Multiple words are being banded about to describe our number nine as he continues to shock the footballing word.
If you ever have been described as a freak, monster, beast or killer then it’s not looking good, however, I can ensure that it is all positive when it comes to describing Erling Haaland.
The Norwegian striker took his tally to fourteen goals in eight Premier League games, breaking the records that had been longstanding for a number of decades.
A hat-trick of hat-tricks in consecutive home games is remarkable given that Cristiano Ronaldo has only scored three in his Premier League career, and the likes of Harry Kane, Didier Drogba, and Thierry Henry all taking over 50 games to reach that feat.
Michael Owen had been the quickest player to score three Premier League hat tricks. He took 48 games for Liverpool to bag his third, so we are witnessing something unique and an obliteration of the record.
That hat-trick, along with Foden’s three goals, broke a 52-year stat as the first City hat-trick since Francis Lee’s in a 4-1 victory in 1970.
The wonderboy was involved in five goals, scoring three and assisting two, and no player has ever made more goal involvements in a single Premier League Manchester derby.
His form has also seen him become the first player to score over 100 goals in his first 100 games in the European super leagues, the majority scored in Germany.
These statistics are simply incredible for any player. And he is our number nine; what a time to be a City fan.
So, what other records could be in his sights this season?
