Manchester City returned to the top of the Premier League with just two games remaining after a deserved 1-0 win over Manchester United last night.

Having trailed United by 8 points three weeks ago, City are now above their rivals on goal difference after Vincent Kompany scored the winner late in the first half.

After the game, Roberto Mancini still insisted United are favourites for the title, claiming City face the tougher run in, with fixtures against Newcastle and QPR.

Elsewhere, Roy Hodgson could be confirmed as the new England manager later today, after holding "positive" talks with the FA yesterday afternoon.
