Manchester City beat Man United 2-1, leads EPL by 11


Manchester City took charge of the Premier League title race as they handed Manchester United a 2-1 defeat at Old Trafford in the season’s first Manchester derby on Sunday.

In a game dominated by City, David Silva gave Pep Guardiola’s side the lead late in the first half after a defensive lapse from United.

However, United hit back moments later when Vincent Kompany failed to track a run by Marcus Rashford, who calmly finished past Ederson.

In the second half, United made a similar mistake to the one from the first goal and Nicolas Otamendi pounced on it to hand City a 2-1 lead.

Late in the game, Ederson pulled off a crucial double save from Romelu Lukaku and Juan Mata to deny United an equaliser and hand three points to City.

Guardiola’s side now has a 11-point lead at the top of the Premier League standings.
