Man United stage amazing comeback to delay City's title party

Manchester City vs. Manchester United: Premier League highlights and recap

Not only did he prove his doubters wrong after a wonderful second half display against Manchester City, but the 25-year-old helped United secure a famous win at the Etihad.

It was a bitterly disappointing game, not least because we dominated the first half and led 2-0.

Arguably United's most famous come-from-behind victory.

Pogba was the catalyst with two goals in the space of 90 seconds, Sanchez set up all three goals, and Smalling came up with the victor.

As for Manchester United, their only motivation is ensuring they don't have to suffer the humiliation of watching City celebrate the title on the same pitch as them.

A lot of that positive change was brought about by the two most-expensive attacking talents in the team, Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez.

Manchester City is in great form in the ongoing season of Premier League.

Yet as United trailed 2-0 at half time in this game, the French midfielder's very presence in the team was a major reason for City's dominance. Pep Guardiola's men are still the favourites to be the league champions, and getting that a win with six games to go is just a formality.

"We were not good enough in the end". However, he eventually pushed ahead in the second half like his other teammates and made some timely blocks.

It was interesting to listen to Pogba talking with Thierry Henry on Sky Sports afterwards and explaining how the runs for his two goals - first racing on to Ander Herrera's chest-down from Sanchez's pass, then surging through City's defence to head home Sanchez's exquisite ball - were largely a effect of work done with Michael Carrick. The Frenchman then ghosted right past him for the equaliser.

Arsenal, meanwhile, possessed the mental toughness, resilient character and technical quality to avoid defeat throughout 2003-04, eventually clocking up a scarcely believable 49-match unbeaten run.

If Newcastle have edged themselves out of the fight for survival, the bottom eight clubs from Brighton downwards still have work to do after a weekend which proved frustrating for majority.

Goals from Vincent Kompany and Ilkay Gundogan put them in a commanding position, but they were left to rue two glorious missed chances from Raheem Sterling.

Many have been quick to write the Portuguese manager off as a spent force.

United hasn't won the title since, a fact that is never lost on the fans.

Mourinho will be back next season, and this win will give them confidence that they can take the title off City.

"But a good manager [Jose Mourinho] maybe said in the first half "guys, we have to do something more".
