The campaign may only be in its infancy but Saturday's derby had social media alight with activity as Pep Guardiola's men triumphed 2-1 at Manchester United.

Kevin De Bruyne opened the scoring and then hit the post, from which Kelechi Iheanacho tapped home from close range - a moment that led to 24,500 tweets per minute.

However, that paled into insignificance compared to Bravo flapping at Wayne Rooney's free-kick, allowing Zlatan Ibrahimovic to thunder home.

That moment led to 33,000 posts per minute - the most tweeted moment of the season so far, 8,000 higher than the second-most spoken about incident.

In all, the Manchester derby was posted about 1.7million times on Twitter, with Paul Pogba, somewhat surprisingly, the most-mentioned individual.
