Erling Haaland and Phil Foden both struck hat tricks as Manchester City routed rivals Manchester United in an emphatic 6-3 victory on Sunday to remain unbeaten in the Premier League.
City raced into a commanding four-goal lead in the first half at the Etihad, starting with a Foden strike on eight minutes before Haaland netted a quick-fire double, with Foden adding a further goal on the stroke of half-time.

United clawed a goal back through a stunning left-footed strike from Antony — his second goal in as many Premier League games for the club — but Haaland completed his hat trick shortly after, with Foden adding a third of his own on 73 minutes.
Haaland becomes the first player in Premier League history to score a hat trick in three consecutive home games.
United striker Anthony Martial struck a pair of late consolation goals in the final 10 minutes of the match — first heading in a rebound, the second from the penalty spot — but could not cut the deficit enough to trouble City in a resounding Manchester derby victory.
Sunday’s result means City move back to within one point of leaders Arsenal.
