Erling Haaland made Premier League history on Wednesday when he scored a hat-trick in Manchester City’s 6-0 win over Nottingham Forest.
The Norwegian netted a treble for the second successive match at the Etihad Stadium, taking his tally for the season to nine goals, the most in the competition by a player after only five appearances in the competition.

The Gunners had to respond after substitute Douglas Luiz cancelled out Gabriel Jesus’ opener with a second-half equaliser direct from a corner less than a minute after coming on.
The result makes it five wins from five since the start of the season for the Gunners, the first time they have achieved this feat since 2004/05, and keeps them two points clear at the top of the table.
