INCIDENTS: Premier League match between Manchester United and Manchester City, held at Old Trafford

I have been Brandon Sayer and that brings to end to today's live Premier League match between Manchester United and Manchester City. I hope you have enjoyed our coverage and until next time have a good day.

The second half was much better from Manchster United's perspective as they really pressed for a equaliser but they couldn't manage to do it. Ibrahimovic scored yet again in the first half but it wasn't enough as City get four wins from four games.

Well that is that for the first Manchester derby of the season and it is Manchester City who have the bragging rights from the game. Overall City probably edged it given how well they played in the first half. Goals from De Bruyne and Iheanacho won the match for Guardiola's side.

90+5' - The referee blows his whistle to end the second half. Manchester United 1-2 Manchester City.

90+5' - Fernandinho receives a yellow card for a late tackle on Herrera.

83' - Rooney receives a yellow card for a late tackle on Bravo.

81' - Manchester United substitution: Luke Shaw is replaced by Anthony Martial.

75' - De Bruyne is so unlucky to have not made it 3-1 to City. A brilliant break from City found De Bruyne in the box and the midfielder hit a first time shot which came off the post and rolled across the De Gea's line but it didn't go in the net. So unlucky so he was.

72' - What a save from De Gea! A brilliant cross from a corner kick from De Bruyne found Fernandinho unamrked and he vollyed towards goal but De Gea got down well to keep it out of the net.

70' - Goal No! United thought they had levelled the game up as a long pass from Blind found Rashford who then let fly from the edge of the box but it took a flick of Ibrahimovic before it went in the net and he was offside. Good call from the referee.

66' - A good flick on from Fellaini from a long pass found Ibrahimovic on the edge of the box but his shot went over the bar when he usually hits it on target.

48' - It's already been a much more positive start to the second half for United as Ibrahimovic has already had two shots which have gone over the bar. Rashford's confidence is there for everyone to see so far at the start of the second half.

46' - The referee blows his whistle to begin the second half. Game on!

Double substitution for Manchester United: Ander Herrera and Marcus Rashford on. Mkhitaryan and Lingard off.

Well City will be furious with themseleves for only being one goal in front after dominating the first half. Goals from De Bruyne and Iheanacho were just what City deserved but a late error in the half from Bravo let Ibrahimovic get one back for the hosts who have been very poor. Stay tuned as we bring you the second half live in a few minutes time.

41' - The first yellow card of the game is awarded to David Silva for a late tackle on Valencia. Otamendi was lucky he didn't get one either for his bad tackle aswell.

36' - Goal for City! Iheanacho scores the easiest of tap ins to double the visitors lead. De Bruyne was at the heart of the move again as his brilliant shot came back off the post and Iheanacho was their to tap the ball home into an empty net. Is that game over for United? We will find out soon.

30' - Sagna lets fly with a volley from 30 yards out which just flashes over the bar. City are toally dominant in the game as United are just not at the races.

25' - The frustration is really starting to get to the United players as Rooney loses his head with a bad tackle but somehow doesn't get a yellow card at least.

15' - Goal to City! The best player on the pitch De Bruyne gives the visitors the lead. A long ball up field was flicked on by Iheanacho and Blind let the ball bounce and De Bruyne took it off him and ran through and scored brilliantly past De Gea.

11' - City are really causing United all kinds of problems at the back but luckily for the home side Valencia made a crucial last ditch challenge to stop City from taking the lead. Very worrying start from the hosts.

7' - City have started the game really well but it's the home side who had the first shot at goal when they broke on City. A good passing move ended with Pogba having a shot from outside the box which went just over the bar. Good effort.

Predicted Manchester United starting lineup (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Valencia, Bailly, Blind, Shaw; Fellaini, Pogba; Mata, Rooney, Martial; Ibrahimović.

Guardiola will have to come up with a different gameplan than he has had to do all season so far as Sergio Aguero will miss the game due to being suspended. Kelechi Iheanacho could, therefore, be an option to start after impressing from the bench in the few appearances he has had so far in his short City career. İlkay Gündoğan and Leroy Sane could make their debuts after returning to training over the international break. Vincent Kompany is unlikely to play a part in the game even though he stepped up his recovery recently.

In terms of injuries ahead of the game, Mourinho is sweating on the fitness of a few of his players. Henrikh Mkhitaryan is a doubt for the game after suffering an injury during the International break. Luke Shaw is another who will have to assessed ahead of the game after feeling an ache in his leg which meant he left the England squad. Marouane Fellaini, who picked up an injury against Hull, has recovered and is set to start the game once again. Antonio Valencia is one that Mourinho will have to check on as well as he only returned back late from international duty and may not be ready for the game.

Manchester United fans and players though will remember the last Manchester Derby that took place in the league as the Red Devils won the match thanks to a goal in the first half from Rashford. The young striker will be hoping to do the same again and finally start a league match for the first time this season especially after impressing on International duty, scoring a hattrick for the England U21s.

The game though will have to be much better than what it was last year between the two clubs at Old Trafford as the game ended in a goalless draw which doesn't live long in the memory as one people will talk about.

The added spice to the game is that it is Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola's first Manchester derby in charge of their respected clubs. It's safe to say that there is no love lost between the two managers and they will soon know what it means to be in charge of the Manchester clubs when this game is finished.

Both teams have made a superb start to the new Premier League season, winning all three games so far. The Red Devils though left it late last time around against Hull City when Marcus Rashford scored in injury time to win the game for the team. City have been impressive so far in the first three games especially dispatching West Ham United in the last game before the International break. This game though will be the toughest test so far for both teams as they look to assert their dominance in the league.
