Pep Guardiola's Manchester City held on for derby victory as Jose Mourinho suffered his first loss as Manchester United manager.

Kevin De Bruyne and Kelechi Iheanacho gave the visitors a deserved lead, only for debutant Claudio Bravo to gift United a chance after flapping at a free-kick as Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored.

The City goalkeeper continued to struggle and United may argue should have been sent off for a lunge at Wayne Rooney, but referee Mark Clattenburg waved played on and Guardiola's side held on for a 2-1 win.
