PEEP! PEEP! PEEEEEEEEEEEEP! FULLTIME!

Manchester City win this in a way that no one thought possible - winning with two goals from two set-pieces - while Romelu Lukaku makes more impact inside his own box than he does the other.

City lead United by ELEVEN points now. 22 games left, is there even a race now?

That's all from me Anirudh Menon. 

Toodle-ooo!
...
94' City win two corners in succession... this is done. 
...
93' De Bruyne picks out Bernardo Silva with an absolutely out-of-this-world ball into him but the Portuguese midfielder is foiled by De Gea. 
...
91' Man City are shamelessly, and brilliantly, killing this game dead by holding it at the corner flag. It's been there for two minutes now. 
...
90' There will be four minutes added on. 
...
89' Sterling is keeping the ball in the corner. Young somehow manages to circumvent that massive backside of his and kick it out. Sterling does it again and Young takes his legs from under him. Yellow for the left-back
...
87' Man City make their final change as Leroy Sane is escorted out by Michael Oliver and is replaced by Bernardo Silva. 
...
84' OH MY GOOD LORD. OH. MY. GOOD. LORD! Ibra held up the ball superbly to play it to Mata, who swung a superb little ball out to Martial - the Frenchman squares it to Lukaku. The Belgian smashes it at Ederson, who saves with his chin, then does even better to make himself large and stop Mata's follow-up! Then Mangala hammered it clear off the line. WHAT AMAZING GOALKEEPING. WHAT INSANELY POOR FINISHING. 
...
83' Mata tries to steal in behind City's defensive line but fails to do so before Otamendi steps up intelligently. 
...
82' Zlatan Andy-Carrolls his way into Otamendi... but he's also offside and the ref blows his whistle for one of the two
...
81' Ander Herrera is off, Juan Mata is off. Nemanja Matic, and Nemanja Matic alone, is Manchester United's midfield. 
...
80' City punt it upfield and it's a goalkick for United. no really, a  Pep team just punted it up the field. 
...
78' FIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGHT!!!! Herrera goes down under pressure from Otamendi and Michael Oliver gives the Basque a yellow for diving
...
77' Lukaku and Zlatan are playing as a traditional front two. Rashford and Martial are what make this non-traditional, though. United are playing a bleeding 4-2-4... and City are parking the bus. We've seen it all ladies and gentlemen, 
...
75' Another error from Delph allows Rashford to run onto a standard Matic punt up the field and his rasping shot is saved well by Ederson... corner for United but before Rashford takes it, Ibrahimovic trots on for Lingard. The lion is on the field. 
...
74' Silva gets pulled up for another nasty little tackle on Lingard. Hatchet-man David. Rashford then gets pulled up for a foul on Delph.... he was through there, the Englishman and Old Trafford is not a happy man. 
...
72' Matic and De Bruyne get together in the physical fashion... and the ref takes the break to flash an unusually violent Silva a deserved yellow. 
...
71' UFF! De Bruyne runs at United and lets fly with his left foot. but De Gea pulls off a superb save! Corner for City - but United counter at searing pace -Martial can't find a way through, and Lingard is pickpocketed by Silva... before the Spaniard then steams into both Herrera and Matic but the ref waves play on. 
...
70' Rashford takes it like Ronaldo... that lovely knuckleball technique. Like most of Ronaldo's recent efforts, it ends up high in the stands.
...
69' OOO! Young steals a Delph pass and lays it off to Martial who streams forward.... Sterling brings him down in the professional manner, but he escapes a caution. Somehow. 
...
68' Sane And Silva run circles around United's defence before the German gallops into space and lifts a lovely ball into the box that needs a deflection from Lindelof to take it away from a waiting Gundogan
...
65' Lingard gets on the ball and feeds in Lukaku... the Belgian runs onto it, squares up Mangala and smashes it into the nethersphere with his right foot. Oh, that was poor. 
...
64' OH MY LORD! SILVA DRIFTS OUT WIDE ON ONE OF THOSE COUNTERS BEFORE STANDING ON THE BALL AND TEEING UP GUNDOGAN WHO'S CUT BACK PASSES STRAIGHT ACROSS THE FACE OF THE GOAL AND INTO YOUNG'S FEET
...
63' United are piling on the pressure but the men in light blue are holding firm. Mangala's presence means they are winning quite a lot more headers than before and this is helping City counter...
...
62' Rashford doesn't get a decision as City win a throw - and he gets a yellow for throwing the ball into the ground in frustration. Oh, for crying out loud.... how is that a yellow?
