Erling Haaland Breaks Premier League Record For Most Goals In A Season



Erling Haaland Breaks Premier League Record For Most Goals In A Season

In Manchester City’s match against West Ham, Erling Haaland scored his 35th goal of the year to surpass the Premier League record for goals scored in a single season.

In Wednesday’s 3-0 victory over West Ham, the 22-year-old scored his 35th Premier League goal of the year.

Pep Guardiola’s team took the lead thanks to Nathan Ake before Haaland scored his historic goal. At the Etihad Stadium, Phil Foden scored City’s third goal to complete a crucial three-point victory.

Alan Shearer and Andrew Cole held the previous record for Newcastle and Manchester United respectively – and no-one had come close until Haaland turned up to City.

The forward shattered the feat with five matches to go in spectacular fashion as Pep Guardiola’s side chase their fifth title in six years.

It was a sumptuous finish from the forward as he dinked the ball over the onrushing Lukasz Fabianski, having been played through by Jack Grealish.

The Norwegian had been relatively quiet up until the goal but showed his pure class and what he can do when given a clear-cut chance.

Haaland now has 35 in the Premier League and 51 in all competitions – a remarkable tally for a striker that was written off by many after missing a number of chances in the Community Shield in July.

However, he has proven to be a top-class signing for City since his £51million move from Borussia Dortmund.

After scoring his first City goal against, ironically, West Ham in August, Haaland has not looked back ever since.

He scored twice at the London Stadium on the opening day of the season, before striking a further 13 goals in his next eight top-flight matches as he continued his impressive start in England.

He now holds the overall record and has another five games to add to his tally.

He was given a guard of honour by his team-mates, boss Pep Guardiola and the club’s backroom staff after the final whistle at Etihad Stadium.
