The ballot results for the derby were out yesterday. There were 16,000 applications for the 2,600 tickets available to United fans, meaning just one in six applications were successful. There were a surprising number of Loyalty Pot and Executive members who missed out too.

Last season, a total of 164,000 applications were made for the 55,000 away tickets available.
