Video: PL Highlights: Man City/Man Utd

Here are highlights from yesterday’s Manchester derby if you missed it. City held on for a 1-0 home win to draw level with United on points.

Roberto Mancini‘s side has the advantage on goal difference and will claim the title if it can win its final two games of the regular season. Wild stuff, considering they were down eight points to the Red Devils not too long ago.
