Pogba and Smalling put City’s title party on hold

Manchester United rallied from two goals down to win a pulsating derby 3-2 and deny Manchester City the chance to claim the Premier League title against their local rivals.

City looked on course to be crowned PL champions after racing into a two-goal lead courtesy of Vincent Kompany and Ilkay Gundogan.

But Paul Pogba’s double early in the second half turned the match on its head before Chris Smalling headed in the winner.

Kompany headed in from Leroy Sane’s corner on 25 minutes, before Gundogan turned on Raheem Sterling’s pass and prodded in the second.

Pogba pulled a goal back on 53 minutes from Ander Herrera’s chested pass, before heading in his second from United’s next attack.

Smalling nodded in Sanchez’s free-kick, a second assist for the Chilean, and David De Gea denied Sergio Aguero a leveller with a brilliant save.

City remain 13 points clear of second-placed United with five matches remaining.
