City took a 2-0 lead into half-time thanks to goals from Vincent Kompany and Ilkay Gundogan, knowing a win would secure the Premier League title.

Disregarding the fact that the widely anticipated fixture passed without much drama, the Red Devils got back at their opponents, remembering what happened in the reverse fixture.

In response to The Sun, Mourinho's males moreover goaded their rivals on the pitch as two strikes from Paul Pogba and a victor by Chris Smalling earned a memorable win.

The Manchester United Supporters' Trust has urged club officials to make the stadium "the largest in Europe", saying fans "deserve no less", amid reports the capacity at Old Trafford could be increased to 88 000.

And there was controversy after the game when City and United players clashed in the changing rooms which led to a now infamous tunnel melee.
