In the battle of Manchester there was a changing of the guard. Utd overtook City after their win over West Brom and following City's loss to Swansea.
Wayne Rooney was the goalscorer scoring his 19th and 20th goal of the season. His opportunism and Ashley Young's architecture down the flanks were instrumental in the victory. West Brom did come into Old Trafford with some momentum having won the last three matches but Rooney's opportunism put an end to that streak. Jonas Olsson already on a booking was sent off for a second infraction in the 66th minute as West Brom's plans changed to damage limitation.
What does City have left in the tank? They have a 30th April meeting against Utd which could prove immense providing they do what is right in between. Their upcoming fixtures look like this: Chelsea (H), Stoke (A), Sunderland (H), Arsenal (A), West Brom (H), Norwich (A), Wolves (A), Man Utd (H), Newcastle (A), QPR (H).
Utd have an easier go. Wolves (A), Fulham (H), Blackburn (A), QPR (H), Wigan (A), Aston Villa (H), Everton (H), Man City (A), Swansea (H), Sunderland (A).
