Haaland scores hat trick for City in 3-0 win over Wolves
Erling Haaland scored his fourth hat trick of the season as Manchester City defeated Wolves 3-0 in the Premier League.
This win keeps City’s title hopes alive and marks the first time they’ve had back-to-back league victories since the World Cup.
Haaland’s treble takes his goal count for the season to 31 in all competitions.
The match started off rough with Wolves using aggressive tactics, but City was able to adapt and dominate the game. Phil Foden did not play, but Kevin De Bruyne returned to the starting lineup.
Haaland scored the first goal late in the first half with a header off a cross from De Bruyne, and then scored from the penalty spot early in the second half.
He added his third goal shortly before being substituted. Wolves did mount a late effort with a couple of shots on goal, but City held on for the victory.
