TWITTER INSIGHT: ‘Manchester is RED’! - Man Utd rejoice after derby triumph

Manchester United had some joy in the weekend's local derby with crosstown rivals Manchester City.

Louis van Gaal's Red Devils defeated City 1-0 at Etihad Stadium on Sunday to move within four points of Manuel Pellegrini's men.

Teenage striker Marcus Rashford scored the only goal of the contest with a lovely finish in the 16th minute which painted the Manc red.

Below are the Twitter reactions of the United players who contributed to the triumph, some who watched on, plus a couple of tributes to young gun Rashford from some past Old Trafford greats.
