The Moment This Man City Steward Was Exposed After Derby Day Winner

The Manchester United defender was outdone by City centre-back Vincent Kompany in the first half, allowing the Belgian to score the hosts' opener.

Then five minutes later Ilkay Gundogan doubled City's lead.

City had chances to extend their two-goal lead in the first half, with Raheem Sterling, in particular, guilty of two big misses.

With Nemanja Matic and Ander Herrera sitting deep in the second-half, United went for it as they had nothing to lose at 2-0 down and found themselves level bare minutes after the interval thanks to a quick-fire brace from their No.6.

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.

De Gea then pulled off a sensational save in the 89th minute to deny Aguero a late equaliser, before Sterling saw the ball ricochet off his hip and nearly squeeze in before the keeper palmed it away.

Danilo was saddened by Manchester City's dramatic defeat to Manchester United on Saturday and accused Jose Mourinho's side of snatching victory through "long balls". That's why I congratulate Manchester City, because they are going to win the title and deserve to win the title.

The goal was nearly identical to the one he scored in a 1-0 win over United in April 2012, which saw City leapfrog their rivals in the table and go on to win the league. We had more ball than normally teams get against City.

The London club also have a game in hand as they seek to finish second behind Manchester City.

Yet just when it seemed United were being outplayed to the point of embarrassment, they launched an astonishing comeback soon after the break with Pogba, previously anonymous despite a new flashy blue hair-do, striking twice in two minutes.

Pogba hit the headlines on Friday night after Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola revealed his agent Mino Raiola had offered him the chance to sign the midfielder in January.

The result marked City's second consecutive defeat in the space of a week and their first home league loss in 16 months.

They have conceded four goals against City this season and three have been from set-pieces.

In comparison, Pogba has five this season alone. He's not had a great time at United but he was brilliant in the second half.

"The primary half was awful, we dropped off did not play our recreation, and will have been out of sight".

In the video below we soaked up the frenzied atmosphere, catching up with excited Man City fans in the build-up to the eagerly anticipated derby, and finding out just what they think of that man Mourinho, along with their pre-match predictions.

Guardiola's staff have to win at Spurs subsequent Saturday at Wembley Stadium and hope United drop factors towards West Brom the next day.
