Man Utd 2-0 Man City: Red devils claim bragging rights in entertaining derby

Fernandes lifted the ball over two City defenders for Martial to volley home and give United the lead on 30 minutes.

Martial almost added another in the second half, when Ederson made a mess in front of goal, only to recover with a last-ditch tackle.

But United never looked like surrendering their lead, and another mistake from Ederson allowed Scott McTominay to seal the points at the death with a long range strike into the
open net.
