London - Manchester United have overwhelmed champions Manchester City
4-2 to cement third place and effectively end their rivals hopes of
defending their Premier League title.
Sergio Aguero put City in front early on at Old Trafford but goals
from Ashley Young, Marouane Fellaini, Juan Mata and Chris Smalling
put United out of sight before Aguero grabbed his second late on.
The result left United third, one point behind second-placed Arsenal.
City stayed fourth and are now four points behind their crosstown
Chelsea restored their seven-point lead after winning 1-0 at Queens
Park Rangers earlier in the day.
