The title party is well and truly spoiled... for a week at least. City had looked set to seal their third Premier League trophy and things looked to be going swimmingly in the first half, as goals from Vincent Kompany and Ilkay Gundogan looked to condemn United to defeat.
But United came out roaring in the second half and two quick fire goals from Paul Pogba to draw the sides level. A free kick in the 69th minute was steered home by Chris Smalling and the Red Devils held out to push City's inevitable title party to a later date.
But it was Pogba who took centre stage in the 5.30 kick-off, and with many harsh words said about his choice of hairdo the Frenchman proved today on the pitch that he can still produce the goods, despite much uncertainty surrounding his future.
Reports emerged yesterday that the midfielder was offered to Pep Guardiola by his agent Mino Raiola, the City manager revealing the information in a thinly veiled dig at the Italian. Much of the talk in the run up to the game was Pogba's future at the club, but the Frenchman turned in a match winning performance today, and Jose Mourinho particularly effusive in his praise of his player after the game.
In his post match interview with Geoff Shreeves, the Mourinho was asked whether Pogba could have played better in the first half but the United manager refused to criticise Pogba or indeed any of his midfielders, instead focusing on his centre backs 'sloppy' play as well as explaining that United's wingers needed to become more involved in the game.
Mourinho then payed Pogba the biggest compliment he has in a while referencing Guardiola's claims about Raiola, joking that if the former Juventus man is for sale then his price has just increased.
I was not asking for Paul to improve (in the second half) because I was already happy with what he was doing in the first half, but two fantastic goals... I'm really pleased for him. So... if it's true that his agent offered him to some clubs now the price is... gone up.
