Manchester City entertained Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday evening looking to wrap up the Premier League title with a victory on the day. The Citizens began the match on the front foot and made the breakthrough in the 25th minute courtesy of their captain, Vincent Kompany’s header. The home side doubled their lead just five later when IIkay Gündogan scored with a smart finish from close range.
