One of the most scintillating Manchester derbies in recent memory caught more attention for off field antics more than for the thrilling football played at Old Trafford.
Reports of a tussle outside the dressing rooms after the full-time whistle between the players with even Jose Mourinho and Mikel Arteta rumoured to be involved, has prompted a FA investigation into the matter.
With Jose angered by an apparent lack of respect from City players following their win, the Portuguese tactician will certainly not take kindly to this chanting heard from the City squadron after the win against Tottenham yesterday.
After taking down yet another ‘contender’ for the Premier League crown, City players were in jolly good mood going into their dressing room but perhaps let their emotions get the better of them as they went on to sing a chant about United in a less than appreciating manner.
A video taken inside the City dressing room shows a host of players singing “park the bus” chant against their illustrious neighbours loudly.
The video caught the attention of United fans who were understandably furious with their rivals unprovoked attack on the Reds and echoed their managers words of the Citizens lacking any respect.

An excited Yannick Bolasie took to Twitter to express his eagerness to return to action amidst reports that the Congolese international could make his much awaited return against Swansea on Tuesday.
The Everton winger posted a photo of himself with his feet up donning football boots indoors with a seemingly innocent bookshelf in the background.
But eagle eyed fans were quick to notice the contents of the shelf and took to Twitter to troll the crocked star for his choice of reading material.
The former Eagles star was ridiculed all over social media by Reds fans for keeping a copy of Kop hero Steven Gerard’s biography in his shelf despite his allegiance to the blue side of Merseyside.
The incident with the winger comes almost a year after former Everton manager Ronald Koeman was ridiculed last year for choosing to use a Christmas tree having a darker shade of red than many supporters liking.

Having returned to Chelsea after a two year loan spell at Borussia Monchengladbach, Andreas Christensen has quickly earned a spot in the Blues starting eleven.
The 21-year-old is rapidly building a reputation for himself as one of the more composed defenders in the league and his performance during the 1-0 win against Southampton earlier today was no different.
The Dane showed his true class as he brought down a Saints clearance with a sublime first touch near the halfway line.
Considering a Southampton man was bearing down at him at an alarming pace, the touch shows the immense maturity and composure the young Chelsea defender possesses.
Pure bliss, check out the insane first touch here –
David Moyes continued his impressive start as the Hammers boss after a resounding 3-0 win over Stoke City earlier today.
Marko Arnautovic and Diafra Sakho struck in the closing stages of the game to add to to Mark Noble’s early first-half goal to give the Hammers all 3 points at the bet365 Stadium.
The traveling Hammers fans were chirping about most of their players throughout the game but a new chant for Arthur Masuaku has especially gathered attention online.
The left wing-back has seen an improvement in form this year and put in another impressive performance against the Potters tonight.
With Masuaku’s name rhyming with Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku, Hammers fans came up with a genius way to express their love for the Congolese international, while also poking fun at the Belgian’s infamous first-touch.
Check out chanting below:
Mesut Ozil lit up the Emirates stadium with a thundering volley to give Arsenal a much needed win against Newcastle United earlier today. The German midfielder paced himself beautifully inside the box and scored the only goal of the match with a sublime strike.
It was his quick release which instigated the attack in the first place and Ozil made sure to finish it up with an absolute banger. The effortlessness with which the number 8 picked out the top corner oozed class and left the home fans in awe of his left foot.
It proved to be enough for Arsene Wenger’s side as they battled to a 1-0 victory thanks to another world class performance from his star man.
Check out the stunning goal from various angles below –
The early season dread around Goodison Park seems to have died down following the appointment of Sam Allardyce.
The former England manager has overseen a change in fortunes for the Merseyside club who were hovering just above the relegation spots two months ago.
The move seems to have worked as Big Sam has overseen a drastic improvement in performances as well as results with the Blues sitting comfortably at 10th spot in the points table.
Players have responded well to the 63-year-old’s methods which have been subject to criticism in the past with the manager receiving stick for his defensive tactics, often setting up his sides deep in their own half with the impetus placed on preventing the opposition from scoring rather than scoring themselves.
Everton players however seem to be completely on board with their manager’s philosophy and many players were caught on cameras engaging in less than chivalrous actions to win all three points against Newcastle during the week.
Out of many incidents, the actions of Jonjoe Kenny during the final stages of the match has particularly caught the attention of fans online.
With the clock winding down and Everton hanging onto an early Wayne Rooney goal, the youngster certainly didn’t look like he was in any hurry to resume play after the ball went out of bounds near the technical area in the 89th minute.
Everton fans seemed to enjoy watching the young defender’s gestures near the touchline as he looked like a disoriented toddler unable to gather the ball on two separate occasions which irked the wrath of Toon players.

Few could argue with Kyle Walker’s decision to swap the whites of Tottenham for City blue as the right-back looks on course to win what would be his first Premier League medal.
With fans around the world complaining about the rapid influx of commercialization ruining the beautiful game, clubs looking to bring about a change needn’t look further than Leeds United.
The three time first division Champions are slowly looking to re-establish themselves as a proper club in line with their rich history after the takeover by Italian businessman Andrea Radrizzani.
The Championship club has already gained the approval of fans after running numerous charitable operations to support various sectors around the city and through their latest contribution, the club has gained the respect of football communities worldwide.
In an act of heartwarming generosity, the Elland Road club donated a chunk of footballing equipment and apparel to Liversedge FC, after the Yorkshire based semi-professional club had most of their gear stolen during an unfortunate break-in recently.
Liversedge FC showered Leeds with their gratitude through a post on Twitter –
A lot more than just three points will be on Arsenal’s agenda when they will try to get back to winning ways during their home encounter against Newcastle United tomorrow.
The Gunners faced demoralizing back-to-back draws ever since their 2-1 defeat at the hands of Manchester United a fortnight ago, which has now dragged them down to the seventh position on the table.
Assuring fans that the team is all set to bounce back was midfield maestro Mesut Ozil, who used Instagram to post a positive message following a training session today.
Doubts on the player’s future at the club are being fueled by rumours stating that he could leave next month, with Barcelona and Man United emerging as possible destinations.
But with such displays of commitment, Arsenal fans can at least rest assured that he will be a true Gunner through and through as long as he’s here.

Mistakes can be rectified but not erased, at least not when they are made online. The Everton official Twitter admins would have learnt this the hard way.
Everton continued their unbeaten run as they defeated Newcastle United at St. James’ Park by a narrow margin on Wednesday. Whilst tweeting about the win, the Everton social media team accidentally tagged American rapper Lil Wayne instead of goalscorer Wayne Rooney.
While they did delete the post minutes later, the admins couldn’t prevent themselves from some embarrassment. People were quick to notice the gaffe and it soon went viral.
Everton have shown great improvement following the appointment of Big Sam as they climbed to the 10th place in the table. While the Toffees have managed to recover significantly following their rocky start to the season, it is safe to say that their Twitter admins still have some work to do.
