Paul Pogba raised his game because he felt he had the responsibility not see lifting the trophy against them which would have felt ‘like death’.

At halftime, Man City were two goals up due to goals from Vincent Kompany and Ikay Gundogan and they looked to simply be in control.

Man United came stronger in the second half of the game with Paul Pogba starring with two goals in quick succession then Chris Smalling converted a volley from Alexis Sanchez freekick to make it 2-3 at the Etihad.

“I didn’t want to lose against City. The loss from last season is still in my mind.”, Pogba who turned out to be the man of the match for the derby said.

“If they won they are champions, for all the fans it would be like death. To lose against City and to see them celebrate, I couldn’t let that happen.

“At half-time in the dressing room we said we have nothing to lose.”

Pogba’s two goals both came from late runs into the penalty area from deep and he credited a United stalwart’s influence in that.


“Michael Carrick has helped me a lot with these late runs,” added the France international. “He always shows me videos of what I should be doing.

“With City, they love to attack, they don’t like to defend, so I had to get more in the box. I knew I had Nemanja Matic behind me and Ander Herrera with me.

“For the goal I didn’t think about anything. With Alexis Sanchez, he likes to play direct. I saw the space and just went. I was lucky Kompany wasn’t tight enough.”
