though. Joao Cancelo played a ball across the box and Phil Foden slotted in unmarked.

Man City continued to cause United issues and would make it 2-0 after 34 minutes. Kevin De Bruyne whipped in a corner,

which Erling Haaland headed in.

The Norweigan then turned provider,


crossing to Foden for his second goal of the game.

Man United started the second 45 better and got a goal back after 55 minutes with a wonder strike from Antony.

completing his hat-trick 64 minutes in. City were not done there, though,

First Half

United kicked the derby off,


and almost instantly Diogo Dalot was issued a yellow card for a foul on Jack Grealish,

that saw a David de Gea save coupled my multiple blocked shots thanks to Scott McTominay on his goal,

however the score remained level.

However it did not take long for City to find their lead,

with Phil Foden slotting in a low cut back from Bernardo Silva behind De Gea.

Basically United’s front pressure attempted to disrupt City’s back line and a half-chance fell to Marcus Rashford with Ederson losing possession,

however he could not find his feet and the moment was lost. City continued to apply pressure,

with Ilkay Gundogan hitting the post with a free-kick and another Foden shot flying just too high,

and by 20 minutes, the men in blue were in complete control of the tie.

United’s other full back, Tyrell Malacia,

then was handed a yellow card for a foul on aforementioned Englishman,

which understandably sent alarm bells ringing.

It took until 33 minutes for the second goal to go in,

with it being scored by the man in form,

Erling Haaland. Despite a great effort effort from Malacia to keep the ball out,

goal-line technology judged Haaland’s towering header from a corner to have crossed the line.

Towards the end of the first half Raphael Varane

was replaced by Victor Lindelof due to injury.

Manchester United’s return to action was one to forget for Erik ten Hag’s men as they fell to a resolute 6-3 defeat to local rivals Manchester City.

While the first half score line suggested a poor performance from United,

it was more a case of Reds players failing to stand out compared to their light blue counterparts.

A hat-trick each for Erling Haaland and Phil Foden gave Manchester City a 6-3

 win against Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

It was a ruthless performance from the Premier League champions,

who were four goals up at half-time after tearing United apart time and again with their pass and move football.
