As we’ve already seen drama in the first Premier League derby match between Newcastle United and Sunderland, the Manchester derby is producing something extremely similar as both Manchester City and Manchester United look to pick up some form in order to claim that top four place and the chance to play Champions League football next season.
With the likes of City winger Jesus Navas and centre midfield powerhouse Yaya Toure going close in the first half for the hosts, it was United’s 18 year old teen sensation Marcus Rashford is currently grabbing the headlines.
Marcus Rashford is a big game baller. Outstanding from such a young man.

The academy graduate, who has already been involved in three of Manchester United’s last four Premier League goals, managed to add to that in the 16th minute at the Etihad stadium by beating the hopeless Martin Demichelis with ease and finishing like a seasoned Premier League striker past Joe Hart to give United a valuable lead.
That's a sparkling bit of play from Marcus Rashford.
