In the first half, Marcus Rashford scored the opener with a brilliant strike from outside the box. Andre Onana launches a long kick to Bruno Fernandes. The Portuguese leaves the ball to Rashford and with no hesitation, the English striker fires a 25 yard strike that cannons off the crossbar and into the net to give Man United the lead. It was a screamer that left Man United fans wild.

Man City tried to score the equalizer before halftime, but they struggled to get past Onana, who made crucial saves. Erling Haaland missed a sitter before halftime, and he sent the ball over with his foot in front of the empty net.

Man City kept insisting on finding another goal to win the game. That goal would arrive in the 80th minute as Foden scored his second of the game.

Foden started the move as he combined with De Bruyne and Julian Alvarez to then finish in the box with a strike into the bottom right corner. It wasn't done there after as Amrabat is disposed easily by Rodri near the box. Rodri passes the ball to Haaland and he slots the ball into the bottom left corner in the 91st minute.
