Manchester City vs. Manchester United: Yaya Toure strikes just after United have goal disallowed

Oooh, so close to 3-0. A dangerous cross from Antonio Valencia eventually finds its way to Tom Cleverley, who feeds Robin van Persie on the left side of the penalty area. His effort absolutely ruins Joe Hart, who comes nowhere near the curler, and only the left-hand post kept the deficit at two. The ball ricocheted to Ashley Young, who stabbed home, but his strike was ruled out for offside. Possibly incorrectly.

And now Manchester City have scored! Carlos Tevez does superbly to work his way into space, and his initial effort prevents David de Gea from making a clean save. David Silva's followup is clawed away by the goalkeeper, but some more superb work by the substitute eventually sees Yaya Toure sweeping in from near the penalty spot to make it 2-1.

That's a huge turnaround within the span of a minute. Had United gone 3-0 up, this match would have been over. Now the hosts are in with a chance.
