One sentence from Mourinho inspired United's comeback

  • Manchester City have only lost twice in the Premier League this term

Carrick, who is retiring at the end of the season, has managed just 24 minutes of Premier League football this season following heart problems.

And at the heart of all of United's struggles was £89m man Paul Pogba.

It gave United hope and how Jose Mourinho's team responded as Pogba stole in to pull a goal back after 53 minutes and head the equaliser two minutes later.

United's fight back was even more remarkable given they could have found themselves even further behind at the break had City taken more of their chances.

"We lost it so for the fans it's hard, but maybe we're going to get more credit if we are able to win the Premier League".

It was a tale of two halves for Paul Pogba and Manchester United in the thrilling derby victory over Manchester City yesterday.

"To lose against City and to see them celebrate, I couldn't let that happen".

Pogba's agent Mino Raiola told BBC Sport he did not speak to Guardiola but did not deny telling City of the players' availability. They were knocked out of the Champions League by Sevilla, Mourinho has failed to win the League in his two seasons at Old Trafford and he has often seemed at odds with some of his players at times.




For Manchester City, it was a second disastrous loss in four days.

City battles Liverpool at 2:45 p.m. Tuesday in the second leg of a Champions League quarterfinal matchup.

Guardiola said in his news conference on Friday that there was "no way" a deal for Pogba would be possible because he would be "so expensive".

After the Frenchman's finest display for Manchester United drove José Mourinho's side to a memorable 3-2 derby win, Pogba declared himself partly "disappointed".

Outclassed United remained in contention after Raheem Sterling skied two golden chances over the bar with the goal at his mercy and Gundogan headed straight at keeper David de Gea when unmarked eight yards out. "Last year, I still have it in my mind".

In this occasion, Mourinho struggled over his team's first-half performance that meant his team started slowly but played to his expectation later in the game.

Ex-England, Chelsea and Manchester City midfielder Frank Lampard said on Match of the Day: "A lot has been spoken about him all season, for good and for bad".

Despite the positives, it would be the mental impact of the derby loss that Guardiola would be anxious about, especially considering that they need to produce an incredible comeback of their own to overcome a three-goal deficit and get past Liverpool in the quarter-finals of Europe's top club competition. Sanchez took a free kick from well outside the box. The top two teams are automatically promoted, while the third through six place sides go into a playoff for the final promotion spot.
