2. Emmanuel Adebayor comes off the bench to score and, after a restrained and dignified celebration, lifts his shirt to reveal a moving dedication to Gooners everywhere.

Gary Neville celebrates bagging the winner by running to the centre spot, dropping his shorts and mooning at Carlos Tevez.

4. Roberto Mancini paces the technical area while modelling the new nylon City tracksuit, available from the club merchandise catalogue now.

5. In the event of a United victory, the Glazer brothers engage in a lap of honour, all the better to revel in the appreciation tumbling from the stands for their part in the perpetuation of the United success story.
