Bradley Wright-Phillips scored for New York Red Bulls as they beat derby rivals New York City FC 3-1 in Major League Soccer.

New York City, the franchise team of English side Manchester City where Wright-Phillips started his career, took the lead through Thomas McNamara.

Wright-Phillips equalised for the visitors just after the break before Chris Duvall put them in front.

Matt Miazga secured the win for the Red Bulls, who won May's inaugural derby.

Former West Ham, Chelsea and Manchester City midfielder Frank Lampard has been signed by New York City FC and was in attendance at Yankee Stadium.

Real Madrid midfielder Gareth Bale was also one of the 48,000 spectators as the Red Bulls scored three times in a league game for the first time this season.

The win moved the Red Bulls fourth in the Eastern Conference, with City ninth.
