Erling Haaland, a striker for Manchester City, broke a new record by scoring his fourth hat-trick of the year in a Premier League encounter against wolves.

The Norwegian behemoth broke the record of Ruud van Nistelrooy who took 65 appearances to score four EPL hattricks. Haaland, meanwhile has taken just 19 matches to achieve that feat.

He also surpassed former Manchester United player Cristiano Ronaldo’s hattrick tally (3) and is on level terms with Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah who also has 4 hattricks.

City dominated the first half and deservedly took the lead after Haaland headed home from a pinpoint cross from Kevin De Bruyne in the 40th minute.

It was a matter of time until City got that crucial second goal, with Haaland converting from the spot following a foul on Ilkay Gundogan five minutes after the break. The Norwegian then quickly completed his treble to put the game to bed.

Haaland’s previous three hattricks in the league came against Manchester United (Home), Nottingham Forest (Home), and Crystal Palace (Home). The player is also one hattrick away from equalling most hattricks in a Premier League season, as Alan Shearer scored 5 in the 1995-96 season.
