United postpone title celebration by City with 3-2 win

United postpone title celebration by City with 3-2 win

The Etihad grew silent but United were not finished as Smalling atoned for City's first goal when he hot on the end of a free kick from Sanchez.

Reports emerged yesterday that the midfielder was offered to Pep Guardiola by his agent Mino Raiola, the City manager revealing the information in a thinly veiled dig at the Italian.

Then he let his feet do the talking.

Manchester City went into the weekend with the chance to win the Premier League title against Manchester United at the Etihad.

However, Manchester City has missed a chance to secure the league title by leaving highest number of matches in hand this season in English Premier League. "I knew I had Nemanja Matic behind me and Ander Herrera with me".

"We played good in both halves, you must look at what happened in the game and not make a judgment based on the result". Especially Tuesday and Wednesday, he had two fantastic training sessions.

"I have to be honest, when we first saw it, we were a bit "oo, it looks like a pen", he said on Match of the Day.

Pogba joined United in 2016 for a then-world record fee of about 105 million euros ($116 million).

Guardiola tried to rescue it by bringing De Bruyne, Jesus and Augero off the bench, but it wasn't enough as United took the spoils and more importantly the bragging rights. He played like he had a point to prove. "But we lost it", said Guardiola. "If they won they are champions, for all the fans it would be like death".

"I'm really pleased they showed character to stay in it, dig in and work well with each other", West Brom caretaker manager Darren Moore said.

Mourinho spoke about how United have improved this season in all areas and how that curve needs to continue next season.

Guardiola made a beeline for Pogba at full-time but claims to have only congratulated him for the win and not mentioned his pre-match comments.

Before yesterday, Pogba started only five of United's last 12 games, with Mourinho sometimes preferring youth-team graduate and new Scotland global Scott McTominay ahead of his more illustrious colleague.

"After a second half like this, we have to do that all the time".

One fan said of the stat: "Yet the media will have you believe Mourinho is the enemy of football".

Coming from a 3-0 defeat to Liverpool in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League quarterfinal clash, the Citizens got the game off to a flying start with two first half goals from Vincent Kompany and Ilkay Guendogan.

They could have had a penalty within five minutes when Ashley Young slipped and appeared to touch the ball away from Raheem Sterling after David Silva had crossed in from the left.

Paul Pogba bagged a brilliant brace before Smalling made up for his shoddy marking earlier to score the victor.
