Best of the action: Derby delight

Manchester City produced a superb display to claim the 177th Manchester derby and so maintain our lead at the top of the Premier League.

Goals from David Silva, Sergio Aguero and Ilkay Gundogan earned Pep Guardiola’s side a deserved win in what was a dominant all-round display.

Silva struck first early in the first half after great work by Bernardo before Aguero powered home a stunner early after the restart.

And though Romelu Lukaku pulled a goal back for United with a second half penalty, City made sure of a crucial and thoroughly merited victory through Ilkay Gundogan’s late strike.

It was the perfect way for the Blues to sign off ahead of the international break after a run of five victories in 13 days across three competitions.
