Manchester City win at United to take a step closer to Premier League title
Manchester City struck an important blow in their pursuit of a second successive Premier League title with a convincing derby victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford.
Following a humiliating 4-0 defeat at Everton on Sunday, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made five changes to the United XI and he was rewarded with an enterprising first-half display.
After a first half lacking in clear-cut chances, City took the lead through Bernardo Silva on his 100th appearance for the club as his low shot from 15 yards beat David de Gea at his near post (54).
Sane put the away side 2-0 up on 66 minutes when his low strike from the inside left position hit the back of the net despite heavy contact from the lacklustre boot of De Gea.
Liverpool must now respond at home to relegated Huddersfield Town at Anfield on Friday, while City travel to Burnley on Sunday.
United stay sixth, three points off fourth-placed Chelsea, who they will face on Super Sunday.
