Manchester City 2 Manchester United 1

Manchester City earned bragging rights over close rivals United last night with a 2-1 win in the first leg of their Carling Cup semi-final at Eastlands.

Former United striker Carlos Tevez scored twice as City came from behind to earn a famous win. Ryan Giggs had put the Premier League champions ahead on 17 minutes after some terrible defending from Javier Garrido.

But Tevez, deemed surplus to requirements at Old Trafford this season, did his best to show Sir Alex Ferguson that he was wrong not to sign him in the summer. The Argentina striker scored a brace and was a constant thorn in United's side.
