Erling Braut Haaland has been a standout performer for Manchester City this season. As a result, he has begun to break records in his first season in the Premier League. During the Premier League match between Fulham and Manchester City, the star striker scored his 50th goal of the season. After 92 years, a player in the English Premier League accomplished this feat.
With his 50th goal of the season, Haaland has tied Tom Waring’s 92-year-old Premier League record. He could be on his way to breaking Dixie Dean’s Premier League record of most goals in a single season by a player with 63 goals with 8 or more matches to go. If not, he has a good chance of breaking Cristiano Ronaldo’s single-season goal record of 61.
Erling Braut Haalandd Stats; The English Premier League
E. Haaland scored his 34th Premier League goal this season against Fulham. He has become a goal machine in the English Premier League since joining Manchester City from Borussia Dortmund at the start of this season. With his 34th goal, he has matched Alan Shearer and Andy Cole’s joint Premier League record of 34 goals in a single season. However, Haaland still has six league games remaining.
If the coach starts the star player in the remaining games, he could get much closer to 40 goals and break more records. He has already scored four hattricks while accumulating the goals. The 22-year-old is also the leading scorer in the top five European leagues. He has outperformed and outscored Serie A’s Victor Osimhen, Ligue 1’s Kylian Mbappe, and Premier League’s Harry Kane.
Haaland: UEFA Champions League Stats
Haaland has scored 12 goals in eight Champions League appearances this season. While this is an impressive accomplishment in and of itself, he has also set another record this season by scoring five goals in a single game. He set this record against RB Leipzig in Man City’s round of 16 match. Only two other players in Champions League history have accomplished this feat: Lionel Messi and Luiz Adriano.
Cristiano Ronaldo holds the record for most goals in a single season with 17. Manchester City’s semi-final against Real Madrid still has two legs. If they advance, they will have another match on their hands. This means Haaland is still likely to have three Champions Leagues on his hands. As a result, if he scores six goals in the remaining matches, he could break Ronaldo’s record this season.
