Phil Foden turned the Manchester derby around almost singlehandedly.

The Englishman got Manchester City back into Sunday's match with a spectacular left-footed strike that slipped through a narrow window in Manchester United's increasingly strained defense.

City probed for an opening for nearly an hour after conceding from Marcus Rashford's screamer inside 10 minutes. The breakthrough finally came when Foden took on Victor Lindelof and picked out the left corner to tie the game at 1-1.

Not content with just an equalizer, Foden delivered the eventual winning goal in the 80th minute, racing into the penalty area and combining with Julian Alvarez before firing a shot into the bottom corner.
