Erling Haaland’s Hat-trick Seals Victory for Manchester City Against Burnley
Pep Talks and Haaland Speaks
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola expressed his admiration for Burnley following his team’s dominant FA Cup quarter-final victory. Guardiola had high praise for Burnley despite his team’s 6-0 win against their opponents. Erling Haaland, who scored a hat-trick in the match, spoke to BBC and said he was very happy with his recent performance.
Erling Haaland continued his impressive form by scoring a hat-trick against Burnley during the FA cup quarter-final match. He has scored his last five goals in two games, and he’s the first player since Liverpool’s John Wark in 1984-85 to score hat-tricks in the top-flight, FA Cup, and European Cup/Champions League in the same season.
City Advances to Semifinals
Manchester City defeated Burnley 6-0 and advances to the semifinals. The first yellow card of the match was awarded to Barnes in the 90th minute, with two additional minutes added to the game. De Bruyne was replaced with Grealish in the 89th minute, and Haaland was named the player of the match by Jermaine Jenas.
City continued their impressive display of football with Mahrez scoring in the 54th minute, and Haaland scoring two more goals in the 61st and 68th minutes. Burnley continued to press and attempt their passes, but they were no match for City’s unstoppable attack.
Entertaining First Half
The first half of the match was entertaining, with both teams contributing much. Burnley had a four-on-three situation in the 41st minute, but the momentum was lost when their pass went astray. City’s Haaland scored his first two goals within three minutes in the 36th and 39th minute.
