The Manchester Derby ended in a scuffle as both teams clashed in a dressing room brawl after the game.
The brawl began after Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho went to the visiting dressing room to complain of the loud music being played.
A verbal argument broke out between Mourinho and fellow Portuguese, City’s goalkeeper Ederson.
Ederson had hit out at Mourinho for entering their dressing room, and Mourinho had reportedly responded: “You f****** show respect. Who are you?”
There were even reports that Mourinho was hit on the head with a plastic water bottle, with security staff eventually forced to intervene.
The former Everton and Arsenal midfielder, Mikel Arteta, one of Pep Guardiola’s assistants, was left with blood running down his face after allegedly being cut above the eyebrow.
Mourinho slams “lucky” Manchester City
Mourinho later accused City of being “protected by luck” after claiming his team were denied a “clear penalty” against their bitter rivals for the second successive season at Old Trafford.
Ander Herrera was booked for diving by referee Michael Oliver after a challenge by Nicolas Otamendi in the 79th minute that Mourinho was convinced was a foul by the City defender.
“Manchester City are a very good team and they are protected by the luck, and the gods of football are behind them,” Mourinho said.
“My first reaction is I feel sorry for referee Michael Oliver because he had a very good match but unfortunately he made an important mistake.
“It is like last season, exactly the same. You can speak about anything you want, you can bring any football theory, you can bring the stats, the ball possession, you can bring everything you want but, like last season, it is a huge penalty in a crucial moment of the game.
“Yes they [City] had much more of the ball, yes they had that apparent control of the game but the biggest save is the double save of their goalkeeper [Ederson from Romelu Lukaku and Juan Mata] and the biggest decision of the game is the unlucky decision of Michael [Oliver].”
