Manchester City failed to wrap up the Premier League title at the Etihad, with Manchester United completing a second half comeback to deny Pep Guardiola the Premier League title for another week.
City took the lead in the first half with two quick fire goals from Vincent Kompany and Ilkay Gundogan that looked to be sending City to another Premier League title.
However, United returned from half time with new life, and a space of 97 seconds turned the game on it’s head. Paul Pogba netted twice to level the game for City, coming just days after the news the midfielder was possibly offered to Guardiola in the Summer came out.
Chris Smalling would then seal the three points for United, ending City’s hopes of wrapping up the Premier League title against their biggest rivals.
Here’s how we rated the United players on a historic night for Manchester United fans everywhere.
David De Gea - 8
First two goals were a concern, but was a standout performer in the second half.
Antonio Valencia - 7
Solid performance from Valencia in the second half.
Eric Bailly - 7
Struggled in the first half, but like the rest of the United defence, improved rapidly in the second.
Chris Smalling - 8
Netted the winner, although poor in the first.
Ashley Young - 5
Got away with murder with the referee. Should’ve been red carded and given a penalty away.
Ander Herrera - 7
Attempted to mark Silva out of the game, but failed. Assist for the first was sublime.
Nemanja Matic - 7
Solid performance in the middle. Good work from the United midfielder.
Paul Pogba - 9
Answered his doubters in superb fashion. Two great goals in a difficult week for the Frenchman.
Jesse Lingard - 7
Big improvement in the second half from the winger.
Romelu Lukaku - 7
Didn’t net, but still had a solid outing.
Alexis Sanchez - 8
One of Sanchez’s best games for United so far.
N/A for all due to a lack of time on the pitch.
