Erling Haaland stats: Forward’s rampant performance for Manchester City

Manchester City superstar Erling Haaland is back to his devastating best as the Norwegian striker scored a poker during the Cityzen’s clash against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday, May 4. The defending champions are currently winning the Premier League clash by a score of 4-1. Haaland has scored all four of Manchester City’s goals at the Etihad.

He opened the scoring with a 12th-minute penalty before making it 2-0 in the 35th minute. Yet another penalty in the injury time of the first half (45+3′) helped City take a 3-0 lead at the break. Haaland also completed a first-half hat-trick and has now netted 21 career hat-tricks. To put his incredible record into context, the towering forward is still only 23.

While Hwang Hee-Chan got one back for Wolves with his 53rd-minute strike, Haaland restored the three-goal cushion a minute later, scoring his fourth of the game. He has now scored 36 goals in 41 appearances across competitions this season. Haaland has scored 25 Premier League goals in 28 appearances this term.

Erling Haaland has now scored six hat-tricks in the Premier League in 63 appearances. His tally is more than Premier League legends like Ruud van Nistelrooy, Robin van Persie, Andy Cole, and Dimitar Berbatov. All of these iconic strikers scored five hat-tricks in the English top-flight.

In modern football, scoring goals is the most important thing to do and often the most difficult task. A striker like Haaland makes it look super easy. While the Norwegian’s contribution to the team’s build-up play has often been under scrutiny, few players, if any, in world football can find the back of the net as regularly as him.
