Manchester United and Manchester City fans clash over Marcus Rashford and Kelechi Iheanacho

There's been plenty of back and forth between Manchester United and Manchester City fans over the last 24 hours, and at the heart of the debate is two of the most exciting young talents in the country.

While Marcus Rashford was gearing up to lead the line for the Red Devils in their FA Cup semi-final against Everton, fellow exciting youngster Kelechi Iheanacho was bagging a brace in City's 4-0 victory against Stoke.

Both players have hit the headlines this season thanks to their superb form. Rashford made history when he scored on both his full and Premier League debuts for Manchester United, and has more than plugged the (pudgy, pale-skinned) gap left behind by an injured Wayne Rooney.

Iheanacho meanwhile has been quietly going about his business in the Premier League, and has actually outscored his Manchester rival this term.

The Nigerian has managed 11 goals in his 500 minutes so far this term, compared to Rashford's seven in 547 minutes.

But while the City faithful have been using that statistic to claim victory, their United rivals have pointed out that while Rashford has come up with the goods on the big stage - most notably in the Manchester derby last month - Iheanacho has scored his goals late on with the game already over.

You can check out the best of the back and forth below, along with each player's highlights to help you make your own mind up over who is the most promising prospect.

There is of course a simple answer to the question. The best youngster in the league is of course....Dele Alli.

The Spurs youngster has more goals and assists than either striker, and has already earned his first full international cap for England. All that's left is to guide Tottenham to the title and the Three Lions to Euro 2016 glory...

Who do you think is better; Rashford or Iheanacho?
