Man City vs Man Utd LIVE!

Phil Foden scored twice in the second half as title-chasing Manchester City came from behind to claim a crucial 3-1 win over rivals Manchester United.

The champions were stunned by a brilliant strike from Marcus Rashford after just eight minutes but were otherwise the dominant force in a keenly-fought Premier League clash at the Etihad Stadium.

Their pressure eventually paid off as Foden levelled with a long-range effort in the 56th minute and then put his side ahead 10 minutes from time. Erling Haaland put the result beyond doubt in stoppage time.

Victory in the Manchester derby took City one point behind leaders Liverpool ahead of the two sides' eagerly-anticipated meeting at Anfield next weekend.

United meanwhile aren’t in action in midweek before hosting Everton on Saturday lunchtime.

Phil Foden reacts to Man City victory

17:54 , Marc Mayo

“That’s my aim, to turn up in the big games. In this season I’m proving that, just need to keep working hand and putting in performances.

“I understand what it means for the fans, a derby at the Etihad, it means everything for me. To score is even better but the win is most important.”

Derby delight

17:47 , Marc Mayo

Man City have now won four of their five Manchester derbies against Erik ten Hag.

Will they see him again next year..?

Watch Erling Haaland make it 3-1

17:32 , Marc Mayo

He just has to score, doesn’t he?

Man City 3-1 Man Utd | Full time!

17:29 , Marc Mayo

The derby day bragging rights stay with the blue half of Manchester!

Man City 3-1 Man Utd | 90+6 mins

17:26 , Marc Mayo

Phil Foden on the deck after a foul by Antony. No card for the Brazilian.

He’ll depart at this point for Oscar Bobb. Cue the standing ovation!

Man City 3-1 Man Utd | 90+4 mins

17:24 , Marc Mayo

The Etihad serenades their visitors in a chant that, well, let’s say is about them being not very good. “You’re ******* ****” is probably the best way to type it out...

GGGGOOOAALLL!!! Man City 3-1 Man Utd | Haaland, 90+2'

17:21 , Marc Mayo


He’s been basically rubbish all game and yet the big Norwegian still adds his name to the scoresheet.

Sofyan Amrabat tamely loses the ball 20 yards from his own goal and, in a flash, Haaland is slipped in to roll home City’s third goal!

Man City 2-1 Man Utd | 90 mins

17:20 , Marc Mayo

We will have EIGHT minutes of stoppage time in the Manchester derby.

Man City 2-1 Man Utd | 89 mins

17:19 , Marc Mayo

Antony races away to gain valuable yards down the right flank but he gets held up before Phil Foden arrives to deliver a challenge - and win City the throw-in.

The 23-year-old might just win Man of the Match today..!

Man City 2-1 Man Utd | 87 mins

17:17 , Marc Mayo

Vital foot in by Raphael Varane to prevent Kevin De Bruyne’s cross from reaching a City forward.

Man City 2-1 Man Utd | 85 mins

17:15 , Marc Mayo

Five minutes left for United to find a goal. Not a huge amount of momentum behind them, it’s been a bit scrappy since the goal and City continue to dominate the ball.

Watch Phil Foden put Man City in front

17:13 , Marc Mayo

Should Andre Onana have done better?

Man City 2-1 Man Utd | 82 mins

17:12 , Marc Mayo

Sofyan Amrabat and Omari Forson on for Alejandro Garnacho and Kobbie Mainoo.

United have barely thrown a punch all half, can they rally themselves for a late goal?

GGGGOOOOOAAALLLLL!!!! Man City 2-1 Man Utd | Foden, 80'

17:09 , Marc Mayo


Slick stuff from City down the left as Foden escapes Casemiro with a one-two, via Julian Alvarez which draws out Raphael Varane.

It’s not a clean strike but Andre Onana can’t keep it out and City lead!

Man City 1-1 Man Utd | 79 mins

17:08 , Marc Mayo

Ederson launches off his line to clean out Alejandro Garnacho, and it looks like he wins the ball in the process.

No doubt about it, the replays show. Goal kick, too.

Man City 1-1 Man Utd | 77 mins

17:07 , Marc Mayo

Victor Lindelof has been stuck tight to Erling Haaland since moving centrally and he clears a Nathan Ake cross well.

