Summary of the first half: Manchester City - Nottingham Forest 0:3 (Sport1)

When Arling Holland was bought by Manchester City in the summer, there were those who claimed that his dizzying pace of conquests in Germany would at least be slower.

But after only five games in the English league, it can already be determined: Holland is a well-oiled and formidable goal machine, in every league, in every setting.

After scoring a hat-trick for the second game in a row this evening (Wednesday) and abusing Nottingham Forest with three goals in 26 minutes, his record stands at nine goals in five games at Manchester City, which together with him seems almost unstoppable.



"Oh, Erling Holland continues to score, also in England. What a surprise," tweeted Mats Hummels, who played with the Norwegian elite in Borussia Dortmund, "Didn't you say he would have a hard time in the Premier League?".

Gary Lineker also tweeted that "at this rate, Erling Holland will smash the Premier League's all-time goalscoring record very quickly. He will overtake Alan Shearer before Harry Kane does."

Lineker added: "Hell, Holland scored two hat-tricks,

Each time in one half.

It's crazy."

Unstoppable, at any level and in any league.

Holland's numbers

* Nine goals in five Premier League games - this is Erling Holland's tremendous record.

This is the highest number of conquests ever for a player in the league after five games.



* Holland also scored nine goals in the month of August, the most ever by any Premier League player in any given month of all time.



* Holland has scored more goals than 15 Premier League teams so far this season, including Chelsea and Manchester United.

Just for the record, his goal record alone is better than Nottingham Forest, Bournemouth, West Ham and Aston Villa combined (!).



* Holland is the seventh player in Premier League history to score two hat-tricks in consecutive games.

Previous: Les Ferdinand, Ian Wright, Thierry Henry, Didier Drogba, Wayne Rooney and Harry Kane (twice).



* Holland is the fourth player in Manchester City history to score two hat-tricks in one season after Sergio Aguero (four times), Raheem Sterling and Carlos Tevez.



* The fewest games in the Premier League to reach two hat-tricks:



Erling Holland - 5


Demba Ba - 21


Toni Yeboa - 25


Fernando Torres - 25


Fabrizio Rabanelli - 26



* The amazing part?

Holland needed just 101 touches of the ball to score nine Premier League goals.

He reached the hat trick he scored today in 38 minutes even though he only touched the ball 12 times in the first half.
