Man Utd 1 Man City 2 : Super Eagles World Cup Rival Nets Winner, Tosins Not In 18Manchester City eased to a morale boosting 2-1 victory away to title rivals, Manchester United on Sunday evening, a win which took them eleven points clear  the race for the Premier League crown.

Young Nigerian defender, Tosin Adarabioyo had earlier been ruled out of the Citizens squad to face Manchester United at Old Trafford while Tosin Kehinde and Matthew Olosunde were equally not selected for the hosts.

Manchester City controlled the larger part of the possession for the opening minutes of the game, passing and probing but found their title rivals tough to break down as The Red Devils organized defense did well to contain Manchester City's attacking menace.

A relatively low key derby sparked into life and end to end action with two minutes left before the interval, David Silva put City in front with an acrobatic finish after Romelu Lukaku had failed to deal with a Leroy Sane corner.

United rallied round to grab an equaliser in the second minute of first half stoppage time, Fabian Delph botched
clearance was capitalised on by Marcus Rashford who slotted past Ederson to make it 1-1.

Super Eagles World Cup rival Otamendi powered City back into the lead after nine minutes of the restart as Manchester United's Jekyll and Hyde defending took another hit, Lukaku miscuing another clearance from a Kevin De Bruyne's cross into his teammate, Chris Smalling only for the Argentine defender to react quickly and volley home.
