Man united beat Man City 2-1 with Martial & Rashford goals in PL.

Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial first-half goals, Man city league title hopes go deep down.

Manchester United dealt a crushing blow to Manchester City's title hopes with a stunning derby win that leaves the defending champions 14 points behind Premier League leaders Liverpool.

Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial fired United into an early lead and although Nicolas Otamendi's late reply set up a thrilling finale, the visitors held on for arguably the most impressive victory of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's 12-month reign.

Both United goals came in a breathless opening half-hour at Etihad Stadium, where they repeatedly carved open City's creaking back-line to devastating effect.

Man City 14 points away from PL title defeat by Man united, stats, facts.

In English top-flight history, no side has ever gone on to win the title after being as many as 14 points behind the top side at the end of a day's games.

Manchester United are unbeaten in their past five Premier League games (W3 D2), winning consecutive league matches for the first time since March.

This is Pep Guardiola's worst points return after the first 16 matches of a top-flight season in his managerial career (32 pts).

Guardiola has lost two home league games in a single season for only the third time in his managerial career (also 2014-15 with Bayern Munich and 2008-09 with Barcelona).

United's Anthony Martial has been directly involved in 10 goals in his past 13 Premier League starts (6 goals, 4 assists).

Marcus Rashford has scored 13 goals in 21 appearances in all competitions this season - equalling his best goalscoring return for United in a single season (13 goals in 47 apps in 2018-19 and 13 goals in 52 apps in 2017-18).

Rashford has been directly involved in 15 goals in his past 14 games in all competitions for Manchester United and England (13 goals, 2 assists).

United have both taken (8) and scored (4) more penalties in the Premier League this season than any other side.

Man City & Man United's next Match fixtures, date.

Manchester City head for Croatia to play Dinamo Zagreb in their final group fixture in the Champions League on Wednesday (17:55 GMT). They are already through to the last 16 as guaranteed group winners.

United switch their attention to Europe in midweek too, hosting Dutch side AZ Alkmaar (20:00) in the Europa League on Thursday. They are also already through to the knockout stage, but need to avoid defeat in order to finish top of Group L.

Both teams play their next Premier League game on Sunday 15 December. United are at home to Everton (14:00 GMT) while City are away at Arsenal (16:30 GMT).
