Man City take over top spot in Premier League, Haaland goes down in history

 Manchester City took over the top spot in the English Premier League after a 3-0 win against Wolverhampton Wanderers in week 7 on Saturday.

The Citizens’ Norwegian star Erling Haaland, who scored 11 goals in 7 matches, went down in history as he became the first Premier League player to score in his first four away games.

Manchester City’s Jack Grealish drew the first blood very early in the first minute at Molineux Stadium.

Haaland scored in the 16th minute and netted his 11th goal in 7 matches.

Wolves’ Irish defender Nathan Collins’ awful challenge on Grealish did not go unpunished by the referee and he was sent off in the 33rd minute.

Phil Foden scored the third goal in the 69th minute for the Citizens and declared the final score.

Wolves are placed 16th with six points in the Premier League standings.
