Jose Mourinho has responded to claims that Paul Pogba was offered to Manchester City in the summer following Manchester United's incredible 3-2 comeback at the Etihad Stadium.

Paul Pogba flies through the air to score Manchester United's first goal in their 3-2 win at Manchester City.

Mourinho refuted those claims prior to Saturday's match when he told Sky Sports that "one of them is a liar".

City then started the second half in similar fashion as Gundogan clipped the post with a curling effort but Pogba's quick double interrupted their rhythm and reversed the momentum.

Manchester City defender, Danilo has bemoaned losing to long balls, after a 3-2 derby defeat on Saturday. It's a very important result for us because we need six points to finish in the top four and that's the compulsory objective.

With this win, Manchester United have been able to reduce the gap between them and Pep Guardiola's men on the log to 13 points with 6 games to the end of the current league season.

He committed himself forward at a high tempo - something he could have done more of at times this season - and it ended for City a winning run at home in the league that dated back to August, depriving them of making history in the process.

According to the centre-back, at half-time Mourinho warned his players to not feel like the "clowns" they would watching rivals City lift the title. "If his agent was offering him to some clubs, the price has now gone up a lot".

In the meantime, they welcome Liverpool to the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday in a must win UEFA Champions League clash.

"To lose against City and to see them celebrate, I couldn't let that happen".

Goals by Vincent Kompany and Ilkay Gundogan in the 25th and 31st minutes gave Manchester City a 2-0 lead at halftime, and the home side could have even been up by five goals, had Raheem Sterling and even Gundogan finished off their chances.

"I was impressed but I don't know because I didn't even speak with him about what Pep told and what Raiola told", the United boss said.

And the game quickly settled into the usual pattern when the two face off with City dominating possession and United happy to get plenty of men behind the ball. "Now we've beaten Liverpool and City close".
