The Metropolis boss mentioned: 'We've to defend higher however that is soccer. TAG Heuer is the Official Timekeeping Partner of the Premier League. He said that he didn't want us to be the clowns who stand there watching them win their trophy'. Raheem Sterling was playing in the False No.9 role but it looked like a tactical masterstroke with United's centre-halves seemingly unable able to cope with him playing in front, rather than right up against them.
JS: Even so, I thought that City were still worthy of a point. "Disappointing", "below par", "average" are three unwanted adjectives that have characterised Pogba's season for United.
The bottom line is that it probably meant more to United's players than City's.
"If the accusation from his agent is that he wants to go to other clubs, his price has gone up", Mourinho said with a smile.
So it was in keeping with an nearly surreal turnaround in the game, the atmosphere inside the Etihad and mood among the respective sets of supporters that Pogba turned match-winner.
Before the dramatic second half comeback, City dominated the first half.
Paul Pogba, a mere bystander in the opening 45 minutes, came alive after the restart, bagging a 97-second brace to turn the game on its head, leaving City shell-shocked. Within two minutes, United was level.
Nothing in the first half.
That was not the end of the drama, though, as substitute Sergio Aguero had a strong claim for a penalty turned down after a challenge by Young - and moments later players from both sides clashed as tensions boiled over.
The Argentine was denied a potentially brilliant equalizer by an excellent save from David de Gea in the 89 minute.
Instead, Pogba's duff form caused unrest between him and Mourinho, and led to the manager dropping him in February for a Premier League win over Huddersfield Town and the Champions League defeat by Sevilla in March.
"My objective here was to get points and not spoil any celebrations", said Mourinho.
Premier League titles should never be won with an air of anti-climax. He showed some good skill on the ball to score his goal in the 30 minute.
The feeling is unlikely to last long but it was there all the same.
Tuesday's quarter-final second leg against Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium is going to be an uphill battle for City, with recovering a three-goal deficit tough enough before factoring in the impact of a potential away goal. "To lose against City and to see them celebrate, I couldn't let that happen".
This would have been the flawless moment.
