A Manchester derby is a major event in the football world, we just never expected it to go down in a spin studio in Dubai's Al Quoz.

This week, Manchester United player Ashley Young was sweating it out with Manchester City players, Ilkay Gundogan and Leroy Sane, at popular Dubai indoor cycling studio, Crank.

The three were at the fitness studio on May 29 and took part in a ride class run by Talayeh Vaziri.

"They were awesome last night. Their positivity was infectious," one Crank rider wrote of the session on Instagram.

The studio shared photos of the players on its Instagram, with the caption, "Extra time at Crank with Manchester United Vs Man City ⚽️Thanks @youngy_18 @leroysane19 & @ilkayguendogan for RIDING with us last night and reaching some new type of goals."

Young and Sane have both kept low profiles on social media since touching down in the UAE, but Gundogan shared a photo of himself at Jumeirah Al Naseem on May 29, with the caption: "Dubai is always a good choice #BackAgain".

Ashley Young has been spotted by fans at Salt Bae's Nusr Et while in the UAE, along with fellow Manchester United player Paul Pogba, who has been in the emirate with his family for more than a week.

While staying in the UAE, Pogba visited the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and dined at the Bulgari Resort's Hoseki restaurant.
