So, that isn’t turning out to be much of a title race? Manchester City blew away Arsenal 4-1 at Etihad Stadium to stamp their title credentials as they hunt for a historic treble. Roles were reversed in the game as Erling Haaland assisted two Kevin de Bruyne goals. However, the moment of the game came when Erling Haaland, with his hair down and flowing, marked City’s win with an emphatic fourth goal in injury time.
Fans were left in awe at the Norwegian Cyborg’s nonchalant scoring ways.
Erling Haaland hair down leaves fans in awe
In the 95th minute of the game, Phil Foden played a pass to Erling Haaland. With his hair down, Erling Haaland quickly reacted to the pass deflecting off of Rob Holding and got at the end of it. From then, he did what he does best. He took a couple of touches to steady himself, before unleashing a trademark shot of his to score his first, and City’s fourth goal. With that, Erling Haaland records book had another entry in it, as the Norwegian took the record for most goals scored in a 38-game Premier League season with his 33rd strike.
As he ran away in jubilation, his hair-down moment lit up Twitter. Here are the best reactions to Erling Haaland hair down viral moment-

Whether the power rests in his hair or not, one thing is for sure, Manchester City and Erling Haaland have gained momentum at the perfect time.
With the Premier League title race now in their hands, a Champions League semifinal against Real Madrid and a FA Cup final against Manchester United on their hands, the treble dream is more realistic than ever. Who knows, maybe Erling Haaland with hair down is the moment that will be remembered in the future as the one where this team believed the treble was theirs.
