Man City defeated Wolves 5-1, with Erling Haaland scoring four goals to help Pep Guardiola’s team maintain their lead in the Premier League title race.

Erling Haaland’s sensational four-goal performance propelled Manchester City to a resounding 5-1 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Etihad Stadium. This emphatic win saw City close the gap on league leaders Arsenal to just one point, after Mikel Arteta’s side secured a 3-0 win over Bournemouth earlier in the day.

Pep Guardiola’s men showcased their determination to clinch an unprecedented fourth consecutive English title with a scintillating display. Haaland was the star of the show, converting two penalties in the 12th and 45+3rd minutes, as well as scoring a powerful header in the 35th minute. The Norwegian striker then added a fourth goal just seconds after Hwang Hee-Chan found the net for Wolves in the 53rd minute.

Haaland’s exceptional performance earned him a standing ovation from the home fans as he made way for his replacement, Julian Alvarez, who added City’s fifth goal in the 85th minute.

In addition to this remarkable victory, City also broke their all-time home record, surpassing their previous 42-game unbeaten streak set between December 1919 and November 1921.

However, the focus now shifts to City’s pursuit of the historic Premier League crown. With just three more wins needed to secure the title, City will face Fulham and Tottenham away, before returning to the Etihad to host West Ham. The English game’s biggest prize is tantalizingly within their grasp.
