Manchester City 2 – Manchester United 3 is first on Match of the Day!
To no one’s surprise, the first game on Match of the Day tonight is the Manchester derby.
Manchester City looked like they would be celebrating the Premier League title on Saturday night when they went 2-0 up at home to their local rivals.
Goals from Vincent Kompany and Ilkay Gundogan had put Manchester City in charge.
Only for Jose Mourinho’s side to turn things around with goals from Paul Pogba (two in two minutes) and Chris Smalling.
