Manchester United ended a four-match losing run against Manchester City in style on Sunday, beating their fierce rival 4-2 in the Premier League to signal a power shift for the red half of the city.

United's sixth straight league win came despite the soon-to-be-deposed champions going ahead through Sergio Aguero's eighth-minute opener. 

Ashley Young and Marouane Fellaini scored to put United ahead at halftime, before goals by Juan Mata and Chris Smalling in a seven-minute span midway through the second half - Aguero grabbed a late consolation for City.

The result will pile the pressure on City manager Manuel Pellegrini, whose team has now lost six of its last eight matches in a dreadful 2015.

City are fourth, 12 points behind leader Chelsea and United stayed third, four points ahead of City.
