Erling Haaland scores quadruple for Manchester City’s big victory against Wolverhampton

With a quadruple from its flagship scorer, Erling Haaland, Manchester City signed another controlled victory (5-1) against Wolverhampton, this Saturday in the Premier League. The Cityzens remain one point behind Arsenal, leader in the standings with still a game in hand.

Disappointing in the last confrontations in the Champions League, mid-April, Haaland recalled that he remained this extraordinary scorer capable of strokes of genius this Saturday. The Norwegian was in full swing against Wolves, at the Etihad with his first quadruple of the season, including two goals from the penalty spot (12th and 45+3), a headed goal (35th) and a last one from his magic foot left (54th). Final victory 5-1 also with a goal from Julian Alvarez.

A high-level performance which allows the club to maintain pressure on leader Arsenal, one point ahead.

Three goals in 30 minutes for the flying Norwegian

The start of the match was ideal for the Citizens who first quickly obtained a penalty, the result of effective pressing on the restart, on a contentious contact between Aït Nouri and Gvardiol, struck at the moment of his strike. And it was on a perfect counter-foot from Erling Haaland that the Skyblues opened the scoring in the 12th minute.

Faced with the blue wave which continuously presses, the Wolves are cornered throughout the first half in their own half and make a series of gross errors on ball exits. Already very close to making the break less than five minutes after opening the score, without a save from José Sa, the Norwegian, with his height of 1.94 meters, once again flies higher than everyone at home. 34th minute and successfully this time, to crucify the Portuguese goalkeeper with a powerful helmet hit into the side net. Before taking a penalty alone (caught by Semedo) just before the break and making it happen: three goals in almost thirty minutes for the Cyborg who has now been involved in more than 100 goals since his arrival at the club. two years ago.

The crazy stat of 61 goals in 63 league games

Returning from the locker room, if Hee Chan Wong reduces the score after an approximate exit from Ederson (53rd), Haaland puts an end to the last hopes of the Wolves and allows his team to take off by signing his first quadruple of the season (and his 25th goal as top scorer in the championship) with a ball placed in the top corner after a nice sequence (54th). His 61st goal in 63 league matches. Monstrous.

Manchester City has just scored a sixth consecutive league success since its draw against Arsenal (0-0) at the end of March, and sticks to the London leader in the standings, also victorious this Saturday against Bournemouth (3-0).
