Gallery: Derby drama

Sir Alex Ferguson was right... this Manchester derby, unlike the previous one in April, had almost everything.

Five goals including a trademark late winner for United and periods of ascendancy for the Reds and the Blues ensured the photographers were kept busy at both ends of the Etihad Stadium. And with so much drama on the field, it seemed appropriate that a couple of Hollywood stars - Robert Duvall and Tom Cruise - were also in front of the cameras after making a surprise appearance in the stands.

The club's own snappers, John Peters and Matthew Peters, were among the men and women focusing their lenses on the intense local and title-race rivalry between the league leaders and the champions.

ManUtd.com's gallery shows some of their best work on a wonderful derby day for United. We hope you enjoy it.
