Tom Cruise was looking forward to his first experience of English football as he attended the Manchester derby at the Etihad Stadium today.

The Hollywood star predicted a "great game" between the top two sides in the Barclays Premier League.



"This is the first game that I've seen in England," he said on Sky Sports 1.



"I've been following it since the eighties so I'm just excited that I'm able to be here."



The Mission Impossible actor is friends with David Beckham and he revealed the former England captain had sent him a message ahead of the game.



"He wishes he was here. I got an email from him, he's jealous that I'm here," Cruise added.



Apocalypse Now actor Robert Duvall was also at the game, but appeared to be a little rusty on the rules.



He said: "Will there be a shootout today? No. If it's a tie? No."
