A pair of blistering attackers who call Manchester home tried to one-up each other on Sunday, as both Marcus Rashford and Leroy Sane won penalties in their respective matches with blatant flops.

Rashford flung himself to the ground in United's 1-1 draw against Swansea early in the day, while his counterpart Sane appeared to do the same under the slightest attempt at a tackle from Marten de Roon during City's disappointing 2-2 stalemate against Middlesbrough.

So, who did it better (or, in this case, worse)?

Marcus Rashford

Leroy Sane

Rashford commits to his dive earlier, so he gets points there, but Sane's ability to contort his body and send his limbs flying in different directions as he hits the turf certainly gives him the edge.
