Manchester is blue - and that won't be changing anytime soon! Winners and losers as City stars Erling Haaland and Bernardo Silva destroy United on derby day

Manchester is blue. It has been for some time, and on Sunday's evidence, it will remain so for quite a while yet. City's 3-0 win over United at Old Trafford was even more dominant than the scoreline suggests, as Pep Guardiola's side yet again waltzed their way through a derby without having to really break sweat.

City actually lost on their last visit to 'The Theatre of Dreams', but United have fallen off a cliff since then, as Erik ten Hag struggles to inspire much confidence with the way his team is playing at present. They are already nine points behind City, 11 points off Premier League leaders Tottenham and eight points in arrears to fourth-placed Liverpool with only 10 games of the season played.

Still, many would have expected United to get up for the visit of their neighbours, but despite a couple of exciting counter-attacking moments, they barely laid a glove on City. Instead, the visitors were in cruise control as soon as Erling Haaland fired them ahead from the penalty spot after 26 minutes.

Haaland could have had as many as five goals on the day if not for the saves of Andre Onana, but he did at least find a second shortly after half-time after heading in a floated cross from the brilliant Bernardo Silva. Phil Foden then added a third from a Haaland assist, while the Mancunian on the other side, Marcus Rashford, endured yet another miserable outing in what is quickly becoming a forgettable season for the United forward.
