Vincent Kompany scored the only goal as Manchester City beat title rivals Manchester United to go top of the Barclays Premier League.
Kompany rose above the Manchester United defence to head in from a David Silva centre in first-half injury-time.
City striker Sergio Aguero twice went close in the opening period, volleying over and then shooting wide.
Yaya Toure went close with two second-half shots, Aguero fired into the side-netting from a difficult angle and Gael Clichy had an effort saved by David de Gea's legs as City pushed for a second goal.
Reigning champions United struggled to carve out any chances as they slipped behind City on goal difference with two matches remaining.
