Manchester City Stuns Manchester United with a 2-1 Win

Manchester City beat Manchester United 2-1 causing a major upset at Old Trafford. Goals by Darius Vassell in the 24th minute and debutant Mwaruwari Benjani in the 45th minute were enough to seal the win for City despite Michael Carrick's late goal.

It was an emotive occasion at Old Trafford with the 50th anniversary of the disaster at Munich being remembered with the Red Devil's players wearing 1958-style sponsorless red shirts and City wearing special shirts in addition to the 1-minute of silence observed before the start of the match.

United struggled to create chances even though they had lots of possession throughout the game as Dietmar Hamann, Micah Richards and Richard Dunne of Manchester City offered great defense for Joe Hart, City's keeper.
