EPL: Rashford, Fernandes Edge Man Utd Past Man City

EPL: Rashford, Fernandes Edge Man Utd Past Man City

Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes

Bruno Fernandes' controversial goal and Marcus Rashford's tap-in edged Manchester United in a 2-1 comeback win over local rival Manchester City to move third on standings in thrilling derby on Saturday.

Both United goals came in the final 12 minutes as Erik ten Hag's side moved to within one point of their local rivals in the table after inflicting a damaging blow to City's hopes of retaining the title.

Pep Guardiola's men looked to be heading to victory when Jack Grealish came off the bench to head the visitors into the lead.

 

But Bruno Fernandes' controversial equaliser turned the game and four minutes later Rashford netted for the ninth consecutive match at Old Trafford.

City could now fall eight points off the top of the table should Arsenal beat Tottenham in the north London derby on Sunday.

The victory for United was sweet revenge after being destroyed 6-3 when the sides met in October.

Ten Hag's men have now lost just once in 19 games since in a stunning turnaround in the Dutch coach's first season in charge.
