Today's derby day in Manchester, as United and City are facing off in a clash between two of the most supported Premier League squads in the world. As one would expect, things have been heated throughout the entire match, as United have gone up 2-0 at the Etihad. However, City fans have taken things quite too far, as displayed in the clip below, which shows United midfielder Fred getting absolutely pelted with lighters and bottles while he was preparing to take a corner.

No matter who you might support, that's absolutely disgusting behavior from City fans. Even though this match is as close to an actual war as a sporting match can possibly get, there's no excuse for pelting opposing players with items that could actually hurt the players.

Appalling behavior by any standards, to say the least. Hopefully the Manchester City security guards will be able to prevent any further incidents from occurring.
