Two goals from Edin Dzeko increased the pressure on under-fire Manchester United boss David Moyes last night.
Manchester City were easy 3-0 winners at Old Trafford in a win that saw Manuel Pellegrini's men leap to just three points behind leaders Chelsea with two games in hand. Two goals from Dzeko and one late on from Yaya Toure saw United slumber to their second 3-0 home defeat in a row.
City's impressive display cut short United's hope of a good run in and a Europa League place by finishing in the top six; they now sit five point behind Tottenham. The 2011/12 champions have been the dominant figure in both this season's Manchester derbies, winning the first 4-1 at the Etihad and winning 3-0 last night. This has been the story for a while, but Moyes will need to look at strengthening his squad in the summer.
United sit 15 points behind their rivals, the worst record from them in the whole Premier league era. The Red Devils never looked like winning, especially after Samir Nasri's shot rebounded kindly for Dzeko after just 42 seconds. They never really bounced back with Juan Mata side-footing over the bar from a good position just before the break.
Dzeko was the scorer once more with a good finish from a corner 11 minutes into the second half. Yaya Toure finished United off in stoppage time with a low finish, scoring his 17th Premier League goal of the season.
