What Paul Pogba Said To David De Gea After The Manchester Derby

What Paul Pogba Said To David De Gea After The Manchester Derby

"For all the (United) fans, it would be like death".

But as it is, dubbing them the greatest is as premature as the celebrations at 2-0 up on Saturday.

"I give the credit to Michael Carrick, because after the game every game he shows me the video and says to make those runs".

The Red Devils were abysmal in the first period but two goals from Paul Pogba followed by Smalling's victor spared their blushes.

Manchester United's Paul Pogba scores their first goal against Manchester City in the Premier League. Their capitulation in defence was pretty embarrassing and gave another insight into the team's weakness that opponents could potentially exploit.

City fans will have to wait a little longer for their fireworks display.

For all the inevitability of City's eventual confirmation of their third Premier League title, there was genuine disappointment and frustration from their supporters that it was not achieved with United in opposition. City will still be the team to beat next season and chances are they will win the title but a big margin.

But playing like he did in the second half, he would get in any team in the world.

The Brazilian broke attacks exceptionally well and didn't afford United much space in the midfield in the first-half.

The second half was another story. It was by far his best game as a Manchester United player.

"We have to focus on what we did wrong and we must improve, but we must not forget what we did all season". This Manchester City side are aesthetically lovely but the past few days have raised serious questions about their character and attitude when things do not go their way.

"It's the first time we've lost two games in a row this season and now we have to recover and try again, go back to the basics and win games", said a frustrated Guardiola. It was the first time that the two of them showed that they could dovetail beautifully, alternating in their roles and responsibilities to accommodate each other. David De Gea made that brilliant save from Sergio Aguero, Sterling hit the post from two yards and then there was that Ashley Young tackle on Aguero.

His 55th minute finish came after he found Sanchez to his left as he was dribbling toward the City goal.

Here is a video compilation of the 29-year-old's decisive second half performance at the Ethiad.

The match was also important for Mourinho.

Lampard said "with that haircut you need to perform", while former Manchester United full-back Gary Neville called it "ridiculous".

RD: It was a good time to play City and even though it was a strong side, they weren't at full strength.
