Manchester City got stronger at Etihad Stadium in the Manchester derby (3-1). Pep Guardiola's team remains a leader solitaire thanks to three goals by Silva, Agüero and Gündogan, enough to break the upward run of a United which had won two straight wins, three in the last four games. The locals have opened the can soon, after Silva took advantage of a great move by Mahrez from the left in the 11th minute to sign 1-0.
The game was quite disputed until the break, but at the beginning of the re-start a great triangulation between Aguero and Sterling ended the Argentinian with a powerful shot that overtaken De Gea. United has been against the ropes, but quickly managed to shorten distances through a penalty committed by Ederson. Martial has not missed the opportunity and scored 2-1. The City has managed to maintain the advantage and the final stretch Gündogan has established the ruling with the third goal of the game.
The City thus resists Liverpool's push, which has won Fulham (2-0) and continues to push the team 'cityzen'. Chelsea, on the other hand, has not been able to pass the tie with Everton (0-0) and goes down to four points of the leader. Tottenham did not fail, which was imposed on the field of the Crystal Palace (0-1). Arsenal did not work, who tied for a surprise home against Wolverhampton Wanderers (1-1).
