City beat 10-man United in Manchester derby

10 Jan 2017
Man Utd 1-3 Man City, PL2

Simon Davies's side cut gap on PL2 leaders Everton to two points with 3-1 victory

Manchester City scored three second-half goals to close in on Premier League 2 Division 1 leaders Everton with a 3-1 win over Manchester United at Leigh Sports Village.

United defender Regan Poole was shown a straight red card for a foul early on but the hosts held out until the 51st minute when Brahim Diaz put Simon Davies's City ahead.

Sean Goss quickly equalised but Isaac Buckley-Ricketts restored their lead and then Paolo Fernandes made the match safe with the third.

Man City are now two points behind the Toffees, while last season's champions United are winless in five league matches and two points above the relegation zone.

City's next match is at home to Tottenham Hotspur at the City Football Academy this Friday, while United face Liverpool at Anfield next Monday.
