Erling Haaland scores hat-trick to reach 25 Premier League goals in 19 games
| Last updated
Erling Haaland now has 25 goals in the Premier League this season after notching a hat-trick for Manchester City against Wolves.
After ending a mini-drought in a comeback win over Spurs on Thursday, Haaland opened the scoring with a devastating header from a sublime Kevin De Bruyne cross in the 40th minute.
He then doubled his tally early on in the second half with a cool penalty after Ilkay Gundogan was fouled by Wolves skipper Ruben Neves.
A gift from Jose Sa allowed Riyad Mahrez to put the ball on a plate for Haaland to score a fourth hat-trick in the league this term and a 16th in his career on the whole.
And the Norwegian sensation has reached a quarter of a century in the Premier League when it comes to goals - with his tally two more than what joint Golden Boot winners Mo Salah and Heung-Min Son managed last term.
In fact, Haaland would have already won the Golden Boot for the past four seasons.
Frighteningly, there are still 18 more games in the Premier League for Haaland to continue his ridiculous goalscoring form.
After another clinical display to secure a match-ball, Haaland made way for Argentina World Cup winner Julian Alvarez just before the hour mark at the Etihad Stadium.

THIS GUY WIPES HIS ASS WITH GOALS
Haaland has already broken a slew of Premier League records in such a short space of time and Alan Shearer, the division's all-time top scorer with 260 goals, fears he could knock him off his perch.
“I think if he does stick around and does stay fit then I do think he’ll have a chance," Shearer told SPORTbible.
"But I think Harry Kane might have something to say about that because he might have already broken it by then.
“I know how desperate he is to try and break it himself so I might not be the one he’s chasing, it might be someone different.”
