Erling Haaland scored his 4th hat-trick of the season on Sunday against Wolverhampton (3-0), and already has 25 Premier League goals.
But where will it stop? Erling Haaland is now at 25 goals at mid-season in the Premier League, after scoring another hat-trick, his 4th of the season, in the victory of Manchester City against Wolverhampton (3-0), this Sunday afternoon on behalf of the 21st day of the championship.
Never seen !
The 22-year-old striker’s stats are still more astounding. Haaland exceeds – already – the score of Mohamed Salah and Son Heung-Min last season (23 goals). He has scored more than 9 teams in the championship, including Chelsea (22 goals)! And he became the first player in PL history to post 25 goals in his first 19 games. Just that.
The Norwegian cyborg opened the scoring before half-time, with a header from a cross from Kevin de Bruyne (40th). Then he took advantage of a generous penalty given for a small fault on Ilkay Gündogan (50th) and an offering from Riyad Mahrez (54th). Pep Guardiola replaced him in stride by Julio Alvarez (61st).
Man City is temporarily 2 points behind Arsenal, who receive Manchester United in stride at the Emirates Stadium (and who will still have one game less at the end of the weekend). The Cityzens play their next league game in two weeks, against Tottenham, in North London.
