Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United set the Etihad ablaze with a shocking display of character earlier today. The 20-time Premier League winner proved to be a tough nut to crack for their neighbours.
Pep Guardiola’s men appeared to be heading for a comfortable victory despite starting the game with an under-strength squad by leading 2-0 at half-time.
Mourinho has beaten City, Spurs, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal this season. Shame he’s past it.

Captain Vincent Kompany headed past David De Gea before Ilkay Gundogan neatly added a second for the home side. English winger Raheem Sterling had chances seal the game but was wasteful.
United would however punish the Blues after the break as Paul Pogba scored twice in 97 seconds.
No manager has ever done the Premier League double over Jose Mourinho in his seven full seasons in England.

And Chris Smalling completed the incredible turnaround as he tapped home the winner.
