The Norwegian’s towering header and two penalty conversions made sure City took an early command of the game.

Despite a brief response from Wolves through Hwang Hee-chan’s goal, City remained rootless, immediately restoring their lead with another goal from Haaland.

The star striker capitalized on a fine assist from Phil Foden to complete his quadruple.

Julian Alvarez, who came on as a substitute, added the fifth goal for City in the closing stages, sealing a emphatic win.
