Man United 3
Man City 1 (Man United win 4-3 on agg)
WAYNE RooNEY was the deciding factor in this Manchester derby as his goal one minute into injury-time secured United a place in the Carling Cup Final at their neighbours' expense.
But City again pushed United all the way and simply refused to lie down in a game high on drama and passion.
Seemingly intent on making Manchester United pay for letting him leave old Trafford at every opportunity, Carlos Tevez had dragged City back to 3-3 on aggregate with a superb strike as he escaped his marker.
After the two goals that gave Manchester City a precious firstleg advantage, Tevez scored the 76th-minute goal which took this match down to the wire.
But City reckoned without United's own in-form forward and Rooney had the final say.
