EPL: City Confirm Supremacy Over United In Manchester Derby
The true colour of Manchester is Blue as City on Sunday confirmed their supremacy over fierce rivals United with a 3-1 win in their derby clash at the Etihad.
The champions bossed it from start to finish, taking an early lead through David Silva and doubling the lead soon after the restart through Sergio Aguero.
Anthony Martial pulled one back from the spot before Ilkay Gundogan sealed the points in the dying moments.
The only goal in the first half came in the 12th minute when Raheem Sterling’s cross from the right looked over-hit, but Bernardo managed to hook the ball into the centre of the box where David Silva collected and then fired past De Gea to send the Etihad wild.
It took City just three minutes to double the lead after the restart.
Fernandinho won possession on the halfway line and gave it Bernardo who in turn fed Aguero.
The City striker took the ball to the edge of the box, played a one-two with Riyad Mahrez before firing a powerful angled drive past De Gea for his 11th of the season.
The introduction of Romelu Lukaku gave United a glimmer of hope as the Belgian won a penalty for the Red Devils and it was scored by Martial.
Any hope for a comeback by United was extinguished when Gundogan got the third goal for City in the 86th minute.
With the win, City keep their place at the summit of the EPL log wit a two-point cushion.
