Erling Haaland and Phil Foden BOTH score hat-tricks in a brutal show of strength from City, an echo the Old Trafford 1-6 thrashing from 11 years ago.
In a highly scintilating and adrenaline driven game, Eric Ten Harg’s side stood no chance against the force that is Foden’s 8th minute goal. The English wonderkid would reprise the same tactic two more times to share the coveted hatrick with the Norwegian talisman, Erling Haaland.
However, Manchester United, fortunately, has not walked out Etihad stadium empty handed. Thanks to the Brazilian golden boy, Antony’S, 56th minute goal, and the French man, Anthony Martial’s 84th and 90+1 goals, cementing the 6-3 loss.
Ten Harg’s loss against Gurdiola today now forces the recent coach of month back to the drawing board as bids to fortify the side he recenty inherited from Ole Gunnar Solksjar.
The win now places City only 1 point behind the League leaders Arsenal.
