Manchester City striker, Erling Haaland, on Sunday broke the hat-trick records of four former Premier League stars, including Ruud van Nistelrooy.
Haaland achieved the feat after scoring a hat-trick in Man City’s Premier League 3-0 victory over Wolves on Sunday evening.
Haaland’s three goals against Wolves was his fourth Premier League hat-trick in just his 19 appearances for Pep Guardiola’s side so far this season, breaking Van Nistelrooy’s record (fourth hat-trick in 65 appearances).
Other players Haaland broke their hat-trick records are Luis Suárez (fourth hat-trick in 81 appearances), Alan Shearer (fourth hat-trick in 86 appearances) and Robbie Fowler (fourth hat-trick in 89 appearances).
Haaland has been in brilliant form since joining Man City from Borussia Dortmund last year.
The Norway international is currently the leading top scorer in the Premier League so far this season, ahead of the likes of Harry Kane and Ivan Toney.
