FANS at Old Trafford cheered when Manchester City scored the game-winning goal against Burnley on Sunday.
Sergio Aguero’s strike dealt a massive blow to Liverpool’s title hopes as Pep Guardiola’s men regained the lead in the Premier League.
City were once called “lousy neighbours” by Sir Alex Ferguson.
But Manchester United fans seemingly put the rivalry with their local enemies on hold for the ‘greater good’.

United fans evidently would rather have Guardiola’s side claim another Prem crown than see it go to their nemeses from Anfield.
Even though Red Devils legend Gary Neville once said it is like “choosing between two blokes to nick your wife”.
Sean Dyche’s men kept City at bay until late in the second half, with Guardiola growing frustrated with every minute at Turf Moor.
