Second-half goals form Bernardo Silva and substitute Leroy Sane gave Manchester City a 2-0 derby triumph over Manchester United as Pep Guardiola's men edged back ahead of Liverpool in the Premier League title race.
Following a humiliating 4-0 defeat at Everton on Sunday, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made five changes to the United XI and he was rewarded with an enterprising first-half display.
But PFA Player of the Year nominee Silva broke the deadlock in the 54th minute and Sane gave the off-colour David de Gea another moment to forget 12 minutes later.
City are a point ahead of Liverpool, knowing victories in their final three games will guarantee back-to-back titles and complete two-thirds of an unprecedented domestic treble.
Jesse Lingard volleyed wide from Paul Pogba's exquisite 16th-minute pass as an end-to-end contest began to develop – De Gea beating away Silva's rasping drive before United sprung up the field and Marcus Rashford was denied by an alert Ederson.
City gradually found their poise as half-time approached, with De Gea thwarting Raheem Sterling at the end of a deft move in the United box.
Fernandinho hobbled off injured after making a brilliant tackle on Pogba early in the second half.
Sane's introduction meant Ilkay Gundogan dropping back to the base of the midfield and Silva dropping into a central role, and the two men combined in their new positions as the Portugal international caught out De Gea at his near post.
Sergio Aguero then hit a rasping shot against the outside of the same upright but Lingard passed up a chance to level when Rashford's bouncing ball across goal evaded Vincent Kompany and the England midfielder.
Sterling's charge around Fred to tee up Sane was the nerve-settling moment City required and United's earlier verve evaporated as a result.
Goal! City makes it 2-0 with a definitive strike from Leroy Sane. Although de Gea should have done so much better with that effort.
Chance! Lingard completely misses his shot at the back post! Any connection on that and it's 1-1!
Goal! Bernardo Silva breaks the deadlock. A surging run from the Portuguese attacker and a swift shot to the near post flies past de Gea. City go 1-0 up!
Chance! Bernardo Silva smashes a shot goal bound. de Gea pushes the effort away! Up the other end and United go on the charge!
Peep! We are underway at Old Trafford!
5 minute warning! How bad is that Man City training top by the way?
Doom and gloom in the studio, with former City player Nigel de Jong, claims that no top players want to move to Old Trafford anymore.
Now for Manchester City! Three changes to the side that beat Spurs 1-0 at the weekend. Vincent Kompany, David Silva and Fernandinho come in. Phil Foden has to settle for a place on the bench!
