Vincent Kompany's first-half stoppage time header against Manchester United was only his sixth goal for City, and it could be the most important goal of the 2011-2012 Premier League season.
The Manchester City captain's header stood up for the rest of the scintillating Manchester Derby at Etihad Stadium Monday evening and put City atop the table, level with Manchester United on points but plus-eight on goal difference.
With two games to go, the title is City's to lose, but they don't have an easy road ahead.
Elsewhere, Fernando Torres and Luis Suarez notched their first hat tricks for Chelsea and Liverpool, respectively, and Wigan dealt a serious blow to Newcastle's Champions League hopes.
It was another thrilling weekend in England, so besides the fact that Eric Wynalda should never be allowed to tweet, let alone during the biggest game of the season, what else have we learned?
