  • Man Utd host City in Premier League
  • Home fans taunt Erling Haaland
  • Also chant for Roy Keane

WHAT HAPPENED? Man City striker Haaland was taunted by United fans during the derby at Old Trafford on Saturday. "Haaland, Haaland, how's your dad?" sang home fans in the first half, quickly following up the chant with chants of "Keano, Keano."

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Haaland senior was on the receiving end of a horrendous foul by Keane when the two sides met all the way back in April 2001. Keane was shown a straight red card but chose to bend over the stricken Man City defender and delivered a few choice words on his way off the pitch. It has been suggested the horror challenge ended Haaland's career, but he did finish the game and went on to play for Norway four days later.