United fail to generate a counter as a result though, but City’s move ends with a foul on Scott McTominay.

Man City 1-1 Man Utd | 74 mins

17:04 , Marc Mayo

Antony on for Marcus Rashford.

It was an absolute beauty of a goal from the United forward after eight minutes. He’s not done a huge amount else, though.

Man City 1-1 Man Utd | 71 mins

17:01 , Marc Mayo

Kevin De Bruyne hits a shot into the wall.

Diogo Dalot has moved to left-back to mark Phil Foden for United, with Willy Kwambala on the right flank and Victor Lindelof in the middle.

Kyle Walker next to try his luck from range... straight down the keeper’s throat.

Man City 1-1 Man Utd | 68 mins

16:58 , Marc Mayo

Erling Haaland hits the deck after skinning Raphael Varane 20 yards from goal.

Booking for the Frenchman - and an enticing spot for City.

Willy Kwambala, the teenage defender, replaces Jonny Evans before the free-kick.

Man City 1-1 Man Utd | 66 mins

16:56 , Marc Mayo

City fans had been on top of Andre Onana’s slight delays, or timewasting if you will, over his kicks.

Now they really aren’t happy with him as he plays on after a minute or so of treatment. United can expect that back, with change, in injury time.

Man City 1-1 Man Utd | 65 mins

16:54 , Marc Mayo

Lovely cross to the far post meets Bernardo Silva, who diverts a header towards Erling Haaland but it’s just too high for the Norwegian to reach and try to make amends for his earlier miss.

A fresh delay coming up as Andre Onana dives on a loose pass moments later and claims he has an injury.

Cramp? For a keeper after 65 minutes... really? Or is he properly hurt?

Man City 1-1 Man Utd | 62 mins

16:52 , Marc Mayo

City’s 12th corner of the afternoon fails to yield a chance, they’ve really struggled to produce from set plays.

But their tails are well and truly up. United are pinned in against a team looking far more energetic than before Phil Foden’s wonder-strike.

Man City 1-1 Man Utd | 59 mins

16:49 , Marc Mayo

A delay after a blue flare lands in Andre Onana’s box.

Pep Guardiola brings Julian Alvarez on for Jeremy Doku.

Watch Phil Foden level the Manchester derby

16:48 , Marc Mayo

Top. Bins.

GGGGOOOOAAALLLL!!!! Man City 1-1 Man Utd | Foden, 56'

16:45 , Marc Mayo


What Marcus Rashford can do, he can just as well. A dart inwards from the right flank leads to a sizzling shot straight into the top corner!

United want a foul in the build-up, on Rashford, but there’s nothing it and Erik ten Hag is booked for his protests.

Man City 0-1 Man Utd | 55 mins

16:45 , Marc Mayo

The hosts back on the ball but there’s so little urgency about their game, with the trademark sudden zip-zip-zip towards a big chance also absent.

A plain cross into the box by Nathan Ake goes unmet.

Man City 0-1 Man Utd | 53 mins

16:43 , Marc Mayo

Very little pressure on the ball as United hold a rare moment of possession. All too easy.

Man City 0-1 Man Utd | 50 mins

16:40 , Marc Mayo

Dangerous from City as Jeremy Doku is played in by Bernardo Silva down the left after good hold-up play by Erling Haaland.

It deflects up off a defender and Andre Onana does well to palm it away, as an attacker lurked at the far post.

Man City 0-1 Man Utd | 47 mins

16:37 , Marc Mayo

Quiet start to proceedings from the home players and fans.

United still in that 4-2-2-2 formation off the ball with two midfield chasers and the two strikers peeling wide. On the ball it’s been more of a 4-3-1-2 with Bruno Fernandes in the hole.

You have to say, Erik ten Hag’s plan has worked so far.

Man City 0-1 Man Utd | Kick-off!

16:35 , Marc Mayo

No changes at the break, who will take the derby bragging rights?

Second-half underway!

Not good enough from Man City


It's not been great for City. Plenty of territory, possession and corners... but no goals.

Andre Onana has made a couple of impressive saves but Pep Guardiola will get stuck into his players at the break to demand some more of his trademark magic to unlock this stout defence.

United lead the derby


Marcus Rashford's eighth-minute stunner stands to count as one of the great Manchester derby goals.

However, it will only really count for something if they take a result.

So far so good in that regard, they've defended well and had a little bit of luck with as that Erling Haaland miss showed. They could do with having a bit more threat on the counter, though.

Can they really win this 1-0?

Watch Erling Haaland's stunning miss

16:23 , Marc Mayo

It takes a lot to produce that noise from your own fans. Pure, unbridled anguish.

Man City 0-1 Man Utd | Half time!

16:19 , Marc Mayo

The Etihad is stunned, almost in equal measure by Marcus Rashford’s early stunner to put United ahead and Erling Haaland’s dreadful miss which should have levelled the derby for City.

Man City 0-1 Man Utd | 45 mins

16:16 , Marc Mayo


Erling Haaland arrives in the six-yard box unmarked, goal gaping... and places his shot over!

Miss of the season contender, right there.

Three added minutes.

Man City 0-1 Man Utd | 44 mins

16:16 , Marc Mayo

Kobbie Mainoo down in the City box after catching a rocket Phil Foden shot straight in the noggin. A few boos from the home fans as he collects himself and returns to his feet.

Man City 0-1 Man Utd | 42 mins

16:13 , Marc Mayo

Kyle Walker nods a header towards United’s penalty spot but Jeremy Doku is a yard away from latching onto it.

But no matter, Kevin De Bruyne is next to it... and he spoons a volley way, way off target.

Man City 0-1 Man Utd | 40 mins

16:11 , Marc Mayo

Andre Onana has had a good half, he leaps into his six-yard box to claim a Phil Foden cross with authority. It was his long kick which started United’s move for the goal, too.

Man City 0-1 Man Utd | 37 mins

16:08 , Marc Mayo

It’s all been a bit quiet at the Etihad in the past few minutes.

United are formed up deep, with the ball in front of them and not concerned at all by City’s crosses from wide.

Pep Guardiola’s men need to be a bit more inventive and take some risks to break them down.

Man City 0-1 Man Utd | 34 mins

16:04 , Marc Mayo


Andre Onana gets down low to palm away a Rodri volley that was bouncing towards the bottom corner.

Man City 0-1 Man Utd | 33 mins

16:04 , Marc Mayo

First moment for Erling Haaland to impact the derby, as a ball pops up his way in the box off Casemiro.

An improvised header, which is actually a tick behind him, is diverted over.

Not seen much of the Norwegian, today.

Man City 0-1 Man Utd | 31 mins

16:02 , Marc Mayo

We’ll have to wait and see if this is a proper issue for Marcus Rashford, after he signals to the bench but looks ready to play on. Not sure when he picked up whatever issue he has.

Man City 0-1 Man Utd | 30 mins

16:01 , Marc Mayo

Jeremy Doku skews a shot off target on the stretch after some neat play in the United box.

Bigger problems for United, though. Marcus Rashford has an injury...

Man City 0-1 Man Utd | 26 mins

15:57 , Marc Mayo

VAR check after some handball shouts behind the goal for Diogo Dalot’s arm connecting with a cross from City’s left.

It’s tight to his body though so we play on, with the corner punched away.

That’s seven corners now for City and precisely zero threat produced from them.

In fact, now it’s eight as Rodri’s shot is blocked wide. Hoofed clear.

Man City 0-1 Man Utd | 24 mins

15:55 , Marc Mayo

Another half chance for Marcus Rashford as a cross drops past Scott McTominay to reach his far-post run. But a scraggly air-kick sees the ball beat him too.

Man City 0-1 Man Utd | 22 mins

15:52 , Marc Mayo

City fans furiously demand a corner after Jeremy Doku’s cross hits Diogo Dalot and is grabbed on the line by Andre Onana.

It’s simply not dropping the home team’s way so far. But they have enjoyed 65 per cent of possession, so the pressure won’t relent.

Man City 0-1 Man Utd | 19 mins

15:50 , Marc Mayo


Phil Foden is sent goalwards by Kevin De Bruyne and he opts to go on his weaker right foot as defenders cover, and Andre Onana turns his low shot wide.

Man City 0-1 Man Utd | 17 mins

15:48 , Marc Mayo

Big chance for Marcus Rashford to race at goal after a smart Bruno Fernandes pass breaks his way towards an empty City half.

But his touch lets him down and Kyle Walker, on his tail, mops up.

Man City 0-1 Man Utd | 15 mins

15:46 , Marc Mayo

Phil Foden forces Andre Onana into a save with his legs, after hitting the target from a difficult angle as he ran away from goal.

The subsequent corner again comes to nothing for City.

Man City 0-1 Man Utd | 13 mins

15:44 , Marc Mayo

A roar is response from the home fans after Kyle Walker and Phil Foden combine to win a corner.

Hacked out for a second attempt by Bruno Fernandes, which is cleared by the same player at the near post.

Man City 0-1 Man Utd | 11 mins

15:43 , Marc Mayo

The Etihad is stunned.

Man City are too, Bruno Fernandes forces a corner in front of the away end where all the noise is coming from right now.

Watch Marcus Rashford's goal

15:41 , Marc Mayo

He did tell you, doubt him at your own risk!

GGGGOOOOAAALLL!!!! Man City 0-1 Man Utd | Rashford, 8'

15:38 , Marc Mayo


Wow. Wow. Wow.

Marcus Rashford, take a bow. What a hit from range by the striker, who takes aim from 25 yards and buries it via the underside of the bar.

Normally a calm customer in his celebrations, he roars at the away fans as he points to his head in trademark fashion.

Man City 0-0 Man Utd | 6 mins

15:37 , Marc Mayo

First chance for Alejandro Garnacho to race down the right wing but his cross pops up kindly for Ederson.

Man City 0-0 Man Utd | 4 mins

15:35 , Marc Mayo

Lovely tackle by Casemiro in the box pokes the ball off of John Stones, after a dart into the box.

City want a penalty but nothing doing... and VAR agrees.

Bruno Fernandes is back on his feet after taking a blow from something innocuous in the build-up. That noise you can hear is City’s TikTok-er busily scrawling down notes.

Man City 0-0 Man Utd | 2 mins

15:33 , Marc Mayo

First shot of the day via Phil Foden, who hits it from range after a short corner. Deflected wide by Diogo Dalot’s good header.

The next set play is cleared.

Man City 0-0 Man Utd | 1 min

15:32 , Marc Mayo

Alejandro Garnacho on the right and Marcus Rashford on the left as United form up in a 4-2-2-2 perhaps early on? Bruno Fernandes and Scott McTominay the more advanced midfielders.

City win an early corner.

Man City vs Man Utd | Kick-off!

15:30 , Marc Mayo

Three ‘Champions’ banners held up by the City fans as they remind the visitors of their own treble feat.

A hearty boo of the Premier League anthem from the hosts too, before both sets of supporters launch into song to build a great atmosphere.

The Manchester derby is underway!

Here come the players!

15:27 , Marc Mayo

Kevin De Bruyne and Bruno Fernandes lead out the two teams behind today’s derby referee, Andy Madley.

Almost every seat is occupied in the Etihad Stadium as the players prepare to step out.

Five minutes until we get underway...

Manager's Manchester derby records

15:22 , Marc Mayo

Erik ten Hag has only won one of his four Manchester derbies, with City winning 6-3 in this game last season.

Pep Guardiola has won 14 of his games against United - only Arsenal and Burnley have lost more to the Spaniard.

That record includes two Champions League final wins over United as Barcelona boss and a quarter-final success in charge of Bayern Munich.

Man Utd hungry for three points

15:19 , Marc Mayo

Not sure how far we can push that “eat or be eaten” line by Erik ten Hag - but he had said in midweek that he could “smell” the motivation on his squad.

Meanwhile, the dressing room is rumbling in the belly of the Etihad as the United players prepare to dine out at an all-you-can-eat derby buffet. On the menu: Manchester City!


Erik ten Hag demands 'intimidating' performance

15:15 , Marc Mayo

“As a team, and every single player, has to show passion, desire, determination... intimidation if necessary.

“We have to show how hungry we are. It’s eat or be eaten, and we want to eat.”

Pep Guardiola looks ahead to the derby

15:13 , Marc Mayo

“Very crucial moment, against an opponent we know the strengths they have.

“We try to figure out their plan as soon as possible, to put the right dose of energy to try to perform.

“We have to stick with our ideas, who we are and just play a football game.

“We won’t be top tonight but we are here because everyone’s made a contribution. When [Erling Haaland and Kevin De Bruyne] perform at the highest level is an incredible weapon for us.

“Jeremy [Doku] has been amazing, especially before his injury, step by step he’s coming back and with Jack’s injury and we need his quality in the final third.”

Full time at Turf Moor


In the Premier League’s early kick-off, Bournemouth have beaten Burnley 2-0.

That gives the Cherries a buffer in 13th place while Burnley, managed by City legend Vincent Kompany, are 11 points off safety...

Throwback: Sergio Aguero nets in the derby


Sergio Aguero absolutely dominated this game.

His record reads eight goals in 13 league games, seven of which ended as wins.

Marcus Rashford at a crossroads in his career


The beginning of the Sir Jim Ratcliffe era has prompted a period of introspection as Manchester United ponder which direction to go in next — and this feels a similarly apt time for Marcus Rashford to contemplate his own future.

Rashford's career, it must be said, is at a crossroads.

Throwback: Paul Scholes stuns the Etihad

14:54 , Marc Mayo

No doubt one of the great goals in this fixture, by a player who was on his comeback from retirement at the time.

Gary Neville not hopeful of a United victory

14:50 , Marc Mayo

The Manchester United legend his given his take on the game as kick-off approaches.

“I’ve not spoken to a United fan in the last few days that believes we can come here and win - or even draw,” he tells Sky Sports.

“That’s the problem at this moment in time. But the thing today is shock us, do something that’s not expected.

“United are on a decent run in the last few weeks, until the Fulham game where they fell apart a bit. But it’s those levels and inconsistencies where, if you give a team like City those chances, they’re going to bury you.

“So I’m a little bit worried. The fear is we’ll be watching from behind the sofa, fingers crossed we don’t get beat by four, five, six...”


Rasmus Hojlund disappointment

14:43 , Marc Mayo

The brief surge of hope for Manchester United fans that Rasmus Hojlund would be fit, having arrived on the team bus earlier, has been dismissed.

Instead, the bench looks pretty thin for the visitors.

Amad Diallo, Antony and Christian Eriksen are their only real options to change the game if they fall behind.

Otherwise it’s Sofyan Amrabat and teenagers Willy Kambwala, Omari Forson, full-back Habeeb Ogunneye and 20-year-old defensive midfielder Toby Collyer.

Jonny Evans starts for Man Utd

14:38 , Marc Mayo

The veteran centre-back will face down Erling Haaland alongside Raphael Varane, after being preferred over Sofyan Amrabat in defence.

That should see Victor Lindelof play left-back, while Scott McTominay will move up the field as Kobbie Mainoo returns in a 4-2-3-1.

Kevin De Bruyne starts for Man City

14:37 , Marc Mayo

For the second game in a week, Kevin De Bruyne has made the Man City starting line-up.

Matheus Nunes and Mateo Kovacic miss out, as does Julian Alvarez. Jack Grealish is injured.

Josko Gvardiol is also fit to make the squad after a recent injury, he makes the bench.

Ruben Dias is preferred to start as Manuel Akanji is dropped.

How Man Utd line up

14:34 , Marc Mayo

Manchester United XI: Onana; Dalot, Varane, Evans, Lindelof; Mainoo, Casemiro; Fernandes, McTominay, Garnacho; Rashford

Subs: Bayindir, Kambwala, Ogunneye, Amrabat, Collyer, Eriksen, Amad, Antony, Forson

Man City team news is in!

Man City XI: Ederson; Walker, Stones, Dias, Ake; Rodri, De Bruyne; Silva, Foden, Doku; Haaland

Subs: Ortega, Kovacic, Alvarez, Gomez, Gvardiol, Akanji, Nunes, Bobb, Lewis

Elsewhere in the Premier League

14:26 , Marc Mayo

Bournemouth are a goal up at Burnley in the early kick-off, with the second half just underway.

Not a hugely impactful game for either of the Manchester clubs, but a nice Justin Kluivert goal to show you nonetheless.

Will Rasmus Hojlund play for Man Utd?

