Manchester CIty Vs Manchester United Highlights: Manchester United secure their 1rst place spot of the premier League with a 3-2 victory against their rivals Manchester City with Robin Van Persie scoring a late goal that changed the final outcome of the game.
The home side simply dominated the opening minutes of the game but Balotelli and Aguero just weren’t going through the best of times as they wasted a big number of chances they had on scoring.
On the other hand Manchester United made the most of the fewer goal-scoring chances they had. Ashley Young picked out Rooney at the edge of the box and the English forward scored the 1rst of the game as he slipped it into the opposite side of where Joe Hart was standing.
Vincent Kompany was later taken off the pitch after suffering from what seemed to be a groin injury. He was replaced by Kolo Toure.
Rooney scored the 2nd goal of the game at the 29th minute after receiving the ball down the right flank and edging into the box of Joe Hart once more.
In the 2nd half Balotelli was replaced by Tevez and City started scoring goals. Yaya Toure netted the 1rst after linking up with the Argentinean player and putting it past David De Gea.
City at this point was going all in with relentless attacks they got themselves the equalizer through Zabaleta at the 86th minute but it wouldn’t matter as Robin Van Persie had the last laugh as he scored with a free-kick in injury time and edging the victory for Manchester United.
