Two things Manchester United gained from Manchester Derby win

Raheem Sterling missed a host of chances against Manchester United

Factor in zero goals in any competition for United since a 4-1 win over Newcastle United on November 18th and Pep Guardiola's pre-derby revelation that Pogba's agent, Mino Raiola, had offered him in the winter window, and the player's future at United beyond the summer appeared in the balance. To be honest, he wouldn't have got in Tranmere's team the way he performed in the first half on Saturday.

"You need self-confidence and arrogance and he has certainly got that", Moyes told the Evening Standard's Jack Rosser in February.

The Argentine was denied a potentially brilliant equalizer by an excellent save from David de Gea in the 89 minute.

Alexis Sanchez (9) - Sanchez, like Pogba, was phenomenal in the second period and was involved in every goal, creating the chance for United's first, and assisting the second and third.

It has only been City's own vast superiority that has opened up this prospect but the reaction of some of their supporters at the end illustrated this was a damaging day, allowing United to restore some pride and remind their neighbours they are still in town. However, their defensive fallibility remains and is their Achilles heel, as demonstrated by both Liverpool in the Champions League and United on Saturday. There wasn't a better time to play City - in the middle of two draining and all-encompassing Champions League games.

United pulled level by half-time and Andy Cole's victor six minutes from time was no more than they deserved. United's best Premier League side accrued "just" 79 points in that Treble season. One of the players at fault for City's second goal which came from his bad clearance, the Spain goalkeeper redeemed himself with a remarkable one-handed save from Sergio Aguero. After a scintillating and dominating first-half performance, City failed to back it up with professionalism in the second half of the match.

Apple May Ditch Intel Chips For Macs By 2020
It was a partnership that shook up the PC industry and saw Apple shift away from chips co-developed by IBM and Motorola. Companies such as Dell, HP, Lenovo, and a handful of others rely on Intel for their computers' chips.

Mourinho was not keen to be drawn on the City boss' pre-match hand grenade and instead used his press conference to praise Pogba's display.

"I told (Nemanja) Matic, (Ander) Herrera and Pogba that they could not improve a lot from what they did in the first half because they had confidence to play and to move the ball and give passes".

Herrera said: "Paul can be the best in the world". When the weeping fans glance at the standings they will still see City 13 points clear of United at the summit with six games remaining.

"And, of course, now it is not done, so the people say, "you're going to win".

For Manchester City, it was a second disastrous loss in four days. Hopefully, next season would be when these two coaches would take it to the next level.
