The Norway international was the star of the Manchester derby as he contributed three goals and two assists in the Red Devils’ obliteration

Erling Haaland has turned the Premier League into a Farmer’s League, some fans have reacted following his breath-taking performance as Manchester City overpowered Manchester United 6-3 on Sunday.

The Norway international not only got a hat-trick in the nine-goal thriller, but records also tumbled for him – one of which saw him become the first player in English top-flight history to score a hat-trick in three consecutive home games in the competition.

Although Haaland was the talking point, others queried why super-sub Anthony Martial was not handed a starter’s role for United.

Not left out of this discourse is Cristiano Ronaldo, who a few suggested should think about quitting the beautiful game as he is being underutilized at Old Trafford.

Interestingly, this was the first time that the Citizens scored six goals in a home game against Manchester United in all competitions

    Farmers League

    Haaland is a very good goal scorer.  The world shouldn't have allowed him to play in a Pep team. It's criminal. He's going to get 100 goals a season. EPL is a farmers league after all - @IamAfeez.

    Haaland turning the premier league into a farmer's league is not being talked about enough. - @SA_Adebola.
