89: Scholes cleverly contrives a left-footed volley inside the area but strikes the ball high over the crossbar.

87: Dickov and Brown are involved in a tussle after the pair compete for the ball in the United area.

83: Phil Neville goes down after a bad challenge by Tiatto and a scuffle involving several players from each team breaks out near the touchline.

81: Haaland goes down in the United area under a challenge from Gary Neville and the City fans appeal for a penalty.

79: Weaver spills a low Giggs shot, but recovers to gather the ball as it dribbles toward an unguarded net.

71: Charvet's cross is deflected and evades several United defenders. Barthez gets a faint touch and Haaland bends backwards to head toward goal, but Brown swivels to clear.

69: Substitute Bishop whips in a cross from the right flank and Howey heads high and wide from just seven yards out.

67: United's Teddy Sheringham cleverly passes to his strike-partner Yorke, who is tackled by the alert Charvet 10 yards from goal.

63: Dickov is shown a yellow card for bringing down Beckham near the touchline.

Half-time: Manchester City 0-1 Manchester United. City bring on Ian Bishop and Shaun Goater for Mark Kennedy and Gerard Wiekens.

45: Keane marauds down the right flank and crosses across the face of City's goal. Prior slides in to put the ball out for a corner.

43: Weaver comes outside his area to partially clear the ball from Butt, who is played clean through by Keane. The ball falls to Yorke, who shoots at an open goal from 20 yards, but Howey acrobatically intercepts.

40: Laurent Charvet athletically slides in to divert a cross away from United skipper Roy Keane, who is lurking near City's far post.

37: Haaland is played in by Wright-Phillips, rounds the onrushing Barthez, but then hits his shot weakly wide of the post.

36: Phil Neville plays a threatening ball into the City area from the right wing, but Prior gets the faintest of touches to take it out of the path of unmarked Yorke.

34: Yorke gets in behind Spencer Prior and runs toward the City area, but Howey comes across and tackles the United striker.

30: Whitley cleverly plays Wright-Phillips in down the right wing and the young striker plays an excellent ball into the area, but it marginally evades his team-mates.

28: Wright-Philips fires a volley wide of the post from the edge of United's area after the ball falls to him from a corner.

27: United are awarded a free-kick following a Tiatto foul. Beckham feeds Scholes, who chips too far ahead of his team-mates into Weaver's arms.

15: Striker Shaun Wright-Phillips sends an instinctive right-footed volley over United's crossbar from about 15 yards.

13: Danny Tiatto is handed the first yellow card of the game after he fouls Beckham. Shortly after a Scholes header plays Dwight Yorke clean through, but the United striker is thwarted by a marginal offside decision.

8: Dickov pressurises Barthez into conceding a corner. Steve Howey heads straight into the United keeper's arms from the resultant set-piece.

5: United keeper Fabien Barthez comes off his line quickly to gather from the feet of the onrushing Haaland.
