Manchester City 6-3 Manchester United summary: Haaland hat-trick, score, goals, highlights, Premier League
Manchester City 6-3 Manchester United: as it happened
First 6-3 defeat for United since 1996
Today is only the sixth time in Manchester United history that they have lost 6-3 and the first time since they lost to Southampton away by the same scoreline in October 1996.
City run riot
The home side led 4-0 at half-time and at that stage it was damage limitation for United. They added two more in the second half to make it 6-1 before United got two more late on. Arsenal will be looking over their shoulders. Grealish, Foden and Haaland were all superb.
Nine goals in derby
It could have been even worse for United on Sunday. Martial came off the bench to score a late brace as Guardiola emptied his own bench.
City close gap at the top
City have moved to within one point of league leaders Arsenal at the top of the Premier League table.
Haaland gives Foden the match ball
Haaland and Foden both netted hat-tricks for City but Haaland gives the match ball to Foden. He knows it won't be his last hat-trick in blue!
City win the derby
Manchester City have produced a sensational display to beat their neighbours with Erling Haaland and Phil Foden hat-tricks in the Manchester derby.
FT: Manchester City 6-3 Manchester United
And there's the final whistle!
City run out 6-3 winners.
City lead 6-3 with 60 seconds remaining.
With all of City's changes, United have had a little bit of possession and a couple of efforts on goal.
Martial spins and it's a United penalty!
Antony chops onto his right foot but it's a weak effort saved by Ederson.
Fred struck a left-footed shot from out on the left. Ederson pushed it into Martial's path and the Frenchman couldn't miss.
Erling Haaland has the same number of Premier League hat-tricks as Cristiano Ronaldo, who we won't see today. He doesn't seem to be a major part of Ten Hag's plans.
Ten Hag has just won the Manager of the Month award for September but now questions will be asked of him once again. City have been unplayable.
And if you're a Fantasy football lover, Haaland has three goals and two assists today.
Foden nets a hat-trick
There hadn't been a hat-trick in the Manchester derby for 28 years, but we have had two today.
Guardiola has decided to make four changes at once.
City are about to make a host of changes as they lead 6-1.
Haaland slips in Foden, who drives it past De Gea from 12 yards. It's a super strike. Two of the best young players in world football have both scored hat-tricks.
Three home hat-tricks in a row for Haaland - something that has never been done before in the Premier League!
Antony drags his low left-footed shot wide.
Cristiano Ronaldo sits on the bench and is not best pleased, as you can imagine.
Manchester City 5-1 Manchester United
It's only the second ever Manchester derby hat-trick.
Former United winger Andrei Kanchelskis was the last player to net a hat-trick in the derby.
It's absolutely sensational from Haaland once again.
City are lethal down the left. Gómez fires a low cross into Haaland, who gets away from his man to score a hat-trick.
14 goals in 8 games for Erling Haaland!
Silva finds a pocket of space and lays it through to Haaland on the run in the inside left channel. The big Norwegian hits the side netting.
Antony had been poor before his goal but it was a superb strike from distance, one that will do his confidence no harm. City's intensity has naturally dropped.
Double change for United
OFF Marcus Rashford
ON Anthony Martial
OFF Scott Mctominay
United have one back!
The Brazilian cuts in onto his left and fires a left-footed shot past his compatriot Ederson. Could they? Surely not...
Casemiro and Ronaldo are warming up for United. A lot of the away section have already made the short trip home. They couldn't watch anymore.
First half possession:
City - 62%
United - 38%
Lindelof heads De Bruyne's corner from the left away.
United concede 4 again
Opta stat: Since the start of 2020-21, Man Utd have conceded 4+ first-half goals in four Premier League games (v Spurs in Oct 2020, Liverpool in Oct 2021, Brentford in Aug 2022, Man City today); this is twice as often as any other side in this time.
Ten Hag will likely have more changes in mind. We could possibly see former Real Madrid pair Casemiro and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Fernandes tugs a shirt and it's a free to City.
I'd imagine it wasn't Pep Guardiola's toughest half-time speech ever.
If you're just joining, City lead 4-0. It's not the first time United have been trailing 4-0 this season.
City get us underway!
Luke Shaw is warming up for Manchester United.
This is all about damage limitation for United now.
Erling Haaland at Manchester City:
- 16 goals and 2 assists in 11 games (in all competitions)
- Direct involvement in a Manchester City goal every 48 minutes
- He has needed just 23 shots on target to score those 16 goals
Some half-time reading with your cuppa, or something stronger if you're a United fan.

