Manchester City striker Erling Haaland has reached 40 goals in his debut season in English football after scoring twice in the first half in the FA Cup against Burnley on Saturday.

The Norwegian netted five times for City in their amazing 7-0 win over RB Leipzig in the Champions League on Tuesday night and might well have added more had he not been substituted in the 63rd minute by manager Pep Guardiola.
