EPL: Foden double helps Man City fight back to win derby


it is business as usual as City claim Manchester bragging rights with a 3-1 victory over United at the Etihad.

This historic Premier League derby was turned on its head after just eight minutes, though, as Rashford who hit back at critics over his work rate in midweek crashed in a rocketed opener off the underside of Ederson’s bar.

Guardiola’s hosts came roaring back but remained behind at the break, with Haaland producing one of the misses of the season on the stroke of half-time when lofting over Onana’s target from point-blank rage.

Yet that Red Devils resistance would not last forever, with Foden arrowing a fine equaliser in similar fashion to Rashford’s opener, before doubling his account in the 80th minute to put the hosts ahead.

There was still time for Haaland’s redemption, too, with the Norway talisman sealing all three points and keeping the reigning champions just a point behind the league-leading Liverpool.

City visit Liverpool at Anfield next Sunday after a midweek Champions League last-16 second-leg clash with Copenhagen, while United who stay sixth and 11 points behind fourth-placed Aston Villa host Everton the day before.
