Man City denied title by famous United comeback

City took a first half lead, getting goals from Vincent Kompany and Ilkay Gündoğan in the 25th and 30th minute, respectively.

"The first half was negative of Pogba - he did not threaten the midfield or the backline and was passive".

Harry Kane made his return for Spurs after almost a month out with injury but it was Eriksen who orchestrated the victory with two goals in 11 second-half minutes, taking his goal tally to five in three games in all competitions.

However, a quick-fire Paul Pogba double sparked a United comeback at the start of the second period, with Chris Smalling applying the finishing touch to a magical afternoon.

When Gundogan turned sweetly and poked a right-foot finish beyond De Gea after half an hour, the champagne was being placed on ice by Manchester City's supporters - and on the evidence up to that point no-one could blame them. Liverpool beat City 3-0 Wednesday, in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals. He needs to be our main player because when he plays in that position he needs to resolve the games and he needs to take responsibilities. "I want to congratulate City for the title because they are going to win and deservedly". One of the players at fault for City's second goal which came from his bad clearance, the Spain goalkeeper redeemed himself with a remarkable one-handed save from Sergio Aguero.

Mourinho was not keen to be drawn on the City boss' pre-match hand grenade and instead used his press conference to praise Pogba's display.

It also showed exactly why he had asked the club to pay £89 million to sign Pogba and proved that the midfielder can perform the tasks required of him on a consistent basis, given that there is stability offered like the one provided by the midfield duo of Nemanja Matic and Ander Herrera on Saturday.

Herrera said: "Paul can be the best in the world".

As the dust settles on Manchester United's stunning three-goal comeback against arch adversaries Manchester City, much will be made of City's collapse and Pep Guardiola's inability to affect the game tactically from the sidelines.

"And, of course, now it is not done, so the people say, "you're going to win". City have conceded six goals in two games now and the defence looks flaky whenever they're under pressure.

Raheem Sterling's old uncertainty in front of goal, absent this season, suddenly returned and his two missed chances ended up as decisive moments in a most unlikely turn of events.
