Premier League: 3-0 at United: Haaland decides the Manchester derby

City's superstar Erling Haaland has won the 191st Manchester derby against local rivals United.

The Norwegian national soccer player scored two goals and an assist to give coach Pep Guardiola's team a clear 3-0 (1-0) victory over the Red Devils. Champions City are in third place in the English Premier League, United remain eighth.

The Cityzens once again showed their superiority. But it was only a penalty after a hold on Rodri that gave them the lead. Haaland sank confidently. Coach Erik ten Haag's hosts had their best opportunity in stoppage time in the first half: Scott McTominay was denied by goalkeeper Ederson. United keeper André Onana made a brilliant save from Haaland a short time later.

In the second half, Onana had no chance: Haaland easily headed in after a perfect pass from Bernardo Silva. The ex-Bundesliga professional was also involved in the third goal. After the City professionals were able to pass the ball to each other for almost three minutes, Phil Foden pushed a pass from Haaland over the line to make it 3-0 (80th).

Before the match, both clubs remembered football icon Sir Bobby Charlton, who died last Saturday at the age of 86. “The best English footballer the world has ever seen” read a large banner at Old Trafford. Charlton played for Manchester United in 758 competitive games from 1956 to 1973 and scored 249 goals.
