Man City passes test against rival United, needs 2 more wins for first league title since '68
MANCHESTER, England (AP) ' Manchester City's victory over Manchester United sparked wild celebrations among the blue half of the city on Monday, yet two tricky fixtures lie between the team and its first English league title since 1968.
Vincent Kompany 's header in first-half stoppage time earned a 1-0 win to put City even with United on points with two games to play, but ahead on goal difference.
Assuming United wins its final two games against Swansea and Sunderland ' two teams with little to play for ' then City must also win its final two matches against teams that desperately need victories.
City's next game is away to a Newcastle United team still chasing Champions League qualificaton, followed by a match against a Queens Park Rangers side battling to avoid relegation.
