Manchester United eliminated Manchester City out of the FA Cup with a 3-2 third-round win in a drama-packed derby at Etihad Stadium in a clash that could turn into a revenge game for Manu but in the end didn’t.

Manchester / NationalTurk – Manchester United surged into a 3-0 halftime lead after the controversial early sending-off of Manchester City defender Vincent Kompany and looked poised to exact full revenge for their humiliating 6-1 home league trashing by their rival neighbours earlier this season.

Manu striker Wayne Rooney was in form , having scored twice, netting either side of the controversial sending off of Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany, with Danny Welbeck also on target to make it 3-0 for the Red Devils before the half-time break for the visitors.

Manchester City fans were soaking wet and had to endure their teams woeful suffering in the hands of their fiercest rivals. More than few City fans couldn’t resist imagining a worse defeat than 6-1 at the halftime, as their City was one man and 3 goals behind Manchester United.
