Haaland overjoyed with 'amazing' victory over United
Erling Haaland was left ecstatic after netting a treble to help City to a 6-3 Premier League victory in the 188th Manchester Derby.

The striker made history as he became the first ever player to score three successive home Premier League hat-tricks as he has netted three trebles after just eight league games.


Haaland had a hand in five of our six goals in the win, adding two assists to his three goals, which is the most goal involvements by a player in a single Premier League Manchester Derby.

Phil Foden also netted a treble during the 6-3 victory and our number nine was delighted with the win and performance.

"Yeah, not bad! We scored six goals, what can you say?

"It’s amazing, to win at home and score six goals, yeah, it’s nice.

"I felt it a little bit before the game that something special is going to happen and we saw today that some special things happened. It was nice.

"On Friday I felt it in the whole training ground. It's these games I want to play in. These are the best games where there's a bit extra."

The Norwegian has 17 goals across all competitions this season, the most from any player in Europe's top five leagues.

The striker believes that the playing style of Pep Guardiola's men is a huge part of his success.

"You can feel it all the time, you see the passes we give each other, we always want to go forward and we always want to attack.


"This is what I love about this team. In the end it’s amazing.

"Confidence is good, it's always been good. After we played against Liverpool in the Community Shield it was still good after. I think it was good that match happened, that something happened and [I thought] I have to be a bit more ready."

"We get one ball each, one for the first half and one for the second half!"
