Erling Haaland makes history with five goals for Man City against Luton Town

Erling Haaland makes history with five goals for Man City against Luton Town

He made history.

Erling Haaland made history for Manchester City on Tuesday night after scoring five goals against Luton Town.

Haaland delivered an emphatic warning to City’s Premier League rivals with his five-goal haul in City’s 6-2 win at Luton in the FA Cup.

The Norway international had recently returned after two months out with a foot injury and had initially taken time to work his way back to full fitness. However, he now believes he is ready to spearhead City to another treble push.

"It's coming, we're coming," Haaland told ITV. "My fitness? I am getting back to my best. Finally, I am feeling good. It's an amazing feeling. Exciting times ahead. We are ready to attack."

Against Luton the 23-year-old made history by becoming the first City player to score five goals in a game more than once. He also became the first City player since Frank Roberts in an 11-4 thrashing of Crystal Palace in 1926 to score five goals in an FA Cup game.

Haaland has broken several records since arriving at the Etihad Stadium in 2022 while netting 30 more goals than any other Premier League striker in that time.

Four of Haaland's five goals at Luton were assisted by Kevin De Bruyne with the duo becoming among the most fearsome partnerships in world football.

"Kevin de Bruyne is massive. He is doing what he is best at. It's a pleasure playing with him," Haaland said.

"We know what we both want from each other. It clicks well. He is a smart player and I like to play with him."

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola added after the match: "Erling is on fire and Kevin... the connection was perfect. Kevin needs players like Erling and Erling needs players like Kevin.

"Erling needs a guy with the vision, the quality, the generosity. Kevin is the less selfish player in front of goal. Kevin needs the movement from Erling. We know how aggressive they are."
