An early start in Melbourne to watch the Manchester Derby with kick off at 5am but with the game falling on ANZAC day it became a public holiday.
Manchester City struck an important blow in their pursuit of a second successive Premier League title with a convincing derby victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford.
Pep Guardiola's side knew anything but a win would leave Liverpool at the top of the table and in charge of their own destiny with only three games left.
City were anxious in a goalless first 45 minutes but turned up the heat after the break to take them one point clear at the top of the table.
They have played the same number of games as Liverpool, performing with control and composure to eventually outclass United.
Bernardo Silva's low drive went inside United keeper David de Gea's near post after 54 minutes and the keeper was at fault again when Leroy Sane's drive went straight through him.
