Marcus Rashford is central when Manchester's derby rides around on Sunday and has good memories of his heroic acts since 2016.
In the famous competition two years ago, a relatively unknown Rashford became the hero in the lead after he scored the decisive winning goal and became part of the derby history for the club.
With the fitness from striker Romelu Lukaku uncertain prior to Sunday's confrontation, Rashford could take the lead as United-look and make up for the frontrunners of the city.

After having scored the only goal in the game during the 2016 game to give United a priceless win at the Etihad, Rashford became the youngest scorer ever in the history of the derby.
Mancunian Rashford thought about the game prior to Sunday's meeting and admitted that this was the best moment in his early career.
& # 39; For me personally, winning the winner was the greatest feeling in my career & # 39 ;, said the 21-year-old to United & # 39; s official website.
The side of Pep Guardiola is currently at the top of the Premier League and has a lead of nine points on United
& # 39; It is clear that winning trophies is always your goal, but I would say on a personal note that this was the biggest feeling I had.
"Derby's are always tough games, but I think these are the games you always learn the most. There may be games where you win 3-0 or 4-0 and everyone is happy, but what did you learn from the game itself? & # 39;
The win for United in the backyard of their neighbors would bring them closer to the coveted top four, level 23 points with Arsenal placed fifth.

We obviously want to win every game, but we had a rather difficult start at the start of the season.
& # 39; But now we have some good results in the last few races and we just have to keep working hard every day and play game for game. & # 39;
