‘You Are Number One!’….Paul Pogba Hails David De Gea As Manchester United Crash Manchester City Title Party

Paul Pogba paid a special tribute to goalkeeper David De Gea after Manchester United’s stunning comeback victory against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium. Goals from Vincent Kompany and Ilkay Gundogan put United two behind after 30 minutes and Jose Mourinho’s side were lucky not to concede even more as Raheem Sterling missed two excellent chances to extend City’s lead.But United staged an impressive comeback in the second half, which was sparked by Pogba’s double before Chris Smalling got on the end of Alexis Sanchez’s free-kick to score the winner. Sergio Aguero had the chance to equalise for City but his effort was denied by another stunning reflex save from De Gea.After his side’s victory at the Etihad Stadium, Pogba went up to United’s fans to celebrate with them. But then the France international made a beeline to De Gea and said to United’s goalkeeper in Spanish: ‘You are number one. You are number one.’ Mourinho, meanwhile, has used the result as a chance to claim that United have received harsh criticism this season. ‘We deserve a bit more respect than people give,’ he said. ‘I think we are a bit better that what people think, the players are a bit better than what people think and I am a bit better than what people think.’Photo Credit: Getty
