Nine goals in five games, Haaland already explodes Premier League records

And three that make nine. Not too bad, in just five games played. Bought this summer for 62 million euros – really a straw when you see the sums paid in this transfer window in England – Erling Haaland did not need time to adapt to confirm his status as a scoring machine at Manchester City . By scoring a second straight hat-trick on Wednesday night on Matchday 5 against Nottingham Forest, the Norwegian set two new Premier League records.

The 22-year-old former Borussia Dortmund striker became the fastest player to score two hat-tricks in the English Premier League, largely wiping out the previous mark set by Demba Ba (21 games). Above all, he has already brought his total to nine goals in his first five games, one more than Sergio Agüero, already in the City jersey, and Mick Quinn with Newcastle.

“It was great, there is nothing else to say”, judged the player at the microphone of BT Sports at the end of the match, finally won 6-0 by his team, with a goal from Joao Cancelo and a brace from Julian Alvarez, another summer recruit. City are second in the standings with 13 points after five rounds, two behind Arsenal who have won their first five games.

“The idea was to keep doing what we did in the second half against (Crystal) Palace, just play, play, play and we knew we would have chances. That’s exactly what we did and so, yeah, that was nice,” he continued. Haaland had already scored three goals in 19 minutes in the wild comeback against Crystal Palace who led 2-0 before losing 4-2 on Saturday.

” It’s gonna be fun “

This time, he offered himself a hat-trick by scoring in the 12th, 23rd and 38th minutes to allow his side to lead 3-0 at the break against the promoted. The goals were certainly not very complicated, but he did exactly what he was recruited for and his statistics, in an English league considered to be much higher than the Bundesliga where he had shone with Dortmund ( 62 goals in 67 games), are already maddening.

“I try to listen to Pep (Guardiola) as much as possible and combine with the guys because they are incredible footballers and without them I wouldn’t be able to score goals, he continued when asked about its canon debut. That’s why I came here. You can see, we’re playing so well, we feel good and we’re going to get even better. So that’s gonna be fun. “Not sure that the English defenders are of the same opinion.
