Manchester City continued their dominance of the Premier League on Sunday after beating Manchester United 4-1 at Etihad Stadium.

Pep Guardiola’s side did not only win the match but displayed class and superb performance at the Manchester derby.

Having played one game more after a victory that was arguably even more convincing than the scoreline suggests, City remain six points clear of Liverpool.

The Reds were without some key players, injured Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani, as well as Raphael Varane and Luke Shaw, who have Covid-19, and found themselves overwhelmed by the quality and intensity of the reigning champions.

Talented City midfielder, Kevin de Bruyne opened scoring for his side and went ahead to restore their lead before half-time. The response for United came through Jadon Sancho after he put the Red Devils level with precise low strike,

City after making up their mind not to settle for a draw responded with the second again through the Belgian.

The quest to win kept City on their toes and they were rewarded with a goal after the break in the 68 minutes. Riyad Mahrez met De Bruyne’s corner on the half-volley to beat United keeper David de Gea.
