Manchester United's 4-0 victory over neighbours City at old Trafford was marred by crowd disturbances where security staff needed to intervene during ugly scenes in the stands.

Adnan Januzaj and James Wilson were among the goals as the Red Devils enjoyed an emphatic win in front of a large crowd of 16, 708.

Entry was free, but unfortunately there were unsavoury scenes where a number of supporters appeared to throw punches and had to be removed by security staff.

A point for United in the final game, also against Manchester City, will claim top spot in the table.
