Manchester City beat Crystal Palace 4-2 in the second half, led by Erling Haaland’s hat-trick.

Now that Hirving has joined with Pep Guardiola, he’s been able to score six goals out of his four games.

Manchester City got a win, tying them with Brighton on 10 points. With four points, Crystal Palace is in 13th place.

When Haaland was substituted six minutes before the end, he received a standing ovation. However, when they were down by nine points at half time, they evoked memories of their defeat last year and wondered if they would be as unlucky.

John Stones scored an own goal in the fourth minute, and then Parc Au Prince doubled their lead, with Joachim Andersen scoring a header from Eberechi Eze’s corner in the 21st minute.

City struggled to find the fluency they needed to beat the Getafe side before a goal that was inevitable took place. A low shot from Bernardo Silva was deflected and surprised goalkeeper Vicente Guaita in the 53rd minute of play.

Manchester City went on to win thanks to a pinpoint cross delivered by Phil Foden, just minutes after the player was moved to left back.

The striker turned the ball in from close range after a clever move inspired by the player at his side, Silva. He saved the best for last–showing Ilkay Gundogan exactly where he wanted to run and then beating Joel Ward before firing into the bottom corner of the goal.

“I’m so happy,” Haaland commented after scoring a hat-trick. “It was a proud moment for my family too.”

“Trying to fix what we are doing and getting results”

Shifting the focus back to Haaland’s statements

“This (the conceding of early goals) is a warning that we need to work harder. It’s about training hard and developing,” he said. “We shouldn’t concede early goals when we play at home. It’s about working harder.”
