Andre Onana pulls off superhuman save to deny Erling Haaland in Manchester derby

Manchester United goalkeeper Andre Onana pulled off an astonishing save to keep his side in the derby against Manchester City.

City travelled to face United at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon, with six points separating the two sides in the Premier League table.

Both sides had chances early in the game but it was City who would take the lead courtesy of their first ever penalty at Old Trafford in the Premier League era.

And it proved to be a controversial one.

Rodri was pulled back in the area by Rasmus Hojlund but referee Paul Tierney waved play on despite the protests of several City players.

But VAR Michael Oliver ordered play to be stopped, with Tierney eventually overturning his initial decision after viewing the pitchside monitor.

Haaland stepped up to roll the ball past Onana before celebrating in front of the Stretford End.

Haaland should have had a second later in the half but was brilliantly denied by Onana.

The Norway international looked certain to score when he connected well with a header from around six yards out.

But Onana somehow managed to block the shot with a diving save.

United came close to equalising later in the half when Scott McTominay had a powerful strike well saved by Onana's opposite number, Ederson.

Have you seen a better save this season?
