Micah Richards hits out at shocking decision in Manchester d

Bruno Fernandes equaliser for Manchester United against Manchester City was shrouded in controversy, with Pep Guardiolas team seeing calls for an offside flag ignored

Former Manchester City defender Micah Richards maintained the officials made a shocking decision to allowBruno Fernandes goal to stand inthe Manchester Derby.

Manchester UnitedforwardMarcus Rashfordwas beyond the last City defender when he looked to chase down a through ball with United trailing by a goal to nil. The England international would have been flagged offside had he touched the ball, but instead he left it for Fernandes - running from deep - to beat visiting goalkeeper Ederson and level the scores.

The decision caused plenty of controversy, mostly around whether Rashford should be considered to have been interfering with play. Former referee Des Roachequestioned the decision to allow the goal to stand, and now Richards has followed suit.

Its a shocking decision, lets be honest, Richards toldMatch of the Day. Me, as a defender, if youre playing up front and you run offside, Im constantly adjusting my position towards where youre going to be.

So Im not worried about anything behind me - Im worried about you. If youre offside, were not bothered. Youre trying to keep a high line, which is an art in defending, so now theyre stopping you from doing the defending.

Host Gary Lineker then raised the subject of whether Rashford was interfering with play despite not touching the ball. Of course he was, the 34-year-old replied.

If I was officiating that game, the goal would not have stood, former SPFL ref Roache said. By the laws of the game, theBruno Fernandesgoal is not offside because the referee has interpreted that Marcus Rashford is not interfering with the ball and stopping a Man City player from claiming the ball.

City boss Pep Guardiola was also frustrated by the decision, which left his side at risk of falling eight points adrift of league leadersArsenalby the end of the weekend. However, the Catalan said his side would not be lodging a complaint.

Rashford was offside and he was distracting our players, the City boss said. Maybe I dont know what the rule is, but I know where we are playing. In this stadium, with this referee, it can happen.

When we conceded the equaliser, it was important we didnt concede another goal so soon. That is something we have to improve. The referee decided not to intervene. Are we going to make a complaint? No. This is Old Trafford. Its like Anfield. You have to play better.

SubstituteJack Grealishhad headed City into the lead before Fernandes levelled things up 12 minutes from time. Moments later it was 2-1 to United, with Rashford putting away an Alejandro Garnacho cross, and the two rivals are now separated by just one point.

Marcus is unstoppable and opponents will get tough with him to try to stop him, United boss Erik ten Hag said. But he knows how to deal with it. He knows that in football, you have to take the pain and sacrifice.
