City created a host of chances in a completely dominant first-half display and led 3-0 at the break through strikes from Phil Foden, Jack Grealish and Kevin De Bruyne.

The onslaught continued after the break and Riyad Mahrez bagged City's fourth before De Bruyne rifled home a rocket to bring up the nap hand.

Despite a tremendous double save from Illan Meslier, John Stones then made it 6-0 with 16 minutes left and Nathan Ake headed home City's seventh just four minutes later.

Graham Smyth, the YEP's chief football writer, hands out the scores from United's heaviest ever Premier League defeat.
