'Incredible Haaland': Reaction to Manchester City's thumping of Manchester United
(MENAFN) Manchester City was at its dominant best as it cruised to a 6-3 triumph over rivals Manchester United in the opening Manchester derby of the season.
Erling Haaland scored his third hattrick in as many home games, while City academy product Phil Foden added three of his own for his first hattrick of the season.
Only three times in Premier League history have two players from the same side scored hattricks.
While Anthony Martial's lightning brace at the conclusion of the game saved United's face, the result belied City's dominance throughout the 90-minute period.
Following a run of four straight league victories, there was quiet optimism growing at United ahead of the derby. However, the class divide between the two sides was on full display on Sunday.
