Paul Pogba has applauded his Manchester United teammates following the derby victory over fierce rivals Manchester City on Sunday.
United boosted their hopes of Champions League qualification at Old Trafford by completing a first league double over neighbours City since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson.
Errors in either half from City goalkeeper Ederson allowed Anthony Martial and Scott McTominay to end United's decade-long wait to take six points from their local rivals.
The 2-0 home win was a first top-flight loss at Old Trafford for City boss Pep Guardiola and kept the hosts within touching distance of fourth-placed Chelsea .
Pogba missed the match due to the long-term injury which has kept him out for the majority of the season – but the French World Cup winner was quick to congratulate his Red Devils pals.
The injured midfielder wrote on Instagram : "Manchester is red."
Pogba has played just eight games for United this season due to injury and not at all since the 4-1 win over Newcastle on Boxing Day, but has recently stepped up his recovery programme.
The French World Cup winner was not included in the Red Devils' squad for their recent warm-weather training camp in Marbella over the winter break, instead jetting off to Dubai on his own to continue his injury recovery.
It remains to be seen whether Pogba will feature again for United, with Real Madrid and Juventus keeping tabs on his situation.
