|Pep Guardiola celebrates after victory over United|
Manchester City moved a step closer to the Premier League title after comfortably beating Manchester United at Old Trafford with a 2-0 victory thanks to second half strikes from Bernardo Silva and Leroy Sane.
City now stand in favourite position to win the league with their fate standing in their hands while United may well have thrown the chance to make the top-four away. Pep Guardiola’s side are now on top of the table with 89 points, one point above Liverpool who are second while United are sixth with 64 points, three points off Chelsea who are fourth.
City have now won seven Premier League games at Old Trafford, more than any other side.
United have now lost seven of their last nine matches in all competitions after only losing one of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first 17 matches.
Guardiola is the first manager to win three consecutive Premier League away matches at Old Trafford.
This is the first time since August 1971 that United will fail to keep a clean sheet in 12 consecutive matches.
|Wolves dent Arsenal’s top-four hope|
Wolverhampton massively dealt with Lacklustre Arsenal thanks to a 3-1 victory on the night. First half goals by Ruben Neves, Matt Doherty and Diogo Jota was enough for wolves to dent Arsenal’s title hopes and Sokratis’ second half strike was not enough to savage any point for the Gunners. Unai Emery’s side clearly showed why they’ve not been a force to reckon with thanks to their inconsistency throughout the season. They now stand 5th with 66 points, one point below 4th Chelsea and it seems like the chance to finish in top-four is gone for good, but there might still be a shift with three matches to go. They could however still make the Champions League next season by winning the Europa League.
Wolves secured their first victory against Arsenal in all competitions since September 1979, an end to a 20-game winless streak.
Wolves have now beaten four sides of the top six teams this season.
