Man City fans troll Man Utd from very first whistle with three savage chants

Manchester City fans could be heard taunting Manchester United with a series of brutal chants early on in Saturday's derby at Old Trafford.

Pep Guardiola's men took an early lead at the home of their arch-rivals, breaking the deadlock in the seventh minute thanks to an own goal from Eric Bailly.

Joao Cancelo advanced down the left-hand side and whipped the ball across goal, only for Bailly to turn his attempted clearance past David de Gea and into his own net.

City made a strong start in the game, dominating possession as they so typically do and forcing United deep into their own half.

While watching their side control the early stages of the game, the travelling fans were heard trolling United on a number of occasions.

Before opening the scoring they poked fun at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's woes in the Red Devils hot-seat of late, chanting: "Ole's at the wheel, tell me how good does it feel".

Bailly's opener was then followed by cries of "you're f****** s***".

And to compound the hosts' misery, as early as the 15th minute City supporters could be heard chanting "Olé" whenever their team made a successful pass, signalling the gulf in class between the two sides.

It looked like United would have David de Gea to thank for remaining in the game at the half-time break.

If not for the Spanish goalkeeper, who pulled out some terrific saves in the opening 45 minutes, Solskjaer's men would be trailing by much more ahead of the second session.

But right at the death of the first, Cancelo again put in an inviting cross and picked out Bernardo Silva, who somehow snuck the ball past De Gea at the far post and into the back of the net.

United's only significant chance came in the 26th minute, when Luke Shaw galloped down the left flank and picked out Cristiano Ronaldo in the box unmarked.

Ronaldo swivelled and unleashed a fierce effort at goal, but City shot-stopper Ederson was on hand to deny him.

Solskjaer needs to spark a reaction at the interval, with his side set to slip six points behind City if they fail to salvage a draw in the second half.
