Manchester United maintained their good run of form with victory over Manchester City at home on Sunday.
The Red Devils got the better of City 4-2 at Old Trafford in the Manchester derby to enhance their chances of finishing in the top four of the Premier League this season.
United fell behind as early as the eighth minute when Argentina international striker Sergio Aguero put the Citizens in the lead.
It was United’s sixth Premier League win in a row and saw them end a dismal Manchester derby sequence.
The win means that the Red Devils are now third in the league table with 65 points from 32 matches, just a point behind second-placed Arsenal.
Following the match, a number of United players took to social networking site Twitter to revel in the triumph.
I enjoyed that... OT is a special place, especially on days like that. Sometimes 3 points means a little bit more. pic.twitter.com/129VNS4nux— Michael Carrick (@carras16) April 12, 2015
