Manchester United star spits on Manchester City badge at Etihad Stadium

Paul Pogba spoiled Manchester City's anticipated Premier League title party by scoring twice in two minutes as Manchester United came from 2-0 down to win a thrilling derby 3-2 on Saturday.

Vincent Kompany broke the deadlock in the 25th minute with a powerful header while Ilkay Gundogan doubled City's lead with a fantastic turn in the box and giving a sublime finish to the ball.

Paul Pogba scored twice to make it 2-2 before Smalling popped up to be the unlikely hero for Jose Mourinho's men, volleying home a 69th-minute victor to delay City's celebrations.

Pogba told Sky Sports the 2-1 defeat by City at Old Trafford last season "is still in my mind" and added: "If they won they are champions, for all the fans it would be like death".

"In the second we saw a different player".

"Next season we have to improve even more because this season we improved in relation to last season: more points, more victories, more goals scored, less goals conceded, better results against the top five teams". We needed to press a little bit higher and wait for a goal.

"I think we have to win at least three games now", Stoke manager Paul Lambert said. "I want to congratulate City for the title because they are going to win and deservedly".

Speaking on the Gary Neville Podcast, he said: "I've said all year, Manchester United are a far better team with Paul Pogba in it".

According to the centre-back, at half-time Mourinho warned his players to not feel like the "clowns" they would watching rivals City lift the title.

Mourinho scoffed at the Pogba transfer talk, saying: "If the accusation from his agent is that he wants to go to other clubs, his price has gone up". Plus, after they lost to Liverpool midweek in the UEFA Champions League 3-0, it was important to bring confidence levels up. "I'm very happy today".

'We played with courage and created so many chances in the first half.

Chris Smalling volleyed home the victor in the 69th minute, handing City a second straight defeat following their 3-0 Champions League reverse at Liverpool on Wednesday.

The midfielder posted 'say what?' on social media soon after the City manager's comments were published and then before kick-off was criticised by United great Gary Neville after turning up with a "ridiculous" blue hairstyle. "Now we've beaten Liverpool and City close".
