In the Cityzens’ 3-0 (1-0) win over Wolverhampton Wanderers, Haaland scored their fourth hat-trick of the season. The former Dortmund striker is on course for a record in the Premier League.

After Man City struggled for a long time in the first half, Haaland scored the goal for the hosts in the 40th minute. City ruled the game after the break. After a foul on Ilkay Gündogan in the penalty area, Haaland converted the penalty kick due again in the 50th minute. A few minutes later, the Norwegian made everything clear for the defending champion with his third goal (54th). After just over an hour, he was substituted to thunderous applause at the Etihad Stadium.

Incredible goal rate

The previous record of the ex-Dortmunder in England is breathtaking. Haaland has featured in 19 of 20 league games for Man City this season, scoring 25 goals. Last season, the Premier League’s two top scorers, Mohamed Salah and Heung-min Son, each scored 23 goals in 38 games. Also, no player has managed to hit four hat-tricks in such a short amount of time before. Only Alan Shearer has scored three goals in one game more often – five times – in a single season.

Manchester City continued to put pressure on leaders Arsenal with a comfortable win. The Cityzens were just two points behind the leaders before the game between Arsenal and Manchester United kicked off late in the afternoon.
