Jose Mourinho must now abandon his turgid philosophy

Raheem Sterling missed a host of chances against Manchester United

The result marked City's second consecutive defeat in the space of a week and their first home league loss in 16 months.

"The Manchester United badge carries a large responsibility".

"We lost it so for the fans it's hard, but maybe we're going to get more credit if we are able to win the Premier League".

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. Hopefully, next season would be when these two coaches would take it to the next level.

United's fans had been forced to take this all on the chin, as had Mourinho, who stood motionless in his overcoat while Guardiola cast aside his own version and was down to his stylish jumper as he prowled the technical area.

But Paul Pogba had other ideas.

Pogba's agent Mino Raiola told BBC Sport he did not speak to Guardiola but did not deny telling City of the players' availability.

The mentioned trio turned into match winners as United mounted an unlikely, and stunning, comeback.

Nemanja Matic (6) - The Serbian was poor in the first half to say the least, but throughout the second half, he played with a lot of energy and broke down play at vital times.

Paul Pogba scored two goals within three minutes before Chris Smalling popped up with a volley to make up for his mistake for City's opener.

"My dream is happening in the first half, when we didn't concede one shot on target".

Also, the current price to earnings for Amazon .com, Inc.is 308.19 and the forward price to earnings is 91.67. ARGI Investment Services LLC increased its position in shares of Amazon .com by 7.9% in the second quarter.

His second, headed in two minutes later, created an air of panic.

The sense was compounded by that bad first half.

But with the world's best goalkeeper on guard for the Red Devils, even the noisiest Cityzens were shushed when David De Gea pulled an absolute blinder-of-a-save to keep Aguero's header from entering his net, right towards the end of the sensational match.

The title will be won but there were wider factors at play.

City battles Liverpool at 2:45 p.m. Tuesday in the second leg of a Champions League quarterfinal matchup.

United, the 20-time English champion in whose shadow City has lived for so long, was in City's Etihad Stadium fortress for the title clincher and derby.

It was symbolic of a day that was brilliantly chaotic and defied all logic.

The greatest Premier League side ever, it was claimed in some quarters.

The victory over City stretched United's unbeaten run to five games and remained a gap on the table between third-placed Liverpool and fourth-placed Tottenham, which has set a tone for United to complete their campaign in a second place.

As Manchester City stylishly swept all before them earlier in the season, a debate sprung up that looked peculiar then and positively ridiculous now. City looked exhausted and perhaps they started looking ahead of what is a bigger game against Liverpool on Tuesday.

But there must be serious concerns that the return of the former fragility in defence threatens their attempt at a comeback.
