Former Liverpool and Manchester United striker, Michael Owen, has tipped Manchester City striker, Erling Haaland to become Premier League great.

The Norwegian has spent only three and a half weeks in the Premier League, scoring nine goals in 5 five matches, including back to back hat-tricks against Crystal Palace and Nottingham Forest.

Haaland has also emerged the first player to score nine goals in just five Premier League appearances.

The former Borussia Dortmund striker netted a 38-minute hat-trick as City hammered Nottingham Forest 6-0.

Owen, who scored 150 times in the Premier League, has no doubt many more records are heading Haaland’s way.

“I repeat, this fella is going to break virtually every goal scoring record there is,” the ex-Liverpool and Manchester United striker, Owen tweeted.

“He’s too big, too quick, clinical in front of goal and he’s playing in a team that creates dozens of chances. All he needs to do is stay fit.”
