Manchester United's performances under Jose Mourinho can be hard to watch sometimes but he really got his team pumped up for the derby to be fair.well, for the second-half at least. However, he improved in the second half and put in some crucial challenges although was lucky not to concede a penalty.
Rio Ferdinand felt Manchester United's incredible comeback victory over rivals City showed the team care about playing for the shirt and could handle the intense pressure of the occasion.
The Citizens were left stunned, and could have had an equaliser, were it not for a combination of poor finishing from Raheem Sterling, and a stunning save from David de Gea.

The blitz started in the 53rd minute. Ninety seconds later Pogba had a second, a header of some beauty, as he hung in the air before flicking the ball past the helpless Ederson again.

"I was thinking at half time that it was going to be hard for them if we got beaten, so I'm happy for them". A vital step away from the gritty, dogged, defensive rigidity deployed against top sides, which, rightly or wrongly, defines him.
