Hat-trick Haaland, Hat-trick Foden: Man City tears ManUnited apart
Manchester is blue – and something of that! Three goals from each Erling Haaland and Phil Foden provided Manchester City with a show of force against local rivals United. Only Antony could do some cosmetics for the Red Devils. Towards the end, City’s concentration waned and United corrected the result with a one-two from Joker Anthony Martial.
He’s just a phenomenon: Erling Haaland scored against in the city derby Manchester United on Sunday his season goals 12, 13 and 14 – on the eighth matchday! Haaland now has a total of 17 goals in nine games for his new employer.
The Norwegian wasn’t the only attacker in Pep Guardiola’s team to shine against Man United: Phil Foden, who put City ahead, also scored three goals.
At Manchester United, on the other hand, as little came together as the result suggests. The 4:0 at half-time was also deserved in terms of height, only the goal worth seeing after Antony changed sides can be positively emphasized on this Sunday in the red part of the city. The non-performance of the team was also honored by some fans who left the stadium at half-time. Ouch!
When the score was 6:1, City finally shifted down two or three gears. This invited Manchester City to at least tweak the result a bit: Substitute Anthony Martial scored first with a header and then with a penalty to make it 6:2 and 6:3.
Erik ten Hag will face fresh criticism after this game. The question marks at Manchester United remain, the Red Devils don’t really get on track even under the Dutchman. The exact opposite applies to Manchester City: the Sky Blues finally seem unstoppable with the addition of Erling Haaland.
