Man United 4-3 Man City (September 2009)

Our clear number one derby classic belongs to the 4-3 thriller in the 2009/10 Premier League season.

Wayne Rooney’s second-minute opener handed the Red Devils a dream start at Old Trafford.

But Gareth Barry responded just 14 minutes later for his first City goal to level the scoreline in the first-half.

Craig Bellamy later cancelled out Darren Fletcher’s brace with a double of his own to seemingly seal the visitors a point. However, Michael Owen bagged a shock winner deep into stoppage-time for United.

The former Liverpool man’s effort left City manager Mark Hughes enraged. The fuming Welshman later slammed the amount of added time as the visitors lost for the first time that season.
