United and City went in at half-time goalless despite Erik ten Hag&aposs men having the better of the chances. The best opportunity arguably fell to Bruno Fernandes but he dragged his shot wide of the target.
The Reds would rue that missed chance on the hour mark when substitute Jack Grealish headed home from close range to give his team the lead. United were level 18 minutes later when a through ball from Casemiro found Fernandes on the edge of the box to convert expertly.
Initially, the linesman&aposs flag was raised adjudging that Marcus Rashford was in an offside position but a VAR check overruled the on-field decision and gave United a route towards victory. City, still angered by the decision, were caught cold just four minutes later as an Alejandro Garnacho cross was turned in by Rashford for the winner.
Wild scenes erupted inside Old Trafford as the Reds moved to within a point of their neighbours. Before the comeback was underway, United supporters were on their feet after an intricate piece of play from their right-back and holding midfielder.
Under strong pressure from Kevin De Bruyne and Erling Haaland, Casemiro did brilliantly to hold off both men and move the ball forward. Wan-Bissaka then did one better sending Rodri sprawling as he evaded the challenge and kept hold of possession.
Post-match, Reds supporters were full of a praise for the United duo particularly Wan-Bissaka who has enjoyed somewhat of a resurgence in recent weeks. Here is how some fans reacted on Reddit.
stevozz: “Here in Spain the commentator called him Wan Bissakinho after this.”
Alpha2669: “Aaron Wan-Bissaka unleashing his inner Messi was not on my bingo card but I am glad it happened.”
OrdinaryOrder: “Wrong title mate, this is clearly Casemiro and Ronaldinho.”
TheRedDevil10: “I genuinely think this was the moment that brought us back into the game. We were falling into City&aposs numbing trap after they go 1-0 up but this sequence brought the crowd back into it.”