Rashford wins Player of the Month award
Marcus Rashford, United’s top goalscorer this season, has missed United’s last two games with a muscle injury but starts in attack today.
Rashford’s four goal involvements in September were enough for him to see off competition from the likes of City’s Kevin De Bruyne and Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg to win the Player of the Month award for September.
Kickoff at the Etihad is just 15 minutes away!

Before the pause to their league campaign, United had bounced back from a sorry start to the season to win four on the spin, a run that has lifted them to fifth in the table ahead of matchday nine.
In their most recent top-flight outing, on 6 September, Ten Hag’s men beat the Gunners 3-1 at Old Trafford, Marcus Rashford hitting a double to down the early-season pacesetters. Four days later, United’s euphoria was somewhat dampened by a home Europa League defeat to Real Sociedad, although they returned to winning ways just before the international break by beating Sheriff Tiraspol in Europe, Cristiano Ronaldo scoring his first goal of the season.
As United prepare to face City and Erling Haaland, Erik ten Hag and Lisandro Martínez know they have previous experience of keeping the Norwegian out.
Wayne Rooney is United’s all-time top goal scorer and also the highest goalscorer in the history of the Manchester derby.
In the rivalry between the two sides, the Liverpool-born forward scored 11 goals, including his memorable overhead kick at Old Trafford. Ryan Giggs is the most capped player in the derby’s history with 36 appearances.
City's midfield three this afternoon is Gundogan, De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva.

Man Utd XI
Erik ten Hag has named the following eleven for his side's short trip to the Etihad.

Man City XI
Pep Guardiola has gone with the following side for the Manchester derby.
Erling Haaland leads the line, while Ilkay Gundogan captains the home side.
Haaland: Pep is crazy about football
Speaking to Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville ahead of the game, the former Manchester United defender asked how often Erling Haaland is surprised by how Guardiola perceives football.
"For example, the day before a game he tells us what's going to happen and then the next day, exactly that happens. It's crazy, sometimes I don't understand how it's possible, but he's crazy into football - a football-holic, if you can call it that. It's crazy.
"I'm a striker so I want to be in the box as much as possible. I don't want to go out on the side - what should I do there? We have other players doing that, so this is a logical thing."
United make short trip to Etihad
The international break may have arrived at the wrong time for United, who were finding momentum under manager Erik ten Hag.
On Friday, the Dutch coach picked up the Manager of the Month award for September.
Ten Hag has managed to steady the ship at Old Trafford after a poor start to the season, with back-to-back defeats against Brighton and Bournemouth.
“I played many derbies and I know what derbies, what they are,” Ten Hag explained in Friday’s press conference.
“With rivals, what they do with each other, I think, and I know, it’s the most important game in the Manchester area for the fans. It excites me.
“You want to be involved in these games, because it gives a good vibe, it gives so much energy. You do everything to win that game.”
Since the early season defeats, United have gone on to record four wins on the bounce and will be hoping to make it five at the Etihad on Sunday.
Manchester derby 188
Today is the 188th Manchester derby between City and United and United come out on top with 77 wins.
The City camp
Manchester City take on Manchester United in the Manchester derby. Pep Guardiola’s side are currently second in the league, four points off leaders Arsenal.
City will be without key defender John Stones after he was forced off with what appeared to be a hamstring injury while playing for England against Germany during the international break.
Guardiola told reporters on Friday: “He is injured. He will be back when he is ready. I don’t know when he will come back but I think maybe 10 days, two weeks.”
City eased past United in last season’s Premier League fixtures and could beat them three times in a row for the first time since 2014.
