What Pep Guardiola said to Paul Pogba after Man United beat City

Man City 2 – Man United 3

Football. Bloody hell.

One of the most incredible matches of the season played out on Saturday as Man City were beaten yet again.

For the second match running, Pep Guardiola’s men conceded three goals in game.

Yet while City failed to score at Liverpool in the Champions League, United’s win at the Etihad came after the Sky Blues were 2-up at the break.

Vincent Kompany set the early tone as the City legend headed home a 25th minute corner. Five minutes later City were in dreamland as Ilkay Gundogan doubled City’s advantage.

But everything changed in the second half as United hit back. Man United scored three times in 16 second half minutes to turn the match on it’s head.

Paul Pogba scored twice, and Chris Smalling volleyed home the third as United made sure City aren’t Premier League champions this weekend.
