Manchester: Sergio Aguero's goal ensured Louis van Gaal's first Manchester derby ended in defeat as Manchester City F.C. beat 10-man Manchester United 1-0 at Eastlands on Sunday. (Highlights)
United manager Van Gaal's side had to play more than half the match a man down as defender Chris Smalling was sent off in the 39th minute after collecting two needless yellow cards, having charged down goalkeeper Joe Hart's clearance kick before a reckless foul on James Milner.
City had several penalty appeals rejected by referee Michael Oliver before Aguero fired City into a 63rd-minute lead after finishing from close range to crown a superb one-touch move involving Yaya Toure and Gael Clichy.
