We all knew he was going to be good... but this good? Goodness, Manchester City striker Erling Haaland has made people forget all about the struggles the team had at the forward position last season.
With someone needing to step in to be the full-time replacement for Sergio Aguero, Haaland has filled the void and then some. Seriously, this kid is the real deal and people all over England are loving what they're seeing from him.

The man has recorded a hat-trick in three consecutive home games? That's unheard of, yet Haaland was able to get that job done. Who knows if anyone will prevent him from scoring more brilliant goals in the near future.
In the Manchester Derby, Haaland put on quite the performance going up against United. In the 6-3 win, Haaland indeed score three goals, while fellow superstar Phil Foden also found the back of the net three times as well.
With Haaland playing so well, it's looking like Manchester City will be taking home the EPL title trophy once again this season. The hope now, though, is that Haaland can help this team get over the line and win the Champions League for the first time in club history.
The future is somehow even brighter for this team and Haaland is the main reason why. This star has people across the globe talking and rightfully so. Haaland's one of the best in the world, that's for sure.
