Marcus Rashford explains the role that he played in the controversial Manchester United equaliser vs Man City
Manchester United defeated Manchester City on Saturday, partly due to the disputed equalizer scored by Bruno Fernandes.
Marcus Rashford believes Manchester United’s equalizer against Manchester City was correct and doesn’t understand ‘why it wouldn’t stand.’
On Saturday, United defeated their rivals, coming from behind to win 2-1 at Old Trafford. However, there was some debate about Bruno Fernandes’ equalizing goal.
Rashford was in an offside position when a pass was made his way, and despite visibly chasing the ball, drawing defenders towards him, and preparing to fire, he didn’t touch it and instead passed it to Fernandes to shoot

Marcus Rashford explains the role that he played in the controversial Manchester United equaliser vs Man City City were apoplectic but despite their complaints referee Stuart Attwell gave the goal after consulting with his assistant. Rashford spoke about the role he played in the goal and explained why he thinks there was no question about it being given. He told MUTV: “I just stopped. Obviously, if I thought I was onside then I can go on take the ball towards goal. But I realised I’d probably gone a little bit early and I just slowed down completely, I don’t think I was in the line or blocking any of their defenders so I didn’t know why it wouldn’t stand. “If I was maybe blocking one of the defenders coming back in or something like that I could understand it but I didn’t. I just stopped running forward basically. So I think the goal should have stood and I’m pleased that it did stand.”
Rashford did admit, however, that he thought City were the better team that day, but United persevered brilliantly and turned the game on its head.
“It’s a huge game,” he explained. “Winning this game was critical for us. One, it maintains the momentum, and two, it is a major game for the supporters. It will be extremely beneficial to us. We have clearly improved since our last meeting with them. So today’s win validates that, and hopefully we can keep going as a team, which is what we did today.
“I believe they outplayed us. They were far more accurate. But we stuck together and suffered together. out there on the field, and we did it as a team, and we won in the end.”
