The city is certainly blue this weekend!
Football fans have taken to social media in the aftermath of Manchester City’s famous derby day victory over Manchester United, as Pep Guardiola emerged victorious from his first Premier League battle with rival Jose Mourinho.
Kevin de Bruyne’s cool finish and Kelechi Iheanacho’s tap-in after the Belgian hit the post put City in complete control as they outclassed Mourinho’s Manchester United for most of the opening 45 minutes.
United were handed a lifeline just before the break when City’s debutant keeper Claudio Bravo summed up his desperately uncertain display by dropping a free-kick to allow Zlatan Ibrahimovic to pull a goal back.
But City, held on to secure a famous 2-1 victory, leaving City and Chelsea as the only two sides left with a 100% Premier League record so far this season.
In the aftermath of City’s victory, football fans from both sides of Manchester took to Twitter to react to the result.

Early days but #ManCity have made a statement. Though they will have the odd tremor over the goalkeeper!— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) September 10, 2016
