Man Utd win seven-goal thriller while City lose
LONDON (REUTERS) - Manchester United trailed three times before a last-gasp goal from Javier Hernandez earned a rip-roaring 4-3 win over Newcastle United that opened a seven-point lead at the top of the Premier League on Wednesday.
Elsewhere, Manchester City were undone by former winger Adam Johnson in the 53rd minute as he scored the only goal in a 1-0 victory for Sunderland.
Champions Manchester City are second in the table, four points ahead of Chelsea who won 1-0 at Norwich City thanks to a 20-metre strike from Juan Mata.
As they have done so many times this season, Manchester United fell behind when James Perch scored after four minutes at Old Trafford.
