Man United exhibits resilience as they thrash City 2:1 at home

Marcus Rashford kept up his stunning scoring streak to complete an incredible 2-1 comeback win for Manchester United over rivals Manchester City at Old Trafford, denting their neighbors’ Premier League title challenge and perhaps launching one of their own.

City looked set to complete back-to-back derby doubles over United when Jack Grealish stepped off the bench to head the visitors in front (60).

But after a VAR check cleared Rashford from being offside in the build-up to Bruno Fernandes’ equalizer (78) – to the rage of City’s players – the England man turned in Alejandro Garnacho’s cross four minutes later to score for a ninth time in a row on his home ground.

The velocity is certainly with the red half of Manchester now. United have won nine on the spin in all competitions, 12 in a row at home, and can close in on Arsenal when they go to the Emirates next weekend, after a trip to Crystal Palace on Wednesday. For the supporters who stayed behind to celebrate, they feel something special is happening under Ten Hag.
