Elling Holland (22, Man City) continues his overwhelming hat-trick record.
Haaland started and scored three goals in the 2022-23 season FA Cup quarterfinal match against Burnley held at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, England on the 19th (Korean time). He scored consecutive goals in the 32nd and 35th minutes of the first half and the 14th minute of the second half. Haaland was substituted out in the 18th minute of the second half, and Man City won 6-0 and advanced to the semifinals.
Haaland has scored six hat-tricks in all matches this season. It is the overwhelming number one among players belonging to the English Premier League (EPLL). The joint second place is Son Heung-min (Tottenham), Mohamed Salah (Liverpool), Phil Foden (Man City), Leandro Trossar (Arsenal), Ivan Tony (Brentford). They scored a hat-trick each side by side. Even if the hat-trick record of the five tied for second place is combined, it falls short of Haaland’s record of 6 times.
Haaland also scored a hat-trick against Leipzig in the second leg of the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League (UCL) held on the 15th. On this day, he scored 5 goals instead of 3. For reference, only 63 jumped out. It was a ‘crazy performance’ to the extent that Holland himself said, “If I played all 90 minutes, a double hat-trick (6 goals) would have been possible.” 스포츠토토
In addition, he recorded a hat-trick against Wolverhampton at the end of January, a hat-trick against Manchester United in early October of last year, a hat-trick against Nottingham Forest and a hat-trick against Crystal Palace at the end of August. All of these 4 matches were in the Premier League (EPL), and 3 goals were scored.
As a result, Haaland is recording 42 goals and 5 assists in 37 official games this season. Only 6 Premier League players have scored 40 or more goals in a single season. Ruud van Nistelrooy (44 goals in the 2022-03 season) and Salah (44 goals in the 2017-18 season) are tied for first place.
Then there are Haaland and Cristiano Ronaldo (42 goals in 2007-08 season). Harry Kane (41 goals in 2017-18 season) and Andy Cole (41 goals in 1993-94 season) are tied for fifth. Haaland has at least 15 more games left, including 11 league games. Achieving a new record seems only a matter of time.
