Anthony Martial fired the Red Devils ahead in the first half with a shot that City’s goalkeeper should probably have kept out at his near post.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, beaten at home by City in their past three league meetings and the EFL Cup semi-final first leg, claimed a top-flight double over their city rivals for the first time since 2009-10 to leave the champions’ title defence hanging by a thread.

Pep Guardiola’s first league loss at Old Trafford brought an end to City’s five-game winning run in all competitions, as United boosted their hopes of qualifying for next season’s Champions League.
