Second-half goals by Bernardo Silva and Leroy Sane earn champions 2-0 away victory

Manchester City returned to the top of the Premier League table with a 2-0 derby victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford. 

Bernardo Silva and Raheem Sterling were denied by David De Gea in a first half of few clear-cut chances. 

But Man City started the second half strongly and took the lead on 54 minutes, Bernardo Silva cutting in from the right to fire past De Gea.
