Manchester City again frustrated Manchester United by grabbing a late victory and all three points. The score showed 1-1 and the clock 83 minutes when Pep Guardiola’s men produced yet another dramatic winner.
Kevin De Bruyne nonchalantly flicked a ball over from the right and there was an acrobatic David Silva to hit home. This sent the Etihad Stadium into raptures, made it nine points claimed in the closing eight minutes of matches this term, and ensured City remain eight points ahead of United. The Manchester derby is next up, at Old Trafford on Sunday, and José Mourinho’s men must surely win that to keep their title hopes realistic.
