Manchester City continued their impressive march to Premier League glory with a 2-1 victory over Manchester United.
The match almost a title decider, as victory for United would have cut City’s lead to 5 points and kept them in the hunt.
City were able to secure the victory through goals from David Silva and Nicolas Otamendi, and now have what seems like an insurmountable 11 point lead at the top of the table.
City dominated the first half of the encounter, and got a deserved lead through Silva in the 43rd minute, hooking in from a corner after Romelu Lukaku headed the ball into the midfielder’s path.
United’s star forward Marcus Rashford equalized in the 45th minute just before half-time, slotting home from Otamendi and Fabian Delph’s defensive errors.
Otamendi handed the visitors the lead back in the 54th minute, brilliantly volleying past United’s David de Gea after Lukaku’s woeful clearance bounced off Chris Smalling’s back.
City’s shot-stopper Ederson was particularly instrumental in their victory, making two tremendous saves from both Lukaku and Mata.
The win was Manchester City’s 14th in a row, equaling a record set by Arsenal in 2002.
