Manchester City need to defeat their neighbours in yesterday’s derby clash to be crowned the league Champions but things didn’t turn out as expected for the Citizens as they were beaten by the Red Devils despite leading by two goal-margin in the first half of the encounter.
Having conceded two goals against a strong team of City’s caliber, José Mourinho’s men require great inspiration to get back into the game and they got that from ‘new boy’ Alexis Sanchez whose yesterday’s performance was one of the best he’s ever produced since making his summer switch to Old Trafford.
Paul Pogba’s goal after great work from Alexis Sanchez gave United some hope of pulling a shock result against the runaway leaders.
The Chilean was also on ground to start the play which led to United’s second and equalizing goal scored by Chris Smalling.
Paul Pogba, who has been out of form for the larger part of the season, surprised fans and pundits as he scored the equalizing goal of the encounter in the latter stage.
Though Pogba scored a brace for the second time this season, Alexis Sanchez keeps on getting praises from fans on social media for his man-of-the-match display.
Liam Canning, via his Twitter account, admited Sanchez put in his best performance since joining the Red Devils last winter.
Another fan thanked Arsenal and Chelsea for selling him Sanchez and Matic, claiming both players were strong throughout the game.
According to Aditya Rathod, Sanchez is getting better game after game and his ball deliveries into City’s box was awesome and topnotch.
