Manchester United claimed a crucial derby win and enhanced their chances of claiming the Premier League title thanks to a wonder goal from Wayne Rooney late on.
Luis Nani had put the home side ahead in a cagey first half and for all City’s possession they could not force any real chances on target although David Silva did go close early on and Yaya Toure was seemingly running the midfield battle.
Manchester City did level mid way through the second half when an Edin Dzeko effort went in off David Silva to level matters. However Wayne Rooney put away a fantastic overhead kick from a Nani cross to win the game for the Old Trafford side.
