Erling Haaland’s Man City goals and the records broken
Erling Haaland has been finding the net at a historic pace since joining Manchester City in the summer. Below are the goals he has scored for the club so far and the most significant records he has broken on the way.
With two Premier League games still to go, Haaland has already surpassed Mohamed Salah’s record of 32 goals in a 38-game Premier League season and beaten Alan Shearer and Andy Cole, both of whom managed 34 back when it was a 42-match competition in the early to mid-Nineties.
Goal 52: Everton (a), Premier League
On the periphery for most of the first-half, Haaland nodded in Ilkay Gundogan's chipped cross after 39 minutes for his 36th Premier League goal and 52nd in all competitions this season. City's 3-0 win moved them within three points of the title.
Goal 51: West Ham (h), Premier League
A classy chip over the onrushing Lukasz Fabianski made the game safe against West Ham as City moved back to the top of the table. Haaland was mobbed by his teammates after the 3-0 win, as they lined up to give him a guard of honour as he walked off the pitch.
Record: Becomes the leading Premier League scorer in a single campaign, surpassing the 34 goals scored by Andy Cole (Newcastle) and Alan Shearer (Blackburn), whose hauls came in 42-game campaigns.
Goal 50: Fulham (a), Premier League
A third-minute penalty set City on course for a victory that propelled them to the top of the Premier League and firmly on course for a fifth title in six seasons.
Record: Becomes the first top-flight player to reach a half century of goals in a single campaign since Tom 'Pongo' Waring did so for Aston Villa in 1931. The goal also moved him level with Andy Cole and Alan Shearer for most goals in a Premier League season with 34, although Cole and Shearer's achievement for Newcastle and Blackburn respectively came in 42-game seasons. One more goal and Haaland will eclipse both – and City still have six league matches to play.
Goal 49: Arsenal (h), Premier League
After tormenting Rob Holding and Gabriel all evening, Haaland finally got the goal he deserved with a sidefoot finish past Aaron Ramsdale in stoppage time.
Record: His 33rd league goal of the campaign means he surpasses Mohamed Salah to hold the record for the most scored in a 38-game Premier League season.
Of course, Haaland gets his goal!
