Sir Alex Ferguson was sat in the stands to watch Manchester United’s thrilling 3-2 win against Manchester City at The Etihad on Saturday evening.

The Premier League leaders were looking to restore some pride after a disappointing 3-0 loss to Liverpool FC in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final on Wednesday night.

Manchester City surged into a 2-0 lead in the first half thanks to Vincent Kompany’s header from a corner before Ilkay Gundogan finished from close range following a superb passing move.

However, the Red Devils were transformed in the second half and Paul Pogba halved the deficit with a clinical goal following a superb team move from the visitors at the Etihad Stadium.

The club record signing, who has struggled to command a starting spot in Jose Mourinho’s team in recent months, equalised with a header to take his tally to four Premier League goals this season.

The comeback was complete when Chris Smalling made amends for allowing Kompany to break the deadlock with a goal of his own from a set-piece to deny Manchester City the title for another week.

And Ferguson was sat in the stands to watch the pulsating Manchester derby, with the Scottish head coach going through a range of emotions during a dramatic 90 minutes at The Etihad.

Manchester City are 13 points ahead of Manchester United in the table.
