"They deserve the title because they don't give anyone else a chance". Yet, somehow, Pogba returned for the second half reborn, pulling one back before quickly netting another and producing a fine display in the middle of the park. On what level can this Manchester City side compete with those achievements?
The title looked to be in the bag, and City seemed in great shape ahead of their Champions League quarter-final second leg with Liverpool.
However, they produced a memorable turnaround at the Etihad to win 3-2.
This is a truly special opportunity for City to win the title against their fiercest rivals, but Guardiola would be justified in rotating his squad. Beyond the Premier League, though, they've been found wanting.
The immediate implication of the loss was the postponement of their title celebrations, which will surely still happen at some stage in the coming weeks with Pep Guardiola's side enjoying a 13-point lead.
Guardiola continued: 'A special day for United which is a pity.
But the England defender, who made amends with a brilliant strike after Paul Pogba's quickfire double, said: 'I owed them that.
The bottom line is that it probably meant more to United's players than City's. It was probably his best game in a United shirt.
Rafa Benitez has done an incredbile job this season with newly-promoted Newcastle United.
They have dominated the league - just like Chelsea last season, although in more attractive style - but have fallen short at key moments.
The most famous collapse in Premier League history came from Newcastle in 1995-96. Brighton (13th, 35 points ), West Ham (14th, 34 points), Swansea (15th, 32 points), Huddersfield (16th, 32 points), and Crystal Palace (17th, 31 points) all picked up a points. In any case, points tallies are not the hallmark of the best teams anyway. Ruben Neves, who is the favorite for the Player of the Year, scored from a free kick in the 67th minute. As good as he was in the second half, he was woeful in the first half'.
And the game quickly settled into the usual pattern when the two face off with City dominating possession and United happy to get plenty of men behind the ball.
