Record hunter Erling Haaland, English football champion Manchester City, scored a hat-trick to claim his fourth win of the season and is the same in the history books of the English Premier League. The Norwegian scored his goals in the seventh to ninth season in an easy 6-0 (3-0) win over newly promoted Nottingham Forest and thus set a record: no one in league history has scored so many goals after five games.
Besides former Dortmunder (12′, 23′, 38′), Joao Cancelo (50′) and Julian Alvarez (66′, 88′) scored for Pep Guardiola’s side, who are second with 13 points. Haaland, who scored just three times in Saturday’s 4-2 win over Crystal Palace, was substituted in the 69th minute, with Kevin De Bruyne taking his place.
Arsenal fared better than Man City, as they celebrated their fifth victory in their 2-1 (1-0) win over Aston Villa and finished first with 15 points. Gabriel Jesus (30), moved from Man City to London in the summer, and Gabriel Martinelli (77) scored a decisive goal.
