Chris Smalling wipes out Carlos Tevez on the halfway line, much to the displeasure of the Etihad crowd (but to the deep amusement of more or less everyone else on the planet). The striker goes rolling around. but Andre Marriner's not giving anything more than a free kick for it. Said free kick is completely wasted. Manchester City also contrive to waste their next attack when Sergio Aguero skips past Paul Scholes only to completely misplace his pass to Pablo Zabeleta. The hosts do earn a corner, from which Samir Nasri curls well wide.
Down 1-0, Sir Alex Ferguson makes a change, pulling off Park Ji-Sung for Danny Welbeck. That's not a big surprise - they need a goal as things stand and don't have much in the way of a cutting edge so far. United are probably dropping back into their standard 4-4-1-1 now.
