Manchester United Factsbook Review: Manchester United 4 Manchester City 2, Old Trafford, English Premier League, April 12, 2015. Manchester United cemented their chances of qualifying for the Champions League with a 4-2 triumph over Manchester City. After gaining three points against The Sky Blues, United were now in third position in the Premier League table, one point behind Arsenal.
Manchester United defeated Manchester City by 4-2 in a highly competitive and entertaining game at Old Trafford, with Ashley Young, Marouane Fellaini, Juan Mata, and Chris Smalling scoring the goals for the home team, and Sergio Aguero finding the net on two occasions for the visitors. Since losing 1-0 against City at Etihad Stadium on the 2nd of November the previous year, United had suffered only two defeats in 22 Premier League fixtures, and they now had 65 points from 32 matches played.
