MANILA, Philippines – Manchester City are back on top of the English Premier League (EPL) after a 1-0 victory over crosstown rivals Manchester United.

Team captain Vincent Kompany’s powerful header sealed the deal for City, putting Roberto Mancini’s side within two victories of EPL glory.

The Manchester rivals both have 83 points, but City hold a superior goal difference of eight.

The momentum is now with Mancini’s side, who have clawed back from an eight-point deficit since Easter to move within sight of a first top flight title since 1968. Mornings @ ANC, May 1, 2012.
