Erling Haaland scored a hat-trick as Manchester City beat Crystal Palace 4-2 in the Premier League on Saturday.

Manchester City went into half-time 2-0 down after a John Stones own goal and a Joachim Andersen header put the Eagles in a commanding position.

Bernardo Silva reduced the deficit shortly after the break before Haaland nodded in the equaliser. 

Haaland then tapped City ahead from close range, before sealing his hat-trick with a composed finish beyond Vicente Guaita with nine minutes remaining.

Following his hat-trick against Crystal Palace, Haaland has now set a Premier League record.

Haaland is just the fourth player to score six or more goals in his first four Premier League appearances.

Haaland has scored six Premier League goals in just four games this season.
