Erling Haaland has collected another match ball. The Norwegian striker took to the field on Saturday with 39 goals for the 2022-23 season and left with 42 goals in all competitions in his first season in blue.
Manchester City brushed past Burnley at the Etihad on Saturday, winning 6-0 to progress to the semi-finals of the FA Cup.

Another Haaland hat-trick
The 22-year-old is in frightening form and scored five against RB Leipzig on Tuesday; City won 7-0 on Tuesday and 6-0 on Saturday - scoring 13 goals in less than a week.
Haaland deservedly picked up the Man of the Match Award as the rain came down on a wet evening in the northwest and City can now prepare for an FA Cup semi-final at Wembley.
Saturday’s treble was Haaland’s sixth hat-trick of the season. He has now scored 16 hat-tricks at club level and two with Norway at international level.
Many have questioned whether he was the right fit for City. He certainly is.
