The Norwegian goal machine has now scored a total of 42 goals in this season and the season has not even ended yet.

The second goal from Haaland came exactly three minutes later as Foden became the assister after charging down the left, as his low ball in the area invited the fox in the box Haaland, who did not miss and lifted it neatly over the keeper at the 35th minute of the game.

It did not stop for Haaland’s mystics here as he completed his hat-trick by being present like always, at the right place, in the right time in the 59th minute of the match with a stunning rebound from Foden’s attempt at the post.

Pep Guardiola then decided to take the iconic Erling Haaland off the pitch in the 63rd minute of the match, making Haaland’s contribution a total of eight goals within just 126 minutes of playing time.
