The 2016-17 Premier League season’s final Manchester Derby ended in a 0-0 stalemate today at The Ettihad Stadium.

The match took on implications beyond local bragging rights as both clubs are fighting for the fourth and final automatic Champions League spot.

Manchester City remains one point ahead of their rivals in fourth place with five matches left in the season.

Manchester United played the last 13 minutes, including injury time, with 10 men as Marouane Fellaini was sent off after head butting Sergio Aguero.

Manchester City thought that it had grabbed three points, when Gabriel Jesus slotted the ball home in the game’s final moments however the Brazilian forward was correctly ruled offside.

The two rivals will face off next this summer at the International Champions Cup Presented by Heineken on July 20. The match will mark the first time the Manchester Derby will be played outside of England. The location of the match as well as ticket details will be announced in the near future.
