Man City 0-0 Man United

Marouane Fellaini was sent off for headbutting Sergio Aguero as Manchester City and Manchester United fought out a goalless draw at the Etihad Stadium to leave their hopes of a place in the Premier League’s top four still in the balance

Jose Mourinho will be the happier of the two managers after United extended their unbeaten league run to 24 games, a feat achieved without Fellaini in the closing stages after he was dismissed for a senseless headbutt on Aguero.

It was Aguero who came closest for City when he hit the post early on and manager Pep Guardiola was left with an injury concern when Claudio Bravo was taken off on a stretcher after injuring his calf catching a cross in the second half.

City substitute Gabriel Jesus had a later header correctly ruled out for offside as they remain in fourth place, with United a point behind in fifth as both sides have five games remaining.
