A Haaland hat-trick Wolverhampton's tomb of Lopetegui

Once again Erling Haaland, this time with a hat-trick, pushed the ball forward. Manchester City led Manchester City to victory against Wolverhampton (3-0) by Julen Lopetegui, the man who came out on top. He successfully rescued the team from him and lowered it. de la nube after an encounter in which he suffered an injury. the roller of the team directed byJosep Guardiola.

If nothing goes wrong, Haaland will pulverize his team. records this season. His numbers are spectacular. With the three goals he scored against Wolves, he reached his goal. 25 this season in 19 games in the Premier League. He has already celebrated more than the top scorers of the previous four seasons ( Son Heung-min and Mohamed Salah scored 23 in 2021/22, the same as Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy in 2020/21 and 2019/20, respectively).

He faced a rival whom City left behind. absolutely ko from the start. Reborn from its ashes after Lopetegui's arrival on the bench, Wolverhampton, a new team under the orders of the Spanish coach, faced off against the odds. He faced a tough challenge that he could never overcome. It seems that it is not yet available. mature enough to examine himself against such powerful rivals. The possibility of surprise should never be ruled out, but City never lent itself to the idea.

The exhibition of Haaland will not detract from the performance. not one iota of merit to Lopetegui, who got the most out of it. from UVI to Wolves in just four games. arrived He was five points away from safety and after adding seven out of twelve possible he managed to win. get him off the descent. Now, despite the defeat against City, he will continue to play. He was out of the dangerous squares.

He faced Guardiola, who beat him to the spot. the game from the start. With more depth than Lopetegui, Guardiola can afford to put names like on the bench.Bernardo Silva, Joao Cancelo, Julián Álvarez or Nathan Ake. Against Wolves, he returned to his game. He put Kevin De Bruyne in his line-up and used the ball. Aymeric Laporte on the left back. Everything worked. He was on wheels.

Hegemonic dominance

City were quick to win. He got into a bottleneck for Wolves, locked up on their pitch since referee David Cooteblew the start of the duel. During the entire first part, he accumulated a lot of money. He received one warning after another in the face of his rival's inability to generate anything at all.

The central defender Nathan Collins increased his game. the figure of him to postpone the tragedy. For 40 minutes, it was an impregnable wall for City, which on many occasions ran into the with the fierceness and quality of the giant (1.93) Irish. However, I can't avoid a carousel of occasions that started my life. Haaland after 18 minutes with a shot that saved the ball. Joseph was born. Sá.

Haaland's warning was followed by Ilkai Gündogan's (header over the goal) and that of Rodri Hernández (a long shot that went just wide) that gave way to the Norwegian player's first goal, which opened the field. The can with a header with which he took advantage of the opportunity. It was the tenth assist of De Bruyne's course.

Lopetegui, determined to change the turn of events, made a triple substitution. At the restart, Matheus Cunha, Joao Moutinho and Pablo Sarabia appeared, who signed the second. his debut after leaving PSG. Hwang Hee-chan, Raúl Jiménez and Adama Traoré left the field, but nothing changed.

Citycontinued passing the roller and in just ten minutes Haaland finished. with any comeback attempt by Wolves . First, he got it right. in a penalty committed by Rúben Neves on Gündogan ; and, later, he took advantage of the a Sá error. to sign another treble, the fourth in an official match since he signed the hat-trick. by Guardiola's team.

His two goals did not lower the revolutions of his teammates. Replaced by Julián Álvarezand cheered by the Etihad fans, without Haaland, Guardiola's men continued with the show. They did not manage to increase the income, but they certified a victory with which they placed themselves two points behind Arsenal (they have two games less) thanks to the insatiable voracity of Haaland.
