ERLING HAALAND’s astonishing six-goal run in his first four Premier League games has only been surpassed by a single striker.
Haaland has made an instant impact in the Prem since joining League champions Borussia Dortmund in the summer.
The Norwegian striker is already proving he’s worth the £50million City spent to bring him to the Etihad.
Haaland went off on a flyer by scoring a brace in City’s 2-0 win over West Ham.
His late goal against Newcastle last week earned Pep Guardiola’s side a 3-3 draw.
And the 22-year-old saved City’s blushes again on Saturday with his first-ever Prem hat-trick which saw his side go from 2-0 down to win 4-2.
Haaland’s treble put him level with City legend Sergio Aguero – who also hit six for the club in the same number of games when he arrived in the division.
Only football legend Micky Quinn who had spells with Newcastle and Coventry City can boast the same record in the Prem as the City pair, sky sports revealed.
Quinn reached the incredible tally when he scored four goals on his Toon debut against Leeds in 1989.
And he tweeted Haaland was in good company in the Premier League when the BBC published the Norwegian’s achievement.

But Haaland’s impressive feat wasn’t enough to knock ex-Chelsea star Diego Costa off the top spot when it comes to most goals scored after joining the Prem.
Costa managed to score seven times in his first four Prem appearances after arriving in west London from Atletico Madrid in 2014, edging Haaland by one goal.
His 52 goals in 89 league appearances helped the Blues clinch two Prem titles before his return to Atletico in 2017.
And City will be hoping Haaland can keep hitting the net as he looks to retain his Prem crown this season.
