Erling Haaland may have put Manchester United to the sword but he wasn’t the only Man City star breaking records. Phil Foden has been on the scene for so long it’s easy to forget he’s just 22 years old – and he was in delightful form, scoring a hat-trick in the 6-3 victory.

The Barcelona and Argentina icon, now at Paris Saint-Germain, thrilled under the tutelage of Pep Guardiola early on in his career. He managed to score 50 goals under the Spanish boss by the age of 22 years and 164 days. Foden, though, has smashed that with his treble, reaching 50 goals under Guardiola with his second strike of the day. He managed to net his half-century by the age of 22 years and 127 days The England international was in scintilating form on the day, combining delightfully with Haaland, who assisted his final two goals and got a treble of his own.
