Man City defeats Manchester United 6-3 thanks to hat tricks from Erling Haaland and Phil Foden.
Manchester City defeated rivals Manchester United 6-3 on Sunday to remain unbeaten in the Premier League. Erling Haaland and Phil Foden both scored hat tricks.
City raced into a four-goal lead in the first half at the Etihad, beginning with a Foden strike on eight minutes before Haaland netted a quick double, with Foden adding another goal on the stroke of halftime.
United pulled one back through Antony's stunning left-footed strike, his second in as many Premier League games for the club, but Haaland completed his hat trick shortly after, with Foden adding a third on 73 minutes.
Haaland becomes the first player in Premier League history to score three hat tricks in a row at home.
United striker Anthony Martial scored two late consolation goals in the final 10 minutes of the game, the first from a rebound and the second from the penalty spot, but it was not enough to trouble City in a resounding Manchester derby victory.
With Sunday's result, City has closed the gap on leaders Arsenal to one point.
