MOST COMMENTED

[VIDEO PICK] Manchester City erased the last of the eight-point lead Manchester United held on Easter, defeating United, 1-0, to take over first place on goal difference in the English Premier League with two games to play. City's attack is loaded with high-priced players, but it was Belgian defender Vincent Kompany who had the winner with a header in stoppage time of the first half. For all the video highlights ...

TRIVIA. The win moved City within sight of its first Premier League title and first top-flight title since 1968.

MAN. CITY REACTION. "It's a great victory but we have two difficult games left and United have two easy games. United are still favorites. (United's opponents) Swansea and Sunderland have nothing to play for. I am very happy that we are top but it doesn't change anything. United put all their players behind the ball and only one striker. They wanted the draw. They played a different game to usual. We deserved to win." -- Man. City manager Roberto Mancini.

MAN. UNITED REACTION. "It was feisty and competitive as we expected and there were not a lot of goal chances. David de Gea only had one save to make but I'm disappointed we never tested their goalkeeper to be honest. It was a damaging result, they are in the driving seat and we are up against it. They only need to win two more games and they win the league, simple as that. It's not over yet, of course it's not over, there is still football to play. But the situation is that they have an eight goal advantage which is a big advantage at this stage." -- Man. United manager Alex Ferguson.

NEXT UP. City travels to fifth-place Newcastle United Sunday before finishing with a final home game against QPR on May 13. United has an easier schedule, finishing up against Swansea City on Sunday and at Sunderland a week later.
