Erling Haaland treble helps Manchester City keep pressure on Arsenal

Erling Haaland scored a hat-trick against Wolves as Manchester City maintained the pressure on Premier League leaders Arsenal with a 3-0 win.

Wolves stifled the home side for much of the first half before Haaland took charge, heading in Kevin De Bruyne's cross. He added a second from the spot early in the second half and completed the hat-trick with a straightforward finish after Jose Sa's error.

Only his substitution spared Wolves. The goals take Haaland's Premier League total for the season to 25 in just 19 appearances. The mini drought of two games ended with his header against Tottenham on Thursday evening. A new scoring streak has begun.

The result moved City to within two points of Arsenal at the full-time whistle with the Gunners playing one of their two games in hand later in the afternoon. Wolves remain just outside the relegation zone, ahead of Bournemouth on goal difference.
