City come away winners in Manchester Derby

Champions Manchester City moved 12 points ahead of rivals Manchester United in the Premier League with a hard-fought 3-1 win in Sunday’s derby.

David Silva opened the scoring as the leaders made a blistering start at the Etihad Stadium and Sergio Aguero doubled the advantage with his eighth derby goal after the break.

United, who were without Paul Pogba, responded through Anthony Martial after substitute Romelu Lukaku won a penalty but Ilkay Gundogan wrapped up victory for the hosts.
