MANCHESTER, England (AP) - Edin Dzeko scored inside 43 seconds and again in the second half as Manchester City inflicted more misery on Manchester United with a 3-0 win on Tuesday, cutting its deficit to Premier League leader Chelsea to three points.

Yaya Toure added a third goal in the 90th minute to seal United's second humiliating 3-0 loss to a fierce rival at Old Trafford in 10 days, following its humbling by Liverpool. It ensured the champions will finish with its lowest points haul in the Premier League era and jeopardized its hopes of even qualifying for next season's Europa League.

Dzeko set City on its way to a one-sided victory - and a derby double in the league - with the quickest ever Premier League away goal at Old Trafford.
