Pep Guardiola’s side almost equalized after the half time break when Rodri has his effort come off the bar before Luke Shaw doubled the lead following an impressive exchange of passes with Rashford before sending the ball past Ederson in the 50th minute.
The win extends Solskjaer’s side away unbeaten run to 22 matches and a chance to redeem their position above Leicester who are just a point behind them in the Premier League table.
