Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku set to miss out on Manchester derby

Marcus Rashford scored for Manchester United at the Etihad in 2016

It was another brilliant performance by City, who maintain their two point lead at the top of the Premier League table.

Ahead of this afternoon's Manchester derby, fans of United found believed they identified a subtle clue about the potential involvement of Paul Pogba in today's clash with City.

Anthony Martial stepped up and converted from the spot, giving United hope of completing the comeback.

What has been key to United's resurgence has been their ability to turn games around, with United coming from behind to grab points against Newcastle, Chelsea, Bournemouth and Juventus in recent weeks.

But Ilkay Gundogan came off the bench to net the third and put the result to bed not long before full-time.

Brexit deal possible within weeks - Taoiseach
Democratic Unionist Party leader Arlene Foster has said Theresa May's no deal-Brexit plan "raises alarm bells". Without DUP support for a deal, May will have much less chance of getting her deal through parliament.

Mourinho had picked a team to defend and play for a point.

And Jesse Lingard has challenged his team-mates to continue their strong away at City - United have won seven of their last 15 away derbies and have not lost on the east side of Manchester since November 2014. They're the games you want to be involved in, like everyone else. Mourinho's team have kept just one clean sheet in the league this season and David Silva's strike in the 12th minute was the seventh time in 12 games that they have conceded first and the sixth time in nine they have conceded inside the first 20 minutes. The Spaniard is often overlooked by Mourinho, but he can hold the ball, find gaps for his attacking teammates and provide the kind of invention that the starting team was so obviously lacking.

A carnival atmosphere ensued among the crowd in the closing stages as City passed rings around Manchester United's hapless defence and midfield.

Fernandinho is 34 next May and his age has left Manchester City scouring the globe for a suitable replacement.

City made a move for Fred last January, only to miss out on the Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder following his decision to make a summer move to Manchester United instead.
