Manchester United fans go wild after Marcus Rashford winner vs Man City.

Manchester United's supporters lauded Marcus Rashford after he continued his sensational run of form to score the winner in the Reds' 2-1 Manchester derby victory over City at Old Trafford on Saturday lunchtime.United had their tails up after Fernandes' leveller and sniffed blood. Garnacho showed tremendous skill and vision to pick out Rashford in the middle, leaving him with the relatively simple task of poking the ball home.Man United are now in the Premier League title race after fighting back from a goal down against City to move within six points of leaders Arsenal -- who they play a week on Sunday at the Emirates.

In one of the most dramatic Manchester derbies in recent times, United's failure to capitalise on a number of first-half chances looked to have cost them dearly when substitute Grealish headed City into the lead from a Kevin De Bruyne cross on 60 minutes.

But a controversial equaliser by Fernandes on 78 minutes put United back in the game and sparked anger within the City ranks. With Rashford clearly offside when the ball was played down the middle, the United forward charged through but left the ball for Fernandes to score from 20 yards and the offside flag was raised. But referee Stuart Attwell overruled his assistant because Rashford, while appearing to interfere with play next to his teammate, did not actually touch the ball.
