Manchester City 1-0 Manchester United

Manchester City reclaimed control of the Premier League title race as Vincent Kompany’s header gave them victory over rivals Manchester United.

Kompany rose highest to head home David Silva’s corner at the end of a first half that had seen United frustrate the home side with a defensive display.

United were more positive after the break but City remained resolute.

City now lead United courtesy of their eight-goal superior goal difference with two games remaining in the season.

The win caps a remarkable comeback for City, whose title bid appeared to be over at the start of this month when a defeat at Arsenal left them eight points behind their fierce local foe at the top of the table.

It now promises to be a gripping final two weeks in the Premier League with City next travelling to Newcastle before hosting QPR and United facing Swansea at Old Trafford ahead of a final-day trip to Sunderland.
