City finally waved goodbye to this season’s unbeaten record and their long home run without defeat.

But what a fight they put up battling back from a two-goal deficit only to cruelly lose in injury time.

Wayne Rooney was the derby tormentor-in-chief scoring twice in the opening half after the champions had begun well in pursuit of a third straight league win over their neighbours.

But goals from Yaya Toure and Pablo Zabaleta looked to have rescued a point for the home side until they gave away an injury time free kick and were punished by Robin Van Persie.
