Fresh off the back of winning the Barclays Premier League Manager of the Month award for September, Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag takes his team to the Etihad Stadium for his first ever Manchester derby this afternoon.

Manchester City started the gameweek in second place, just one point behind league leaders Arsenal, but following the Gunners victory yesterday Pep Guardiola’s men will need to pick up three points just to maintain the pace with the London club. Luckily for City fans, Guardiola’s men are unbeaten in the league so far this term and most recently swept past Wolves with a 3-0 away win just before the international break putting them in fine touch for a Manchester derby.

Meanwhile, Ten Hag’s award win gives you an indication of how he’s managed to turnaround Manchester United’s own form. The Red Devils have won their last four league games in a row including a victory over Liverpool and beating Arsenal 3-1 in their last domestic outing. Yet City away is always a tricky affair and it will be the Dutchman’s finest victory so far if he can help United can pull it off.

Follow all the action from the Manchester derby:

Erling Haaland (2) is now the top Norwegian scorer in Manchester derbies in the top-flight. Ole Gunnar Solkjaer netted once for United.

He scored his 12th and 13th Premier League goal of the season, in his eighth appearance – a record for most goals after the first eight games.

Can he become the first player to score three successive hat-tricks in home matches in the Premier League?

Half-time: Man City 4-0 Man Utd

45 mins: Two goals for Erling Haaland, two for Phil Foden and four for Manchester City sees them skip into the break with the most comfortable leads possible.

It is the second time this season that Man Utd have been four goals down at the halfway stage of a Premier League match. The difference is that they were woeful against Brentford earlier this year and Manchester City have been world class at the Etihad today.

GOAL! Man City 4-0 Man Utd (Foden, 44’)⚽️

44 mins: Four! Incredible work from Manchester City who have demolished United in this first half. Kevin De Bruyne sweeps forward on the counter attack and slides the ball over to Erling Haaland on the left before getting brought down.

Haaland only has Phil Foden as support and he’s on the opposite side of the penalty area. Still, the striker laces the ball across to him and Foden squeezes ahead of Tyrell Malacia before fizzing his shot into the back of the net!

40 mins: Raphael Varane stayed down a few minutes ago after blocking a Phil Foden shot and seems to have tweaked his recurring ankle injury. He’s motioned to the bench and Victor Lindelof is introduced to replace him five minutes before half-time.
