Manchester City Vs. Manchester United, 2012 Premier League: Tevez Creates City's First Chance

We get a bit of a kickabout in the heart of the Manchester United defence before David de Gea punts forward. Nani wins the header before Pablo Zabaleta wipes out Wayne Rooney on the Manchester City right. The visitors contrive to completely waste their attack via a massively overhit through ball which goes out for a free kick.

At the other end of the pitch, Sergio Aguero, whom we haven't seem too much of, tried to start a fast break down the left only to dribble the ball straight out of play. Suffice to say that this match has been missing the quality you'd expect from teams of this calibre. If City can settle down and just put together a few passes, they'll be in much better shape.

Oooh, and speaking of, Carlos Tevez latches onto a great reverse pass from Gareth Barry to get in behind the United defence. The striker fizzes in a low cross that eludes de Gea but is booted clear by Phil Jones before Aguero can pounce. That's much better from City.
