Chris Smalling of Manchester United celebrates scoring his side's third goal against Manchester City.

Manchester City blew to a two goal half-time lead to lose 3-2 to Manchester United.

The result means it's still champagne on ice for the champions elect, who are now 13 points clear with six games to play.

Vincent Kompany and Ilkay Gundogan had put City two goals to the good by the half-hour mark but a quick-fire Paul Pogba double cleared the way for Chris Smalling to net the winner.

Both sides were perhaps fortunate not to suffer red cards as tempers flared in the closing stages, with United's Ashley Young especially lucky following his flying tackle on Aguero in the area which somehow left referee Martin Atkinson unmoved.

David De Gea produced brilliant reaction saves from Aguero and the profligate Raheem Sterling at the death to help his side close out the win.
