Džeko at the double as City win Manchester derby

Manchester City FC – having played two games less – are within three points of leaders Chelsea FC after a 3-0 victory at Manchester United FC shaped by two Edin Džeko goals.

Edin Džeko scored in each half as Manchester City FC heaped more misery on Manchester United FC with a 3-0 win at Old Trafford that lifts them up to second in the Premier League.

City, now three points behind Chelsea FC with two games in hand, took the lead after only 48 seconds, Džeko following up to score from close range after Samir Nasri had struck the woodwork.

The Bosnia and Herzegovina forward turned in his tenth league goal of the season 11 minutes into the second half, evading Rio Ferdinand from a Nasri corner and placing a side-foot volley inside the near post. Yaya Touré drove in a late third for Manuel Pellegrini's team.

United have now lost ten games this term, the most in a single season since the inception of the Premier League in 1992, and six at home – one more than in the three previous campaigns combined.

Fourth-placed Arsenal FC, beaten 6-0 on Saturday by Chelsea FC, drew 2-2 at home with Swansea City AFC. Quick-fire strikes by Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud seemed to have turned the fixture the Gunners' way, only for the unfortunate Mathieu Flamini to score a last-gasp own goal.

Everton FC moved above Tottenham Hotspur FC into fifth after an impressive 3-0 victory at Newcastle United FC, a solo effort from Ross Barkley the pick of the goals.
