Erling Haaland is leaving goal records in his wake after scoring his sixth hat-trick of the season against Burnley.

The Norwegian machine put away a quick-fire double in three minutes of first-half action in the FA Cup quarter-final tie at the Emirates, before completing his treble just before the hour mark.

But Haaland then put away a second quickly after

First latching onto a pass through from Julian Alvarez, Haaland burst forward, with his rangy stride seeing him beat Bailey Peacock-Farrell to the ball before poking it past him.

That made it 40 goals for the season, with Haaland extending his record for most in a season for Manchester City.

He had already beaten Tommy Johnson’s 93-year-old club record of 38 goals in the 1928/28 season.

Burnley boss Vincent Kompany was livid with his players for switching off to allow the ball through, and called over all ten outfield players to berate them.

However, just three minutes later it was Haaland again, with Phil Foden curling a beautiful ball round the Burnley defence for his striker to tap home with ease.

And he then scored his third of the match just before the break after tapping home a rebound from Foden’s strike.

That sign might run out of battery soon

Haaland banged in FIVE goals midweek in City’s Champions League Round of 16 second leg against RB Leipzig.

He fired in a first half hat-trick against the German side, as he once again tormented the Bundesliga outfit, just as he had done so for Borussia Dortmund.

The 22-year-old is the sixth Premier League player to score at least 40 goals in a single season.

Ruud van Nistelrooy an Mohamed Salah have scored the most in a single campaign with 44, but it won’t be long until Haaland breaks that record.
