Vincent Kompany's header gave Manchester City a 1-0 win against Manchester United on Monday to overtake its rival on top of the Premier League with two games remaining.
Kompany connected with David Silva's corner kick for the only goal in first-half stoppage time at the Etihad Stadium. City held on for a potentially title-deciding victory as it now leads United on goal difference.

After leading the Premier League for most of the season, City trailed United by eight points on April 8. But two more wins should be enough to claim a first league title since 1968.
Assuming United wins its final two games against Swansea and Sunderland - two teams with little to play for - then City must also win its final two matches against teams that desperately need victories.
City's next game is away to a Newcastle United team still chasing Champions League qualification, followed by a season-ender against a Queens Park Rangers side battling against relegation.
"It's not finished," said City manager Roberto Mancini. "If we think it's finished it will be a big mistake."
