Man City dominates derby with 3-0 victory over United at Old Trafford

Published




In a commanding display, Manchester City maintained their supremacy in the city with a resounding 3-0 win over arch-rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford.

The Premier League champions seized control as Erling Haaland converted a VAR-awarded penalty, scored his second with a header, and played a pivotal role in Phil Foden’s goal to seal the victory.

Erling Haaland, the Norwegian forward, was the star of the show, opening the scoring by confidently dispatching the penalty after VAR intervened, ruling that Rasmus Hojlund had fouled Rodri in the crowded United penalty area.

Haaland extended City’s lead with his 11th league goal of the season, heading home a precise cross from Bernardo Silva following a rapid attacking move.

The Manchester United goalkeeper, André Onana, made a remarkable save in the first half, denying Haaland a second goal with a powerful header, and also thwarted Phil Foden’s header.

However, he couldn’t prevent Phil Foden from capitalizing on a setup by Haaland for City’s third goal.

With this victory, Manchester City climbs to third place in the Premier League, trailing leaders Tottenham by just two points, while Manchester United currently sits eighth in the table with 15 points.
