Manchester City cruised into the FA Cup semi-finals after crushing Burnley 6-0 at the Etihad Stadium, all thanks to their hat-trick machine, Erling Haaland once again.
Erling Haaland is the sixth player in the Premier League to have 40 or more goals in a single season across all competitions:
44 – van Nistelrooy, 2002-03
44 – Salah, 2017-18
42 – Ronaldo, 2007-08
41 – Cole, 1993-94
41 – Kane, 2017-18
41 – Haaland, 2022-23
The prolific Norwegian scorer bagged his second hat-trick of the week to bring his season total to 42 goals.
Erling Haaland has scored six hat-tricks at the Etihad Stadium this season, which is more games than he has gone without a goal there.
With his positioning, speed, hunger to win the ball, and stamina—all perfect—Erling Haaland is a genuine striker, and his celebration was cold as well.
Erling Haaland has scored more hat-tricks in all competitions this season (6) than every other Premier League player combined (5).
6 – Erling Haaland
1 – Mohamed Salah
1 – Ivan Toney
1 – Son Heung-min
1 – Phil Foden
1 – Leandro Trossard
The Man City forward is extraordinary as he has now scored eight goals in two games, six hat tricks this season, and 42 goals overall. He is currently unstoppable.

Cole Palmer also found the back of the net to put the Clarets to the sword, while Julian Alvarez recorded a brace.
On his return to his former team, Burnley manager Vincent Kompany and his players learned a difficult lesson.
Erling Haaland is currently THREE goals away from tying the record for the most goals scored by a Premier League club in a single season across all competitions.
Prior to City’s return to action on April 1 against Liverpool in the Premier League, there is a two-week international break.
On March 31, Burnley will play at home against Sunderland in their return to Championship competition.
