Man City somehow miss chance to win title against rivals

Manchester City have missed the chance to win the Premier League title this evening after losing to Manchester United.

Goals from Vincent Kompany and İlkay Gündoğan put City in a two goal lead going into half time, but United turned it around after Paul Pogba scored twice in two minutes and Chris Smalling grabbed the winning goal all in the space of FOURTEEN minutes.

Vincent Kompany rose high above Chris Smalling, to plant a thumping header from Leroy Sane’s corner into the back of the net in the 26th minute.

Five minutes later, David de Gea’s kick is picked off and Raheem Sterling is set free inside the area. He laid the ball off to Ilkay Gundogan, who turns Nemanja Matic brilliantly, before poking a low finish into the net from 12 yards out.

City then started the second half in similar fashion as Gundogan clipped the post with a curling effort but Pogba’s quick double interrupted their rhythm and reversed the momentum.

City were starting to look as shambolic as United did in the first half and the visitors completed a remarkable turnaround in the 69th minute. Chris Smalling was guilty of losing Kompany for the opening goal, but became the hero by firing United ahead.

Guardiola quickly turned to Kevin De Bruyne, Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero in a bid to change things again but now travel to Wembley to face Tottenham again needing three points to win the title.
