London, Sep 23: Manchester City have comprehensively beaten rivals Manchester United 4-1 at home as Sergio Aguero scored twice along with a Yaya Toure and a Samir Nasri goal.
According to Sky Sports, Wayne Rooney’s fantastic free kick in the 87th minute made him the top scorer in Manchester derbies with 11 goals, but it was scant consolation for David Moyes’ men.
City are two points behind joint leaders Arsenal and Tottenham after five games played, and three above United who lie eighth in the early table, the report said.
City and United move on to Capital One Cup assignments in midweek at home to Wigan and Liverpool respectively, the report added.
City’s next league game is away to Aston Villa next Saturday, when United host West Brom, the report further said. (ANI)
