versus Pep Guardiola and it was the latter who left Old Trafford with the three points.

Here's how the first Manchester Derby of the season played out...  

They came from far and wide...

The players entered the fray...

As the fans awaited kick-off... 

City flew out of the blocks...

And it was they who got the breakthrough...

United weren't in the game at all...

Frustrations boiled over on the sideline between Guardiola and Rooney...

Before things got better for City and worse for United...

There was a lifeline for the Red Devils before half-time...

Before a breathless first half came to an end...

Mourinho switched things up for United...

And it appeared to be working...

United were denied a penalty...

Judge for yourselves...

Then Rashford, as well as everyone else, thought he had equalised...

The drama continued...

One last throw of the dice for United...

Five minutes of added time...

Before the full time whistle went. First blood in Manchester this season goes to City and Pep Guardiola...

While United were left licking their wounds...

The neutrals loved it...

And that was that. City top of the league. But we are only four games in...
