Manchester United win derby

[Source : ITV]

Manchester United go three points clear at the top after an impressive 2-0 performance against city rivals City.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored from a free kick which got deflected into Shay Given's goal.

However,this goal was overshadowed by Tevez's fabulous goal at the stroke of halftime which left the defence as well as the keeper helpless as it was an unstoppable strike.The Argentine sending a strong message to Manchester United hierarchy to permanently acquire the services of the player who works his socks off and in his own words might exit at the end of the season when his loan deal expires.

2-0 advantage for the Red Devils at half time didn't subside into further goals as City weren't able to score either.

Controversial moment of the game came at the time when Ronaldo was substituted which wasn't taken keenly by the Portuguese winger as he grasped his jacket in frustration and sat mumbling and shaking his head in what can only be summed up as disbelief over the change.[Video]

Win puts Manchester United within four points of defending their league title.
