GALLERY: CITY CLAIM DERBY BRAGGING RIGHTS

Derby BernieManchester City took the derby bragging rights as we secured a crucial 2-0 win at Manchester United to take another huge step towards defending our Premier League title.




The opening half at Old Trafford had finished goalless in what was a tight, cagey affair.


But an early second half strike from Bernardo Silva eased the tension and nerves and allowed the Blues to gain a firm foothold on the game.


And substitute Leroy Sane then made sure of the points with a fine 65th minute finish to move us back to the top of the table a point clear of Liverpool with just three games to go and also create a new English top-flight record of 157 goals in a season.
