It was the biggest Manchester derby in history, and the blue half of the city took the spoils.

Roberto Mancini’s Manchester City beat Sir Alex Ferguson’s United, 1-0, thanks to Vincent Kompany’s header, meaning the Premier League title is theirs for the taking with two games to go.

If City complete the job, it will be the first title for the club since 1968. Meanwhile, United and their fans will be looking for a rock to hide under.

Here’s Bleacher Report world football lead writer Will Tidey breaking down the contest at the Etihad and addressing the implications of the Manchester rivalry.
