Manchester United produced a stunning second-half fightback at the Etihad to overturn a 2-0 half-time deficit to win 3-2 and deny Manchester City the chance to seal the Premier League title.

If you are a football, then these derby matches are just for you. What we witnessed yesterday was a typical Manchester United Comeback which not only defeated their noisy neighbors Manchester City 2-3 but also spoiled their title party and it had to wait a little longer.

At the half time, Manchester United were trailing 2-0 with first half goals from Manchester City Captaion Vincent Kompany and Illkay Gundogan.

Paul Pogba pulled one back for the visitors in the 53rd minute, finishing off a fantastic team move with assist from Ander Hererra.

And just minutes later, Pogba equalised with a powerful header past Ederson on 55th Minute.

Winning Goal

Chris Smalling then netted winner from close range from an Alexis Sanchez free-kick to win game for United.

In a furious finale, players from both sides clashed and Ashley Young was fortunate that his wild lunge on City substitute Sergio Aguero in the area was ignored by referee Martin Atkinson.

De Gea made a world-class one-handed save from Aguero as City attacked furiously – but United held out and Guardiola’s title party must wait for another day.
