Manchester City Vs. Manchester United, 2012 Premier League: De Jong Booked

And there's a Nigel de Jong special. Manchester United are breaking down the pitch and Danny Welbeck is going to escape down the left flank, so the midfielder puts in a reducer and wipes out the younger striker. He's booked and Welbeck stays down for a while. City rather sarcastically ready a stretcher, and then the managers get into it on the touchline. Fun! Anyway, the free kick comes to nothing, and City go down the other end and see Sergio Aguero hit the side netting.

Paul Scholes comes off for United, with Antonio Valencia appearing in his place. The idea will be to stretch Gael Clichy a little bit more and move Ryan Giggs to the centre, but they'll actually need to get the ball to do that. They've got about ten minutes to find a goal, or they're going to end the day in second place.
