Manchester City’s Erling Haaland became the first player to score three consecutive Premier League home hat-tricks as Manchester United were humiliated in the derby at the Etihad Stadium.

Haaland’s rampage this season continued as he hit 17 goals in 10 games since his move from Borussia Dortmund and Phil Foden also scored a treble as City closed the gap on pacesetters Arsenal to a point.

This was a brutal reality check for United after their recent improvement as the reigning Premier League champions ran riot to illustrate the class gulf between the teams.

City’s lightning start was rewarded when Foden swept home Bernardo Silva’s cross after eight minutes before Haaland inevitably joined the fray with a header from a corner 11 minutes before the break.

As United fell behind, Haaland slid in a third from Kevin de Bruyne’s perfect pass and then turned provider to set up a simple finish for Foden before the break.

United’s new signing Antony hit a stunning goal from 25 yards to pull one back, but that only provoked City to up the tempo again, Haaland tapping home his third from Sergio Gomez’s cross and again showing he can be the creator by setting Foot up for City’s sixth.

Haaland’s third put him in the record books after hat-tricks at home against Nottingham Forest and Crystal Palace.

Anthony Martial’s late goal for United was met with near silence, as was his stoppage-time penalty, on a day of embarrassment for United and manager Erik ten Hag and a day of excitement for City and Pep Guardiola.
