Manchester City vs Manchester United Premier League Match Result March 2024

Manchester City emerged victorious at the Etihad Stadium, maintaining pressure on Premier League leaders Liverpool and securing their sixth win in the last seven Manchester derbies.

Initially, the outcome seemed uncertain as Marcus Rashford opened the scoring within the first 10 minutes with a powerful strike that beat Ederson from 25 yards out, ricocheting off the underside of the crossbar into the net.

Despite United's goalkeeper Andre Onana putting up a strong performance, City intensified their attacks. However, they should have entered halftime level, but Erling Haaland missed a close-range volley over the crossbar.

Phil Foden, seizing the spotlight of the derby, equalized just before the hour mark with a left-footed strike into the far top corner. With 10 minutes remaining, Foden, assisted by Julian Alvarez, coolly slotted past Onana to put City ahead, before Haaland sealed the victory in stoppage time.
