Erling Haaland scored his second consecutive hat-trick, and Man City crushed Nottingham Forest in a 6-0 win on Wednesday in the Premier League. Erling Haaland continued a blistering start to his career at Manchester City with a hat-trick within 38 minutes as Premier League champions swept newly promoted Nottingham Forest. Erling Haaland has scored a League record nine goals in five games since joining City from Borussia Dortmund and has now made it back-to-back hat-tricks, having scored three in Saturday’s victory against Crystal Palace. Erling Haaland scored an exciting triple when City came from 2-0 down to beat Crystal Palace 4-2 last weekend but made it look like a straightforward affair by scoring a perfect hat-trick from left-foot, right-foot and header inside 38 minutes against Nottingham Forest.
Erling Haaland’s nine goals in his first five Premier League matches is a new competition record, beating both Micky Quinn and City’s all-time leading scorer Sergio Aguero’s eight. Pep Guardiola showed a bit of kindness towards Nottingham Forest when he pulled off Erling Haaland in the 69th minute but did bring on Kevin De Bruyne, who looked to tighten up things while City pushed for more goals.
Sergio is the legend, Pep Guardiola said with joy. Nobody will ever be able to overturn City supporters’ devotion once they score the most significant goal in the team’s recent history. Erling possesses the potential to be there. Sergio accomplished a remarkable feat. But Erling possesses this skill. I hope he can have fun and continue to score goals. Haaland’s show was the most recent example of how he gives City a unique, frightening aspect. Haaland was racing into channels to seize the ball and spin defenders around, clearly indicating that he and City wanted more. They, therefore, hit a fourth. Silva moved inside before passing the ball to Joo Cancelo, who had 20 yards to position himself before shooting into the top corner.
In the other matches played the same evening, Arsenal is enjoying the perfect start to their new campaign with five wins out of five games. Both the Brazilian scoring for the Gunners, as Gabriel Jesus opened the scoreline for them in the 30th minute, with the winner from Gabriel Martinelli following in the 77th minute. West Ham held Spurs in a 1-1 draw, where Spurs saw five yellow cards in a single match. Liverpool won at Anfield in a very controversial manner, which is expected there as Fabio Carvalho scored the winner in the 98th minute even though only five minutes were added in injury time. Tonight Leicester City plays Manchester United and hopes to move upward the table for once this season. After drawing their first game against Brentford, they lost the next three matches.
