Manchester United produced a sensational three-goal comeback in the second half to beat Manchester City 3-2 at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.
United attempted to press City high up the pitch and remain compact in the final third, but the hosts were still able to create a number of chances in the first half.
David de Gea pulled off a smart stop down low to keep out Bernardo Silva, just moments before Vincent Kompany got ahead of Chris Smalling to power a header past the Spaniard from the edge of the six-yard box.
Five minutes later the second arrived through Ilkay Gundogan, who turned in the box to work a yard of space and then simply poked the ball into the bottom corner.
City, beaten in three of their last eight heading into this match, had no intention of sitting back and they really should have been out of sight before the interval.
A good opening also came and went for Gundogan, largely thanks to the positioning of De Gea to keep out the glanced header from a deep delivery.
Despite his goalkeeper having the most first-half touches of any player in his starting lineup, Jose Mourinho held off from making a change, and it looked like being a familiar story early in the second period as Gundogan clipped the post with his latest effort.
In the blink of an eye it was game on once again, though, with Pogba rounding off a fine team move that saw Ander Herrera chest the ball into his path following some good play from Alexis Sanchez on the right.
Pogba’s second was equally as impressive, this time coming from a deep midfield run to get on the end of a Sanchez pass and glance past a stunned Ederson.
The comeback was complete with a little over 20 minutes to go courtesy of Smalling’s volley, getting on the end of Sanchez’s free kick to make amends for his poor defensive play for City’s opener.
Pep Guardiola immediately turned to Gabriel Jesus and Kevin De Bruyne from the bench, soon to be joined by returning striker Sergio Aguero.
City felt that they should have had a penalty late on when Young’s foot went over the ball and caught Aguero on the shin, but Martin Atkinson felt otherwise, leading to complaints from Fernandinho and was shown a yellow to rule him out of his side’s next two league games.
