Manchester United under-21's 4-0 win over Manchester marred by fighting fans

Manchester United's 4-0 victory over neighbours City at Old Trafford was marred by crowd disturbances where security staff needed to intervene during ugly scenes in the stands.

James Wilson, Adnan Januzaj, Ashley Fletcher and Matty Willock scored the goals as the Red Devils enjoyed an emphatic win in front of a large crowd of 16, 708.

Entry was free, but unfortunately there were unsavoury scenes where a number of supporters appeared to throw punches and had to be removed by security staff.

A point for United in the final game, also against Manchester City, will claim top spot in the table.

Warren Joyce’s men have now amassed 40 points and, with Liverpool and Sunderland unable to build on their tallies having played all their games, they simply need to avoid defeat in their final game to win the title ahead of Chelsea, who have two matches to go.
