Erling Haalan is one fire for Manchester City.

Manchester City News: Erling Haaland scored 5 goals in FA Cup win over Luton Town

This kid really is unreal! Last season, Erling Haaland was a beast for Manchester City and manager Pep Guardiola. Now, Haaland is providing even more magic for City, as they're hoping to win another Premier League title. 

On top of that, Man City is still in the running for both the Champions League and FA Cup trophies. In the FA Cup, City took on Luton Town this week and they posted an unreal 6-2 win. In that victory, Haaland scored five goals... FIVE! 

Erling Haaland was brilliant vs. Luton Town in the FA Cup 

What else is there to say about Haaland? He continues to prove to be one of the best strikers in the world, arguably the best. City won the treble last season and it's no coincidence it was also Haaland's first year with the team. 

Not only was Haaland brilliant, but come on, we've also got to give Kevin De Bruyne a ton of credit too. Of Haaland's five goals, De Bruyne provided him with four assists. You can't overstate how important both of these guys are for the club. 


Come this weekend, De Bruyne and Haaland will look to keep the good vibes going, as City will be hosting Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium. It's been a different story for these two teams this year: MCFC is in the hunt to win the league, while United will be lucky if they finish in the Top 4. 

The first time these two teams met this season, City posted a 3-0 win over United at Old Trafford. The expectation is that another lopsided victory will be on the way for Guardiola's men. 

For the rest of the campaign too, there's going to be a lot of buzz surrounding this club. People felt like Haaland was robbed of the Ballon d'Or last season, but if he keeps playing this way, there will be no reason for him not to receive the high honor. From our chair, he no question deserves it in 2024.
