Video: Marcus Rashford gives Man Utd lead against Man City after VAR awards penalty

Manchester United have taken a deserved lead against Manchester City at the Etihad.

Pep Guardiola’s side have not been able to handle United’s attacking trio of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Daniel James on the counter-attack.

And United were rewarded with a penalty early in the first-half, after Bernardo Silva felled Marcus Rashford in the box.

The penalty had not been given originally, but a VAR check proved it was a stonewall penalty and Anthony Taylor pointed to the spot.
