Manchester United won the derby, Liverpool lost at home again, Rangers won the title in Scotland and England lost the fourth Test in India.

Bruno Fernandes and Luke Shaw struck early in each half as Manchester United ended Manchester City's 21-match winning run with a stunning 2-0 derby victory.

The surprise result at the Etihad Stadium came after reigning champions Liverpool slumped to a sixth straight home defeat to Fulham, who boosted their Premier League survival chances with the 1-0 win at Anfield.

In Scotland, Rangers won the league title for the first time in a decade after their win over St Mirren was followed by Celtic's 0-0 draw with Dundee United.

Away from the football, England's cricketers lost the fourth Test against India to suffer a 3-1 series defeat, while rugby union's former European champions Saracens lost to Cornish Pirates in their opening game in the Greene King IPA Championship.
