How it happened

Manchester United came into this game looking to continue their recent winning run, despite their awful performances but City opened the scoring instead.

Haaland stepped up to the spot and City’s talismanic striker confidently rolled the ball into the bottom-right corner for his 10th PL goal of the season. 

The frantic nature of the contest continued up until halftime, as McTominay saw a fierce strike superbly thwarted by Ederson, before Onana came to United’s rescue again, denying Haaland his second of the afternoon with a flying save.

The visitors carried their momentum into the early stages of the second half, and having failed to double his tally before the break, Haaland made no mistake in the 49th minute, heading home from Bernardo Silva’s perfectly weighted delivery to extend City’s lead.

The visitors added a late third through Phil Foden after unselfish play from Haaland, securing three richly deserved points.
