A solitary goal by Vincent Kompany in the Manchester derby gave all three points to City tonight, who are now keeping United 'company' at the top of the table with 83 points.


The noisy neighbours City completed a league double over United, following a 6-1 hammering of the Red Devils at Gold Trafford earlier in the season.


Only three weeks ago, everybody on the entire planet had written off the blue side of Manchester after a 1-0 defeat at Arsenal left them trailing United by eight points. However a shock defeat to Spanish side Athletico Wigan and a home draw with the merseyside blues, reopened the race - culminating in tonights result at the Etihad.


Now after an eight point deficit, City lead the table by superior goal difference of eight.


It now promises to be a gripping final two weeks in the Premier League with City next travelling to Newcastle before hosting QPR and United facing Swansea at Old Trafford ahead of a final-day trip to Sunderland.


Sir Alex Fergieson told reporters after the game "Football - bloody hell"

Roberto Mancini remarked "Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeessssssssssssssss!!!!"
