Manchester City ran riot on derby day as both Erling Haaland and Phil Foden scored hat-tricks as rivals Manchester United were blown away.

Erling Haaland and Phil Foden both scored twice before half-time, prompting waves of away support to leave the Etihad Stadium at half-time, and it got worse from there.

Antony gave United fans, the ones remaining, brief with a stunning 25-yard finish past Ederson, but that only served to wake City back up and Haaland and Foden sealed their trebles within minutes.

Martial added another consolation five minutes from time, and then another from the penalty spot in the final minute, but this will go down as another dark day for the red half of Manchester.

Foden got the scoring underway inside eight minutes, sweeping home Bernardo Silva's low cross, before Haaland headed his first in the 34th minute to put City in command.

Haaland has made a mockery of settling into life in the Premier League and the Norwegian struck again in the 34th minute on the stretch before Foden added the fourth three minutes later.

Big-money signing Antony curled a stunning strike into the net early in the second half to give United faint hope of a remarkable comeback, before Haaland fired home his 17th goal of an incredible season to notch up his third hat-trick in eight Premier League games.

Foden completed his first Premier League treble to finish off the perfect afternoon for irresistible City, before United substitute Anthony Martial added a late consolation double to make the scoreline more respectable.

Pep Guardiola's side moved to within a point of Arsenal at the top of the standings and a bruised United stayed sixth.
