Man City 6-3 Man Utd: Hat-tricks From Erling Haaland And Phil Foden Made The Reigning Premier League Champions Victorious

Manchester United were trounced 6-3 by Manchester City today in the Premier League at the Etihad Stadium.

They were 4-0 down at half-time and all that stopped it becoming ten was that the match was by then over and modern players need to conserve energy in this of all seasons. So City no longer floored the accelerator and Manchester United achieved a measure of respectability. Unless you saw the game, of course. Witnesses will confirm that this was a battering not a battle royal and United look as far behind their neighbours as they have at any time since they were in separate divisions.

As for Haaland and Foden, having entered the second-half on two apiece, both got a third to confirm the gulf between these so-called rivals. Double hat-tricks are rare, just two previously in Premier League history. Jermaine Pennant and Robert Pires in a 6-1 win for Arsenal over Southampton in May 2003.
