Manchester City kicked off vs Wolves knowing a win would take them to within two points of Arsenal.
The Gunners do have two games in hand, but one of those comes against an in-form Manchester United later today, so a win vs Wolves was vital for City.
And they are currently well on their way to picking up a big three points at the Etihad.
Man City dominated from the get-go but struggled to carve out any clear-cut chances in the opening half-hour.
However, Erling Haaland headed in from a Kevin De Bruyne ball after 39 minutes.
He then scored from the spot four minutes after the restart before bagging his hat-trick 55 minutes in.
Haaland had already broken the record for the quickest player to reach three Premier League hat-tricks, smashing a record set by Michael Owen.
Now, after scoring his 4th of the campaign, Opta have revealed that Erling Haaland has scored his fourth Premier League hat-trick in just his 19th appearance, breaking Ruud van Nistelrooy’s record of four hat-tricks in 65 league games.
