Only the destination of the Premier League title will once and for all determine the resting place of Mancunian bragging rights in 2012.

United regained some of their self-respect following the 6-1 drubbing at Old Trafford by ending City’s defence of the FA Cup at the first hurdle but it was a huge struggle against a brave and character-filled home side that played a man down for 78 minutes.

Despite a wonderful, pride-bursting second half fight-back this was a tie decided in the first half as the Reds scored three times and the Blues were reduced to ten men when skipper Vincent Kompany was sent off – harshly, if the weight of evidence and opinion is taken into account.
