City hits six past United
Manchester City beat arch-rivals Manchester United 6-1 to inflict a rare defeat on its near neighbours.
Man United had not lost at home since April 2010 in season 2009/10 and went through the whole of the 2010/11 season unbeaten at home.
All that changed with City maintaining their top position on the table after handing the champions their heaviest defeat in the Premier League.
With that win, City has created a five point buffer at the top.
Chelsea failed to take advantage of the United's loss after losing 1-nil to Queens Park Rangers.
The first half penalty for QPR was enough to give them maximum points at Loftus Road for the first time this campaign.
In another derby in the Midlands, West Bromwich Albion overcame Aston Villa 2-1. It was the Baggies first win over Villa in the Premier League at Villa Park.
Here is a table for the home matches only so far:
