Manchester City 0-1 Manchester United

Marcus Rashford scores for Manchester United

Marcus Rashford has now scored five goals in eight Manchester United appearances

Teenage striker Marcus Rashford scored the winner as Manchester United boosted their top-four hopes with a derby win at Manchester City.

The 18-year-old collected Juan Mata’s pass, beat Martin Demichelis and coolly slotted home in the 15th minute.

Sergio Aguero was denied an equaliser when he struck the post with a near-post header from Yaya Toure’s cross.

United are now one point behind fourth-placed City, who lost Raheem Sterling and Joe Hart to injury.
