Manchester City forward Erling Haaland created more Premier League history on Saturday with a hat-trick against Fulham.

Manchester City cruised to a 5-1 victory against the Cottagers to maintain their perfect start to the season.

But Haaland, who was recently crowned the PFA Player of the Year, stole the spotlight in the second half.

With the match still close at 2-1 in the 70th minute, Haaland scored three goals to ease City past their London rivals.

Those three goals make Haaland the fastest player to reach 50 Premier League goal involvements.

Julian Alvarez had opened the scoring in the first half, before Tim Ream levelled the match.

Centre back Nathan Ake restored City’s lead early in the second half.

In other results, Chelsea were stunned 1-0 by Nottingham Forrest.

Tottenham continued their good start to the season with a 5-2 win over Burnley.

Meanwhile, fixtures between Sheffield United and Everton and Brentford and Bournemouth ended in 2-2 draws.
