Video footage appears to show Herrera spitting on the large City crest that covers the ground outside the tunnel as the players went in at the break with City two goals up.
Manchester United have reacted to claims that midfielder, Ander Herrera, deliberately spat at Manchester City crest at half-time of their (United) 3-2 win over City on Saturday. "It was entirely accidental and there was no intent whatsoever", the spokesperson said.
The Spain global set up Paul Pogba for the first of two fine goals for the France star, as United came from behind to stop City confirming their inevitable Premier League title.
Defender Vincent Kompany says that Manchester City should have been "more cautious" during the second half of the derby clash with Manchester United.

One school of thought may be the team uses the two first round picks to move up in the first round to grab a quarterback early. In a spread offense, Rudolph completed 63.2 percent of his passes for 13,618 yards, 92 touchdowns and 26 interceptions.
It was a bitterly disappointing game, not least because we dominated the first half and led 2-0. But, the second-half spell was a sign of the pair returning to their forms when Chilean has now had four goals in his past two league plays for his side and Pogba is finally back on his scoring form since November.
"Speaking about the half-time team talk, Herrera said: "[Saturday] was not about tactics. Our pride on the pitch and that our fans were going to have a hard night if we got beaten. "I was thinking at half-time that it was going to be hard for them if we got beaten so I'm happy for them".
Alongside a celebratory picture of himself, Herrera tweeted at full-time: "Never underestimate Manchester United".
