Tempers flared between Manchester City and Manchester United in the aftermath of last night’s derby at Old Trafford, Press Association Sport understands. Heated exchanges took place involving Jose Mourinho and some of City’s players, it is understood, with the United boss reportedly involved in a confrontation with City goalkeeper Ederson. Figures from United apparently took exception to the raucous manner in which City were celebrating their 2-1 success, which included playing loud music in their dressing room.

The corridor leading to the dressing rooms apparently became very congested as players and staff made their way through it after the game, and tensions spilled over into pushing and shoving. City’s assistant coach Mikel Arteta is understood to have suffered a cut to the head in the fracas, while Mourinho apparently shouted into the City dressing room.

There have also been reports milk and water were thrown at Mourinho. Neither club commented when contacted last evening.

The incidents occurred after a fiery end to the match. There were arguments among players after United had a penalty appeal rejected in the latter stages.

City won with goals from David Silva and Nicolas Otamendi, with Marcus Rashford replying for United.
