  • Ander Herrera denies intentionally spitting on Manchester City crest

Midfielder Paul Pogba scored twice in two minutes to shock City and defender Chris Smalling volleyed home the victor from Alexis Sanchez's free kick in the 69th minute to seal a 3-2 comeback win at the Etihad Stadium to spoil City's anticipated title party.

Shay Given believes Manchester Untied's David de Gea is the best goalkeeper in the world.

In the second-half United's Portuguese supremo, desperate for his side not to be the "clowns" in City's title coronation, abandoned his usual conservative mindset - or, rather, his players did. And United took just 16 minutes to complete an incredible turnaround when Smalling capitalised on some slack City marking to turn home Sanchez's free-kick. Young was lucky with both incidents - either could have gone the other way.

He and his family moved to the Rio Grande Valley in South Texas from a border town in Mexico when Villarreal was just a child. If by "rethink how to help migrants", NBC means "surrender them to Mexican authorities" that story is roughly accurate.

For 45 minutes Saturday in the Manchester derby, it looked like Manchester City would end the night celebrating a third Premier League title since 2012.

"Every season, whoever wins the Premier League, the teams beneath them have to improve". City will still be the team to beat next season and chances are they will win the title but a big margin.

At half-time, having been completely outplayed by Pep Guardiola's champions elect, United found themselves 2-0 down after goals from Vincent Kompany and Ilkay Gundogan. "He can be that top-class player he is threatening to be". However, for his opposite number - Jose Mourinho - yesterday's exercise in glorious escapology could prove a catalyst for a change, a move away from tedious, mundane conservatism.

The Red Devils were abysmal in the first period but two goals from Paul Pogba followed by Smalling's victor spared their blushes.

Ray Wilkins tributes held by Chelsea ahead of West Ham match
Respects paid, Chelsea had to focus on finding a way to end a damaging run of one win from their previous four league matches. You have to try always [to worry] that the players have confidence, that they are sad, how do you make them happy?

City were stunned - flaws exposed. City's Champions League hopes were likely ended by conceding three times in 19 minutes at Anfield in midweek. Lightning had struck twice in the space of four days. Jurgen Klopp must have been delighted.

And, as the game wore on, he substituted midfielder James Milner and forward Sadio Mane, perhaps with one eye on Tuesday's second leg at Etihad Stadium. Manchester United not only won it in 1999, they did so as part of an unprecedented Treble, maintaining a previously unseen quality at such a demanding level in the three competitions that matter most. To be honest, he wouldn't have got in Tranmere's team the way he performed in the first half on Saturday.

After the break, the only heated moments came when Wayne Rooney reacted angrily to being substituted, and Danny Ings and Seamus Coleman briefly clashed. And that's not even including half-chances.

The leader was, however, conspicuous by her absence at the court since she boycotted the trial accusing to be biased against her. Apparently this was as a result of a scandal that exposed webs of corruption between political leaders and the country bigwigs.
