How Man City dismantled Man Utd at Old Trafford


Erling Haaland scored twice as Manchester City humiliated Manchester United 3-0 at Old Trafford in a mismatched Manchester derby.

City dismantled United, outclassed them in every department.

Rasmus Hojlund’s foul led to Erling Haaland giving City the lead from the penalty spot in the first half.

A bullet header from Haaland and a tap-in for Phil Foden completed a miserable afternoon for the Red Devils

At 80 minutes, when Phil Foden bundled home City’s third goal from close range, after Haaland’s unselfish pass, there was a mass walkout of home fans, some turning angrily to the United directors’ box to shout “sort it out”.

“Old Trafford is falling down,” chanted the gleeful City fans.

Pep Guardiola’s side continued their domination of their old rivals, particularly at Old Trafford, where United have now won just three of the last 13 meetings with City in the Premier League.

“It was hard to watch,” said the former United defender Jaap Stam, on media pundit duties, several times.

United, with five defeats in their opening 10 fixtures of the Premier League campaign, are now nine points behind their rivals, and a world away in terms of their ability to compete for the championship.

The result moves Man City level on points with Arsenal in second as they continue their pursuit of a fourth consecutive Premier League title.

United will be desperate to bounce back against Newcastle United in the EFL Cup in midweek after losing five of their opening 10 Premier League games.
