Manchester City remains in poleposition to the Premier League to win. The Blues took the 0-2 of city rival Manchester United after a moderate contest. With still three days to go against teams from the bottom of the standings seem to be the Blues on the way to the title in the Premier League.

One Belgian at the kick-off during this Manchester Derby: Vincent Kompany started alongside Aymeric Laporte in the City while his team-mate Kevin De Bruyne missing with an injury, and Romelu Lukaku passed was for Marcus Rashford. His coach Ole Gunnar Solksjaer opted for a vijfmansdefensie after the debacle against Everton (4-0 loss). The stakes were clear: a draw or a loss would be Manchester City the leading position with three days to go and lose to Liverpool.

The initial phase was mainly for Man U, not incomprehensible for a full house and after a painful defeat. Kompany had it difficult with the aalvlugge Rashford and had after ten minutes all yellow tackle by the striker. Andreas Pereira and Oleksander Zinchenko picked up early yellow. The poison was in the team that mainly recupereerde and the two strikers Rashford-Lingard aanspeelde, because after a quarter of an hour blasted Lingard a beautiful cross pass from Paul Pogba just about.

Nervous City

City seemed to be nervous at Old Trafford, where the thuisspelers a lot more aggressive opened. The Reds kept up their offensive, but a thick half full, then took City the grip on the game. Much did the Blues not: the well-known waves remained omitted. Raheem Sterling dribbled well, Sergio Aguero kicked off next. But Manchester went for a rest with a brilscore without too much shine.

City started with a damper on the second half. Very soon it had Fernandinho to the side with an injury. The metronome is important in the positional game of coach Guardiola, but with a substitute Leroy Sané can be difficult to speak of weakening in the visitors. It says a lot about the qualities of this team. After 54 minutes it was the patience of City. Luke Shaw was too easy afgetroefd by Bernardo Silva. The Portuguese was then to be easy in the short corner, David De Gea to beat. A beautiful gift for himself in his hundredth match in the shirt of the Blues.

Substitute Lukaku

Man, You reacted a little furious, but took a long time that flare. City took advantage by the bad leader of the midfield, Aguero pulled it open for the incoming Sané. The German remained calm and kicked the double lead through Ederson in goal. Romelu Lukaku got another nineteen minutes to go his opportunity and kicked quickly at the fists of The Gea. Alexis Sanchez should also have raids, but did not make a difference. City seems to be on the way to the title, Manchester United is on the sucker since Solksjaer his contract signed.

In the rankings, has reigning champion City, with still three days to go, one point more than Liverpool. United had the opportunity to Arsenal to fifth place to look.

Arsenal got themselves a solid defeat bounded by Wolverhampton. With Leander Dendoncker in the base gave the Wolves the Gunners a 3-0 pandoering, allowing Man to the fifth place could jump. By the defeat in the Manchester Derby, that happened so, but the Reds remain in the track even despite this loss.

Three finals

With opponents Burnley (15th), Leicester City (9th) and Brighton (17th) has City an easy program to work in the Premier League. The only home game is against Leicester, probably the best opponent. Liverpool has as a residual program: the already condemned Huddersfield (20th) at home, Newcastle (13th) and Wolverhampton (10th) home on the last day.
