David Silva, Sergio Aguero and Ilkay Gundogan all got on the score-sheet to secure three vital points.
Having lost top spot earlier in the day following Liverpool's 2-0 victory against Fulham at Anfield, City held off a brief second-half United fightback to claim all three points. "Even defensively, despite conceding three goals, it was a positive performance - it is individual mistakes".
Had the goal not been given, it is likely the referee would have awarded a penalty after Chris Smalling had pulled down Aguero.
It took just ten minutes for the first goal to arrive, David Silva scoring his seventh of the season.

Wednesday was the second straight game the team scored six goals in a match, and Man City has 22 goals in its last five contests as it challenges for silverware on multiple fronts.
