Fifty-five thousand attended as City’s season and Martin Demichelis’s career were buried under a dust cloud left by 18-year-old Marcus Rashford. May they rot together in eternal hell.
Perhaps poking fun at the young Manchester United forward in my match preview was a bad move. The battle between Rashford and Demichelis proved to be horrifically decisive in the 171st Manchester derby that may well decide who finishes in the top four at the end of the season. This complete mismatch saw the 35-year-old Argentine chasing shadows for 60 minutes as Rashford skipped and squirmed beyond his reach like Usain Bolt drenched in Johnson’s baby oil.
