Manchester City v Manchester United - Premier League
Both Chris Smalling and Paul Pogba scored for Manchester United in their derby comeback

Manchester United came from behind to beat Manchester City 3-2 in the derby at the Etihad on Saturday in the Premier League. United were 2-0 down at half-time before an inspired second-half comeback saw the Red Devils put the Cityzens to the sword.

It was City who drew first blood through Vincent Kompany in the first half when he powered home a header from a corner kick. It brought back memories of the 2012 triumph when they first won the title and Kompany had scored in the derby back then too with a header.

Ilkay Gundogan then made it 2-0 with a sublime piece of skill in the box and suddenly City had one hand on the title. However, Paul Pogba turned things around in less than two minutes at the start of the second half to make it 2-2.

Chris Smalling then made it 3-2 to United from a set-piece and that is when tempers started to flare all across the pitch with every foul seeing players squaring up and surrounding the referee to force a booking - a proper derby!

In the end, it was United who took the three points to delay City's title celebrations. Here's how Twitter reacted to the derby!

Vincent Kompany opened the scoring for Manchester City with a powerful header in the first half.

While there were many who weren't happy with Paul Pogba's performance in the first half.

But Pogba soon halved the lead and then scored the equaliser in the second half to make it 2-2 in 97 seconds!

Chris Smalling then made it 3-2 to United from a set-piece with City's poor defending allowing him to get free and score past Ederson.

And right at the end, David De Gea denied City a certain goal with a fine reflex save when Aguero got a header on target.
