Manchester City took control of the Premier League title race with two games remaining after a derby victory saw them leapfrog rivals Manchester United at the top of the table.

Vincent Kompany's header in first-half stoppage time gave City the win that means they have wiped out the eight-point advantage held by United three weeks ago, and move to the summit on goal difference.

City needed the victory while Sir Alex Ferguson knew a draw would suit his purposes more than opposite number Roberto Mancini - and this was reflected in his team selection that saw Wayne Rooney desperately isolated as a lone striker.

In a game of few chances, City were the more positive side and deserved the three points on offer in what had been labelled the biggest game in the Premier League's 20-year history.
