Erling Haaland continues to break all records.
In the 6:3 (4:0) victory in the city derby against Manchester United, the Norwegian scored 2:0 (34th minute), 3:0 (37th) and 5:1 (64th) himself and put Phil Foden the 4: 0 (44th) and the 6: 1 (71st).
Only in the early 1-0 by Foden (8th) did the Norwegian not have his feet in the game.
The goals of Antony to 1: 4 (56th), Anthony Martial to 2: 6 (84th) and again Martial with a penalty (90+1st) did not change the dominance of the city.
For Haaland it is the third home game with a three-pack in a row.
Haaland now has 14 goals after eight Premier League games.
While the Citizens stay close to leaders Arsenal London with the clear victory, Manchester United slipped to sixth place in the Premier League table.
Manchester City put United under pressure from the start.
After preliminary work by Berndardo Silva, the completely free-standing Foden scored the early 1-0 (8th).
After that, Manchester United came into play a little bit.
Without Cristiano Ronaldo, who was once again not considered for the first eleven, an executor was missing up front.
Manchester City has one in their squad.
With his first good move, he headed the 2-0 (34th) after a corner.
After a remarkable cross from Kevin de Bruyne, he made it 3-0 (37th).
Before the break, the ball reached Haaland via de Bruyne, who put it across to Foden.
The game was finally decided (44th).
In between, Pep Guardiola's team left good chances, a free kick from İlkay Gündoğan, for example, hit the post (18').
In the second half things continued as usual, Haaland and Foden did what they wanted.
After a goal by Antony (56th), Haaland increased the lead to 5: 1 (64th).
After that, the Norwegian still didn't have enough and cleverly put the ball through to Foden, who scored his third goal (72').
Manchester United's Anthony Martial scored the final point with a header (84') and a penalty kick (90+1').
Most United fans had long since left the stadium.
