Manchester United fans were angered by Alexis Sanchez and Juan Mata after they were spotted laughing on the bench during their clash with Manchester City.

Sanchez was surprisingly dropped for Sundays derby at the Etihad Stadium after he impressed as Uniteds central striker against Bournemouth and Juventus.

United got off to a bad start as David Silva put Pep Guardiolas side ahead in the 12th minute and struggled to create chances against the Premier League champions in the opening 45 minutes.

As the first half was coming to a close, the camera turned to Uniteds bench and Sanchez was seen sharing a joke with Mata.
