Leaders Manchester City go 11 points clear on derby day

Manchester City beat Manchester United 2-1 at Old Trafford to go 11 points clear at the top of the Premier League on Sunday.City’s victory marked the first time a team have won 14 consecutive English top-flight games in the same season and ended United’s run of 40 home games unbeaten in all competitions.Pep Guardiola’s side took the lead in the 43rd minute through David Silva but poor defending allowed United to hit back immediately with Marcus Rashford grabbing an equaliser before the break.Nicolas Otamendi volleyed in the winner on the half-turn nine minutes into the second half.City now have 46 points from 16 games, with United staying second on 35, and look like the title is theirs to lose even if Guardiola was not about to get carried away.“We won because we were better. We are still in December, if we have 11 points (lead) when we play the second derby in April then maybe I will tell you that we have the title,” said the Spaniard. Click for detailed story

It was his first goal in a match between two of English football’s greatest rivals.Mohamed Salah earlier fired Liverpool ahead with a 42nd-minute stunner that sent the Egyptian clear of Tottenham Hotspur’s England striker Harry Kane as the league’s top marksman with 13 goals this season.Liverpool stayed fourth with 30 points, 13 adrift of leaders Manchester City who were playing later at second-placed Manchester United.Chelsea are third on 32 with Sam Allardyce’s Everton moving up to 10th.While Salah’s goal was a breathtaking effort, the penalty left Klopp far from speechless with the German taking issue with the referee’s decision after Dejan Lovren was adjudged to have pushed Dominic Calvert-Lewin in the back.Lovren was still protesting with officials after the final whistle while Klopp argued with a Sky Sports television interviewer.Asked what he had said to the referee, Klopp replied: “That I don’t understand what he’s doing.

In fact, people who hold a foreign degree also face difficulties while getting a job. It is the responsibility of the government to ensure transparency in recruitment process. Only deserving candidates should fill vacant posts.Zamir Ahmed MemonShikarpur Click for detailed story
