Up to a hundred football hooligans have been caught on camera involved in a violent street brawl after Sunday's Manchester City v Manchester United derby.

About 90 minutes after Manchester City had beaten Manchester United, a group of United trouble-makers stormed The Eastlands Bar, near the Etihad stadium, which was packed with celebrating City fans.

Manchester United hooligans threw bottles and a flare at City fans who were drinking on a terrace at the rear of the bar.

Some City supporters ran out of the bar to confront the United group, throwing chairs and other missiles.

A shocking video captured by a City fan and posted onto social media captures between 70 and 100 supporters punching and kicking each other on Albert Street in Beswick.

The footage also captures supporters hurling vile insults. Police say hooligans attacked each other with wooden poles.

The violence left one man, 48, thought to be a City fan on the ground after it appears he had been punched and kicked in the head while on the deck.

Police were on the scene moments later and arrested one man they found using a chair as a weapon.

Four others were arrested nearby.

 

Paramedics were called to the scene but the man who had been felled declined to go to hospital despite a broken nose, cuts and other head
injuries.

It is understood none of the people involved in the disturbance has made a complaint of assault.

The five suspects who were arrested have been released on police bail pending further enquiries into the street brawl.

The five arrested were among eight made by police. Three United fans were also arrested inside the Etihad.

Police had been on alert after a handful of known United hooligans were free to attend the game as their football banning orders had expired.

Before the game, police issued 35 'dispersal orders' to prevent trouble-makers getting to the ground.

Police bosses say the derby passed off relatively peacefully.

A spokesman for GMP confirmed officers attended Stanley Road in Beswick at 4.45pm, some 90 minutes after the final whistle but by then the mob had disappeared.

City beat United one-nil.

They confirmed they found a man of 48 with head injuries, although he was conscious. "He refused ambulance treatment," said the spokesman
