Premier League Derby Action

Manchester City outclassed their neighbors/arch rivals Manchester United on Wednesday and sealed a derby victory for themselves through a 2-0 win at Old Trafford.

For City this match was about displacing Liverpool from top of the League table and goals from Bernardo Silva and Leroy Sane in the second half helped them do just that.

City will retain the title for the second consecutive year if they win their last three league matches.

United were playing for a champions league qualification and a chance to redeem themselves after a 4-0 drubbing at the hands of Everton on Sunday.

The goalless first half built up anxiety among City’s players and fans but a calm and composed attitude in the second half helped them inflict a punishing defeat on United.

United’s keeper David de Gea was the focus of attention  when Bernardo Silva’s low drive went inside his near post after 54 minutes and the keeper was at fault again when Leroy Sane’s drive went straight through him.

Liverpool will have a chance to respond at home to relegated Huddersfield Town at Anfield on Friday.
