Manchester United 1 Manchester City 3 27 March 1968 Manchester City (without a league title since 1937) played away at Manchester United (without a league title since 1967) sitting two points behind both their local rivals and Leeds United. With only two points awarded for a win, they could not afford to lose, something that looked likely when George Best put the home side ahead inside 60 seconds. But City dominated thereafter, with Colin Bell, George Heslop and Francis Lee all scoring.
Manchester City required a fantastic second-half comeback to keep the title race in their own hands as they drew 2-2 at West Ham.
The Liverpool star leads the golden boot race while his Tottenham rival has continued to close the gap in the standings this week.
