    65' Another booking for United - this time Evra, who will now miss the game against Spurs. Both Evra and Rafael are on bookings, both fullbacks - not ideal with 25 mins left to play.

    80' Ten minutes left and Hughes, on the touchline, cuts a frustrated figure shouting instructions to his side.

    83' Berbatov slowly walks off after his number is shown on the substitue board. His slowness is not welcomed by Hughes, or the ref who points to his watch. Giggs coming on!

    89' A late time wasting change for United. Park leaves the game, on comes John O'Shea.

    93' Rooney tries his luck with an audacious shot from 50 yards as Hart races back to his goal. The keeper just manages to get a flailing hand to the shot to deny Rooney a memorable goal.

    Man City 0 United 1

    Cristiano Ronaldo was sent off for the second time in a Manchester derby, but Wayne Rooney’s first-half strike was enough to hand United all three points at Eastlands.

    Ronaldo’s two yellow cards – the second for a bizarre deliberate handball – meant the Reds had to play the last 22 minutes with 10 men. But City didn’t threaten until stoppage time and United held on to claim a deserved derby-day win.

    Sir Alex’s men controlled the game from start to finish, proving class and ability on the pitch counts for far more than wealth and ambition off it. Certainly, when City’s new owners took over in the summer, expectations in the blue half of Manchester rose astronomically. Almost immediately, the owners outlined a wish to win the Champions League within just three years. On the evidence of the 151st Manchester derby, however, City still have a lot of work to do.

    Dimitar Berbatov made a surprise return to the Reds’ starting line-up after missing United’s last two matches with a hamstring injury. His inclusion alongside Wayne Rooney meant Carlos Tevez had to be content with a place on the bench.

    Elsewhere, Ji-sung Park was given the nod ahead of Ryan Giggs and Nani on the left side of midfield, while 18-year-old Brazilian Rafael started at right back in his first Manchester derby. He showed little sign of nerves, darting down the wing early on to add an extra man to the Reds’ attacks.

    It was from the right that United’s first real chance came, although it was Ji-sung Park and not the young Brazilian who fizzed the ball across the Blues’ box. It reached Rooney at the penalty spot, but the England international’s shot was straight at Joe Hart.

    and Ronaldo rose highest on 14 minutes to head narrowly over the bar from Wayne Rooney’s corner. Berbatov then drew a finger-tip save from Hart when he nodded Rafael’s cross towards the far corner.

    United’s midfield four, commanded by Darren Fletcher in the middle, were first to everything, as City struggled to win – let alone keep – the ball. Fletcher and Berbatov linked well to release Ronaldo before the ball broke to Patrice Evra, who couldn’t keep his shot down.

    Despite dominating, United almost went behind after 32 minutes. Van der Sar came a long way for a City free-kick and struggled to punch clear. With the Dutchman stranded, Stephen Ireland stabbed the ball goalwards from 18 yards. Micah Richards elected not to try and steer it in himself and in the end the ball bounced, almost in slow-motion, off the outside of the post and out for a goal kick.

    It would have been cruel on the Reds, but the scare underlined how important it is to take chances in front of goal. And that’s exactly what Wayne Rooney did just before the interval, when his 100th club goal – his 83rd for United – put United in front.

    City struggled to clear a bouncing ball inside the penalty area and when it broke to Michael Carrick the midfielder lashed a left-footed shot across Hart towards the far corner. The City goalkeeper did well to keep out the shot, but could only palm the ball to Rooney, who side-footed home from two yards.

    The only surprise was that it took so long for the Reds to break the deadlock. Completely dominant in the first 45 minutes, United wouldn’t have been flattered had the score been 3-0 at the break.

    Even from tele replays, really dunno whats on Ronaldo's mind. It could be true as he claimed he heard the whistle or he jumped too high and instintivly uses his hand to shield his face.

    Quite a number of yellows that can be avoided but I guess the players really gve it all to beat Man City.

    Oh man Giggs should have scored in the final mins, instead he day dreamed and passed to Rooney. By that time, City's GK managed to scrambled back and claw it away.

    Wayne hails 'massive' win

    Wayne Rooney says beating Manchester City at Eastlands on Sunday was a “massive result”.

    The Reds’ no.10 scored the only goal of the game to secure the win and move United to within five points of Chelsea at the final whistle.

    “It was a massive win,” Rooney said. “Not necessarily because it was against Manchester City, but because three points are vital, especially with Chelsea and Liverpool playing after us. We simply had to win and I thought we produced a good performance.”

    The Reds had more of the ball, more shots on goal and always looked more likely to win the match. Even after Cristiano Ronaldo was sent off in the 68th minute, City failed to assert themselves.

    “They put us under a little more pressure in the last 20 minutes but I thought we defended very well as a team and we could have even nicked another goal late in the game. Overall, we deserved the three points.”

