Per BBC report
Rashford was clearly offside as he chased Casemiro’s pass, but did not touch the ball, leaving it for Fernandes to whip his finish beyond Ederson.

City’s argument, with justification, was that Rashford was having a significant impact on the incident even without touching the ball because his presence clearly put him in a position where he had an effect on Nathan Ake and Manuel Akanji’s ability to make a challenge.

Referee Stuart Attwell consulted his assistant and the goal was given, much to City’s anger as their players confronted the official at the final whistle.

That’s the BBC reporters view
