Michael Owen struck in the sixth minute of stoppage-time to give Manchester United a 4-3 victory in a staggering derby-day extravaganza at Old Trafford.

United went ahead through efforts from Wayne Rooney and Darren Fletcher but City levelled twice through Gareth Barry and Craig Bellamy before Fletcher headed United ahead again.

City thought they had grabbed a point when Craig Bellamy steered home their third leveller in the final minute. But up popped Owen, just as he said he would, with virtually the final kick to leave the Blues on their knees.
