Manchester United Pull off Incredible Comeback to Stun Rivals Manchester City.

In an exciting Manchester derby, Manchester United completed an incredible 2-1 comeback win over their rivals Manchester City at Old Trafford. This result has dented City’s Premier League title challenge, and could potentially be a launchpad for United’s challenge. Jack Grealish gave the visitors the lead after coming off the bench (60), but two late goals from Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford in the 78th and 82nd minute respectively, turned the game on its head.

The goal from Rashford was especially significant, as it was his ninth goal in a row at Old Trafford, and it was eventually after a VAR check cleared him of being offside in the build-up. 

The win was a huge boost for Erik ten Hag’s side, as they had been humbled 6-3 by the same opponents in October. United now moves up to third in the table, just a point behind City, and six points off leaders Arsenal, ahead of the North London derby on Sunday. On the other hand, City has dropped four points from their last four games since the World Cup restart, and their match against Tottenham on Thursday looks increasingly important.

It was Pep Guardiola’s 500th top-flight game as a manager. It is yet another blow for him and his team, following their Carabao Cup elimination at Southampton just days ago. It was a thrilling derby, and Manchester United can be proud of their performance, having pulled off an incredible comeback to stun their rivals and gain vital points in the hunt for the Premier League title.
