Already a triple scorer against Crystal Palace (4-2) on Saturday, Manchester City striker Erling Håland has once again scored a hat-trick against Nottingham Forest (6-0) on Wednesday in the Premier League. The Norwegian striker is well on his way to breaking all records across the Channel.
Erling Håland (22) has only one enemy: Erling Håland. More precisely, his body. Because in his head, the Norwegian striker already has what it takes to make a great career. If he wants to make history, the Norwegian striker will have to be spared from physical problems, as he suffered a long hip injury for many weeks last season. One thing is certain: if he keeps on going, nothing and nobody will stop him.
Aguero’s record did not stand.
After facing some criticism after his failure in the Community Shield lost to Liverpool (1-3), the Manchester City center-forward has already forced his detractors to hide in the shadows. In five Premier League games, the Nordic has already scored … 9 times. In history, no player has done better. The previous record belonged to Sergio Aguero, who found the net 8 times in his first 5 games in the English league. Like his glorious predecessor, Håland started with a brace (against West Ham, 2-0), before remaining silent in his second game (against Bournemouth, 4-0). He then followed, like Kun, with a double (at Newcastle, 3-3) and then with a hat-trick in his fourth game (against Crystal Palace, 4-2). Identical beginnings until the fifth game, in which Håland stuck a hat-trick, against two goals for Agüero, against Nottingham Forest (6-0), Wednesday.
Håland sets the record straight
With this second consecutive hat-trick, the Scandinavian has made a further impression. In comparison, players like Riyad Mahrez (9th season), Heung-min Son (8th season), Roberto Firmino (8th season), Sadio Mané (8 seasons), Gareth Bale (7 seasons), Eden Hazard (7 seasons) and Alexis Sanchez (6 seasons) have all scored as many hat-tricks as the young Mancunian, who has only appeared 5 times. This shows the huge margin he has. What’s next? England’s defences will have to come up with a solution. Because at this rate, Håland is well on his way to breaking Mohamed Salah’s record of 32 goals in 36 Premier League games in 2017-2018. If he continues on his current path, and no one knows if Håland is not capable of doing so in Pep Guardiola’s war machine, the Pharaoh could be beaten even before the start of spring…,
