Manchester City’s Erling Haaland struck four times as they remained on course to win a fourth successive Premier League title with a 5-1 thrashing of Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday.

Hours after Arsenal’s 3-0 win over Bournemouth, Pep Guardiola’s men responded with a resounding victory that pulled them to within a point of the north Londoners at the top of the standings, but with a game in hand.

Haaland — who boosted his league scoring lead to 25 with the first four-goal haul of his career — converted from the penalty spot in the 12th minute and doubled City’s lead in the 35th when he headed home at the far post from Rodri’s cross.

The 23-year-old Norway international converted again from the spot just before half-time. Hwang Hee-chan pulled one back for Wolves in the 53rd, but a minute later, Haaland smothered any hopes of a comeback by the visitors with his fourth.

Substitute Julian Alvarez completed City’s scoring in the 85th minute.
