With his hat-trick of goals scored in the 34th, 37th, and 64th minutes respectively, Erling Haaland has become the 1st player in Premier League history to score a hat-trick in three successive Premier League home games

He has also become the quickest player to score three Premier League hat-tricks, doing so in just 8 games.

The next player on that list, Michael Owen did so in as many as 48 Premier League appearances.

In the match against Manchester United, Englishman Phil Foden also starred for Manchester City with a hat-trick.

Courtesy of the derby victory, Manchester City are second on the English Premier League table and just a point behind Arsenal.
