GIF: The goal that gave Manchester City the lead after just 42 seconds

Suffice to say that Manchester City look like they're up for it

It was a bad start for Moyes' boys this evening as they conceded the lead before they'd even had a touch of the ball, which gives aul Davey another record he might not want: this is the first time time in the Premier League era that Manchester United have conceded within the first minute.

City started at a pace and immediately attacked the goal, creating a few opportunities (notably Nasri hitting the post) before Dzeko was able to tap home the simplest of chances.

However you want to look at it, that's a bad way to get the game under way. One thing that might be worth noting is that there have already been four yellow cards in this half, not to mention Rooney getting off lightly for a tackle from behind, so if you fancy a flutter maybe bet on there being a cheeky red at some stage.
