Ranked: Our 10 best Old Trafford derby goals

Down the years, meetings with our crosstown rivals at the Theatre of Dreams have produced an array of memorable strikes etched into the fixture’s recent history.

Ahead of the latest instalment in M16 on Saturday, here’s our top 10 goals against the Blues on home soil – these are bound to bring back some fond memories…

10 – ANTHONY MARTIAL (2019/20)

For our first in the countdown, look no further than our last meeting with the Blues at Old Trafford, back in March. An instinctive bit of magic via a quick free-kick from Bruno Fernandes set in the Frenchman who converted on the volley to give United the first-half lead and break the deadlock after a well-contested start to the encounter.

9 – MARCUS RASHFORD (2017/18)

It’s fair to say our no.10 has enjoyed his time in the fixture over the last few years. Having scored on his Manchester derby debut the year before at the Etihad Stadium, Marcus popped up again to register his first derby goal on home soil. An equaliser at the time, it was unfortunately in vain as the visitors edged back ahead in the second 45 before taking all three points back across the city.
