Despite going behind after just six minutes, Ralf Rangnick’s Manchester United have dragged themselves level against rivals Manchester City.
The Red Devils came into Sunday’s blockbuster Premier League encounter as the game’s overwhelming underdogs and following Cristiano Ronaldo’s exclusion through injury, the Citizens saw their chances of winning heavily boosted.
However, although the game’s early scoreline suggested the home side were the team on top, Rangnick’s Red Devils have undoubtedly been the better team during the first half.
Winger Jadon Sancho, who used to play for City’s youth academy, found himself with a golden opportunity to score and the young England international did not disappoint.