14:21 , Marc Mayo

Erik ten Hag had said he didn’t expect anyone back for today’s team that wasn’t already fit.

With Rasmus Hojlund and Lisandro Martinez hopping off the team bus, some reports say they are simply here for moral support amid their injuries.

We’ll find out in about ten minutes’ time when the teams are released...

Ten Hag: Man Utd can learn from Man City but we must do things our own way

13:57 , Giuseppe Muro

Manchester United can learn from Manchester City’s success but will not try to copy their methods, according to manager Erik Ten Hag.

United head to the Etihad Stadium on Sunday for the Manchester derby once again a long way adrift of their neighbours in the Premier League.

A restructuring of United’s football hierarchy is under way following the investment made by Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s Ineos Group, with their first move to bring in Omar Berrada from City as chief executive.

Ten Hag said: “I think you can always learn from opponents who are successful and you have to do it if you want to go to high levels but, at the same time, we have to do it in a United way.

“This is a different club with a different environment, with a different DNA. But you pick up things that can be successful and you integrate it in your own model.”

Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s admiration of City ‘a complete honour’ says Guardiola

13:51 , Giuseppe Muro

Pep Guardiola has thanked Sir Jim Ratcliffe for ‘helping him do his job’ by stating his admiration for Manchester City.

New Manchester United co-owner Ratcliffe recently spoke of his ambition to knock neighbours City, and another of their rivals in Liverpool, “off their perch”.

Yet in doing so he conceded United had fallen well behind both of those clubs and admitted much could be learned from their success.

He even went as far as to say City’s 4-0 demolition of Real Madrid in last season’s Champions League semi-finals was “the best quality of football I’ve ever seen”.

Guardiola says such compliments are a source of pride and feed his continuing desire for success.

The City manager said: “I just say thank you so much.

“Sometimes they are more than the titles, the compliments of the personalities that make this country, like Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s comments. It is a complete honour for us.

“One can produce emotions and feelings for the players and our rivals. That helps to do our job. Thank you so much on behalf of all of us.

“But I am sure tomorrow they will try, one way or another, to inoculate the Man Utd players with the best performance to try to beat us.”

How things stand

13:44 , Giuseppe Muro

A reminder that Manchester City can move back within a point of Premier League leaders Liverpool with a win today.

Jurgen Klopp’s side won 1-0 at Nottingham Forest yesterday after a 99th-minute winner from Darwin Nunez.

Arsenal, who sit one point behind City in third, are away at Sheffield United on Monday night.

Meanwhile, Manchester United need a positive result in the race for the top four after wins for Aston Villa and Tottenham yesterday.

United will kick-off 11 points behind Villa and six behind Spurs.

Man City to win, 3-1.

Man Utd team news

13:16 , Giuseppe Muro

Manchester United will be without Rasmus Hojlund and Erik ten Hag has a major defensive selection dilemma.

The Manchester United manager has admitted he has a “puzzle” to solve over the make-up of his back-four, with Harry Maguire still out injured.

Ten Hag has been weighing up whether to stick with Sofyan Amrabat at left-back or bring in Jonny Evans alongside Raphael Varane at centre-half and move Victor Lindelof to left-back.

Injuries to Maguire, Lisandro Martinez, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Tyrell Malacia have left United with a defensive shortage ahead of their trip to the Etihad Stadium.

Amrabat started at left-back in Wednesday’s 1-0 FA Cup win at Nottingham Forest but adopted more of a midfield role and helped United dictate the latter part of the game.

Marcus Rashford is set to lead the line after he hit back at criticism over his lifestyle and commitment to United.

Man City team news

13:10 , Giuseppe Muro

Rodri, Phil Foden, Ruben Dias will all return to the Manchester City team.

The trio sat Tuesday’s 6-2 FA Cup win against Luton but will be recalled alongside Ederson.

Jack Grealish has been ruled out with a groin injury, while Kyle Walker’s recovery pace means he is likely to get the nod over Manuel Akanji to face Marcus Rashford.

Erling Haaland will be out to pile more misery on United after his five goals at Kenilworth Road.

Josko Gvardiol is closing in on a return from his ankle injury but Pep Guardiola did not give an update on his fitness in his pre-match press conference on Friday.
