Erling Haaland Makes History With Five Goals In Manchester City's Fa Cup Win Over Luton

Erling Haaland delivered a stunning performance, scoring five goals, as Manchester City cruised to a 6-2 victory over Luton in the FA Cup. Kevin De Bruyne also starred, providing four assists in the remarkable match.

The scoring started early, with Haaland netting twice in the opening 25 minutes. De Bruyne orchestrated both goals, showcasing his playmaking skills. Despite Luton pulling two goals back, City’s clinical finishing proved too much. Haaland completed his hat-trick and added two more goals, while Ross Barkley and Mateo Kovacic also found the net.

Despite missing several chances in a recent game against Chelsea, Haaland’s scoring prowess remains unparalleled.
