Smalling's eight minutes of madness costs United

Man City made their numerical advantage count as Sergio Aguero netted the winner.

MANCHESTER CITY HAVE extended their winning run over their near-neighbours to four games after Sergio Aguero netted the only goal of a fiery Manchester derby on Sunday aftermoon.

The turning point of the game came when Smalling was sent-off shortly before half-time for two yellow cards. The Man United defender gave referee Michael Oliver little choice but to brandish the red card after a rash challenge on James Milner followed a needless booking after obstructing Joe Hart’s attempt to launch a City counter-attack.

City made their numerical advantage count thereafter as they controlled proceedings after the break. The hosts hit the front when Aguero smashed Gael Clichy’s low-cross past David de Gea, who had earlier made two fine saves.
