Manchester United shocked derby rivals Manchester City as the Red Devils came back from two goals down to win at the Etihad. The Manchester Derby was the second successive defeat Manchester City have suffered and now Pep Guardiola’s team go into the Champions League quarterfinal second leg against Liverpool down 3-0.
Manchester City took a first half lead in the fixture through Vincent Kompany and Ilkay Gundogan. Leading 2-0 within the first 30 minutes, Manchester City looked likely to cruise to victory. However, Jose Mourinho’s side powered back through two Paul Pogba goals in the second half. The Frenchman scored two goals within two minutes to draw the sides level. Chris Smalling secured the winning goal in the 69th minute, giving the Red Devils the win over their Manchester Derby rivals.

3 – Manchester United failed to attempt a single shot on target in the first half of this game, but have scored three goals from four shots on target in the opening 23 mins & 34 secs of the second half. Turnaround.

The players can say whatever they like. They’re not ‘a family’. They don’t fight for each other. They’re individuals without structure.
Mourinho hasn’t given them one. This is a training exercise for Manchester City. Embarrassing.

Just don't understand what Manchester United do all week to turn up and play like this? There's no game plan. They've seen how to beat City by Liverpool, yet they play the complete opposite. No desire or care whatsoever.
