Premier League Superb Foden double sinks United in Manchester derby

Phil Foden scored two stunning goals as Manchester City recovered from a goal down to beat Manchester United 3-1 on Saturday.

City had fallen behind to a thunderous Marcus Rashford goal with only eight minutes played – against the run of play – and spent the next 50 minutes or so trying to find a way past a resolute United back-line.

But Foden levelled on 56 minutes with a screamer into the top corner from 20 yards, then scored a delightful second ten minutes from the end of normal time.

Erling Haaland wrapped up victory with a clinical finish following excellent work by Rodrigo to make it 3-1 in added time as the Blues moved within a point of leaders Liverpool. City started like an express train with total domination of the opening minutes.

There was an early shout for a penalty as Casemiro clashed with John Stones, but nothing was given with United clinging on. But as sometimes happens, the team taking a bit of pummelling then go up the other end and score with their first shot on target.