    Rooney’s strike on 42 minutes was his 100th club career goal.

    “We were on top so it was important we got the first goal,” Rooney said. “We knew that 0-0 at half-time would have given City a lift and they would have put us under a bit more pressure in the second half.

    “To be honest, I didn’t really think about [the fact it was my 100th goal]. I was more excited about scoring away at City. And for it to turn out to be the winning goal is very pleasing.

    “City took six points off us last season. The players, the fans and everyone at the club was hurt by that, so to pick up three points against them today was a very good result.”

    Boss salutes battling Reds

    Sir Alex Ferguson hailed his side's resolve and determination after ten-men United held on for a vital 1-0 victory over neighbours City.

    Wayne Rooney's close range finish just before the break was the difference between the two sides, despite the Reds being a man down for the final 22 minutes following Cristiano Ronaldo's sending off.

    The United boss was delighted with the victory which keeps the Reds within touching distance of Chelsea and Liverpool.

    "We needed to win given our position behind the top two and it's a significant result for us," Sir Alex told MUTV.

    "It was a fantastic performance particularly in the first half and with ten men the players showed their resolve and a great determination to see the game out.

    "We defended well throughout and never really had any problems in that respect, but that was down to our good defensive play.

    "Losing twice to them last season was something that's never happened during my 22 years here, and you don't forget these things. So we're pleased to get the result."

    Sir Alex took time to pay tribute to United's match-winner after he notched his 100th career goal.

    "Andy Cole was a tap-in specialist because he always anticipated situations and Wayne anticipated very well today," said the boss. "Scoring 100 goals is a terrific achievement, and his work-rate throughout was phenomenal."

    Ronny dismissal was harsh

    Sir Alex Ferguson felt Howard Webb's decision to send off Cristiano Ronaldo for what the referee deemed as deliberate hand-ball was a harsh one.

    The 68th minute dismissal of the United winger was the only blot on the Reds' copybook during a crucial 1-0 victory over their local neighbours.

    The United boss believed Ronaldo, who now faces a one-match ban, was merely protecting his face when he rose to meet Wayne Rooney's right wing corner.

    "I've watched it again and he's trying to protect the ball hitting his face," he told MUTV. "He also thought he heard the whistle.

    "It's not as if he's thrown a hand at the ball to deflect it away or punch it towards goal, it simply hit his hands.

    "If it had been outside the box, the referee would just have given a free-kick, nothing else. The crowd played their part of course and he got sent off.

    "Sometimes you just have to overcome things and we overcame a lot today," added the manager. "Winning with ten men is a difficult task away from home and we did that well today."

    The only surprise was that it took so long for the Reds to break the deadlock. Completely dominant in the first 45 minutes, United wouldn’t have been flattered had the score been 3-0 at the break.

    Mark Hughes made changes at half-time, bringing Elano and Pablo Zabaleta on for Darius Vassell and Dietmar Hamann. The Blues were buoyed and Vincent Kompany went close from distance before Benjani found the side-netting after a quick counter-attack.

    The changes allowed City to creep back into the game and the home team enjoyed more time on the ball. At the other end, Berbatov almost squeezed his shot past his marker before the game turned in City’s favour with Ronaldo’s dismissal.

    Already on a yellow card after bringing down Shaun Wright-Phillips, Ronaldo went up for a corner and batted the ball away with both hands. He appeared to claim he heard a whistle and had thought the match had been stopped, but referee Howard Webb was unconvinced and showed the no.7 a second yellow card.

    It was a bizarre incident – there seemed no other reason for Ronaldo to have gone with his hands – and forced United to reshuffle for the final 22 minutes. The Blues threw on striker Daniel Sturridge to bolster their attacking options, but failed to threaten van der Sar’s goal until stoppage-time when Richard Dunne had a shot cleared off the line.

    The Reds then broke and almost made it 2-0 when Rooney tried to lob the retreating Hart from 40 yards. The goalkeeper made a fine save to deny Wayne on this occasion, but his first-half effort proved enough to clinch the points and wrestle back bragging rights for the red half of Manchester.

    Robin guns down Chelsea

    Robin van Persie condemned Chelsea to their second defeat of the season after Arsenal fought back from a goal down to seal a 2-1 win at Stamford Bridge.

    Johan Djorou put Jose Bosingwa's cross through his own net on 31 minutes before van Persie struck twice in three minutes either side of the hour mark to give Arsene Wenger's men victory.

    The result sees the Gunners move to within two points of third-placed United, who are five points behind Chelsea and Liverpool (who entertain West Ham on Monday night) with a game in hand.

    Elsewhere on Sunday, a Steven Pienaar goal was enough to give Everton a 1-0 victory at Tottenham, while Sean Davis' late strike gave Portsmouth a 3-2 victory over Blackburn at Fratton Park.
