City Beats United; Bayern Clinches Bundesliga

Edin Dzeko

MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Manchester City’s title run gained momentum with a 3-0 win at rival Manchester United on Tuesday night, and Arsenal’s hopes of winning the Premier League dimmed with a 2-2 tie against Swansea.

Edin Dzeko scored inside 43 seconds, added a goal in the 56th minute and Yayo Toure scored in the 90th at Old Trafford as City (21-5-3) closed within three points of first-place Chelsea (21-4-6), which has played two more games.

Defending champion United (15-10-6) is seventh, 12 points back of fourth-place Arsenal (19-6-6) for England’s final Champions League berth. With seven games left, United is assured of its fewest points since the Premier League era began in 1992-93.
