Man Utd brutally troll Man City over Marcus Rashford's involvement in controversial equaliser
| Last updated
Manchester United's official TikTok account has trolled Manchester City over Marcus Rashford's involvement in their controversial equaliser.
United came from behind to beat the reigning Premier League champions 2-1 at a packed-out Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.
City went 1-0 up through substitute Jack Grealish, who headed a delightful Kevin De Bruyne cross into an empty United net.
The home side got back in it with 12 minutes to go, thanks to some clever thinking from Rashford.
He was in an offside position as Casemiro played a pass forward, but Bruno Fernandes wasn't. Rashford decided to leave the ball for Fernandes, who slotted past Ederson to level the scores.
City players were furious with the decision to let the goal stand, protesting to referee Stuart Attwell and the fourth officials. Four minutes later, Rashford grabbed the winner after some lovely work from Alejandro Garnacho out wide.
Naturally, the Red Devils' victory has been overshadowed by the debate surrounding the offside. United don't seem to mind.
They posted a video of the equaliser, focused on Rashford, with MC Hammer's 'Can't Touch This' dubbed over the top.
Victory for United moves them one point behind City and in contention for the Premier League title, against all the odds. Erik ten Hag's side are unbeaten since returning from the World Cup, collecting 12 points from 12.
They're still in the running for four competitions, something Ten Hag will be delighted with as the club search for their first trophy in six years.
City, meanwhile, are going through one of their trickiest patches under Guardiola. They looked off the pace against United, even if they feel aggrieved by the equaliser.
Akanji went one step further in his post-match interview, labelling the decision a 'joke'.
He said: "The first goal is a joke that it’s allowed. Rashford is clearly offside. I understand he doesn’t touch the ball, but he runs for 30 metres chasing it and then he stops because Bruno is coming in behind him.
"The referee has to at least look at the situation. Probably the pressure got to him in the stadium, that’s why he decided to let it go."
