      Erling Haaland scored a four-goal haul as Manchester City cruised past Wolves 5-1 at the Etihad Stadium to move within one point of the Premier League summit.

      Man City showed their dominance early on, taking the lead just 10 minutes into the game. 

      Rayan Aït-Nouri's foul on Josko Gvardiol in the box resulted in a penalty, which Erling Haaland confidently converted, sending the goalkeeper the wrong way.

      Continuing to create opportunities, the Citizens doubled their lead after 35 minutes with a well-worked team move culminating in Rodri finding Haaland at the back post, who headed home.

      Just before half-time, City had the chance to further solidify their advantage when Nelson Semedo fouled Haaland in the box. From the spot, the Norway international calmly completed his hat-trick.

      Wolves offered almost no threat in the first half but pulled one back eight minutes into the second half after Ederson failed to deal with a cross, allowing Hwang Hee-chan to finish into an empty net.

      The hosts quickly responded as a minute later, Haaland capitalised on a swift counter-attack, leaving Max Kilman behind before unleashing a powerful shot into the far corner, restoring City's three-goal lead.

      Despite City's continued pressure and attempts to score more goals, Wolves' goalkeeper Jose Sá made several good saves to keep the scoreline at 4-1.

      However, Sá was unable to prevent substitute Julian Alvarez from adding City's fifth goal in the 85th minute, sealing an emphatic victory for the reigning champions.

      With this win, Pep Guardiola's men remain second in the Premier League table, but now just one point behind leaders Arsenal, who beat Bournemouth earlier today, with City still having a game in hand over them.

      In the second half, it was more of the same from City as they continued to dominate possession and create chances. Haaland added insult to injury for Wolves by scoring his fourth goal of the game in the 78th minute, before Riyad Mahrez sealed the win with a fifth goal for City.

      As a Manchester City fan, I am over the moon with Haaland's performance today! He was a true powerhouse on the field, scoring four fantastic goals and leading our team to a convincing

      The second half saw more of the same from City, with Haaland adding his fourth goal of the night in the 55th minute. Wolves were able to grab a late consolation goal through Leander Dendoncker, but it was too little too late.

      As a Manchester City fan, I am over the moon with Haaland's incredible performance tonight! He was a clinical finisher and showed great composure from the penalty spot. Our team dominated the match and it's great to see us
