With two successive wins, City is now at third in the table with 12 wins, four draws and three losses in the points table, which gives them 40 points, just two short of the toppers.
Chelsea was also able to control a late Luton Town fightback, beating them 3-2 in a thrilling affair at Kenilworth Road.
Cole Palmer secured an early lead by driving home a pass by Issa Kabore in the 12th minute. Before the half time, Noni Madueke doubled the lead with a strike in the 37th minute.
Palmer hit a brace, scoring in the 70th minute to triple the lead.
But two fighting goals from Ross Barkley (80th minute) and Elijah Adebayo (87th minute) kept Luton alive. Chelsea was able to control their fightback to end their four-match away losing streak.
Chelsea is in the 10th spot with eight wins, four draws and eight losses in 20 games, which gives them 28 points. Luton is in the 18th spot with four wins, three draws and 12 losses this year, with 15 points. (ANI)
