Carrick proud to inspire Pogba's heroics against Man City

Carrick proud to inspire Pogba's heroics against Man City

Fans too will be hoping for the same from Pogba, and the man has his chance on Sunday as the Red Devils take on West Brom at Old Trafford.

The France worldwide scored two goals - the first time he has done so in the Premier League - in a remarkable second-half recovery from United as they won the Manchester derby 3-2 to deny City a win that would have seen Pep Guardiola's men clinch the title. During the week I was trying to fight that because I was feeling it'.

"In my experience you don't win titles with inconsistency, you win titles, of course with quality, without quality you have no chance, but you have to win titles with consistency at every level not just the performance level".

"The last title was not 20 years ago it was three years ago".

I'm sure some people will probably come in with some bids, but I don't have any interest in selling him, he's a great goalkeeper. The 33-year-old was set up by a teammate in training as he threw his body to unleash a side-volley to score a fantastic goal.

It is City's third title in seven seasons and a first under the Spaniard in his second campaign in charge. "It would be one of the best three seasons I have ever had as a player and as a manager".

With 87 points from 33 matches, City win their first Premier League title since 2013-14 under Manuel Pellegrini and their third since being bought by the Abu Dhabi United Group in 2008.

"I had a feeling when I woke up this morning", Kompany said. "One of the things we have to improve is consistency".

"Unbelievable season for us", said midfielder Kevin De Bruyne, perhaps City's standout player over the past eight months. "We're still super happy but theres is so much to do before we unlock our full potential".

It's been a mess so far with incorrect decisions even after VAR consultation and delays of play lasting up to ten minutes. He points to the spot after video review with Mainz eventually converting the penalty through Pablo de Blasis.

"My team-mates will roll their eyes as I want to see the reaction from us next season as I've never been able to retain a title".

United have been at their best this season when the onus hasn't been on them to attack, or when it seems like the opposition are more likely to score goals: Arsenal away, Everton away, Liverpool at home, City away.

A draw in that game would effectively confirm City as champions as well it would leave United 15 points behind with five games remaining, while Guardiola's side also boast a far superior goal difference. "Everybody is equal at the football club and we're all in it together".

"Everything was complicated, we couldn't play fast or think fast, everything was complicated, one more touch to control, one more turn, one more flick, one more trick and we always gave them the opportunity to be solid".
