Haaland doubled his side's lead in the 34th minute after heading home.

He powered his way through, with Eriksen supposedly tasked to mark him.
But the decision to put the Dane on the Norwegian phenom baffled fans on social media.
Why the hell is Eriksen marking Erling Haaland on corners? This club will not kill me today.— ًE. (@UtdEIIis) October 2, 2022
Someone tell me why Eriksen is marking Haaland in the first place, makes no sense— Trey (@UTDTrey) October 2, 2022
Beyond belief why Eriksen is chosen to handle Haaland. Even with Varane off, you cannot do that. #mufc— Samuel Luckhurst (@samuelluckhurst) October 2, 2022
Eriksen marking Haaland on a corner....what a great idea that is— Mark Goldbridge (@markgoldbridge) October 2, 2022
Eriksen marking Haaland is just a bad decision even if Haaland never had a single attempt from a corner all game.— UtdArena (@UtdArena) October 2, 2022
Haaland made it 3-0 three minutes later after converting Kevin De Bruyne's cross.
Phil Foden then bagged Man City's fourth just before the break.
In the second-half, both Haaland and Foden completed their hat-tricks, with Antony and Anthony Martial (x2) scoring for Man United.
