Haaland never tires of breaking Premier League records!

Haaland never tires of breaking Premier League records!

Manchester City’s Norwegian striker Erling Haaland continues to rewrite the records of the richest and most prestigious football league in the world! This weekend he scored his 50th Premier League goal and did it faster than anyone in history.

At the moment, Erling Haaland is included in the list of the best forwards in the world. His talent was appreciated by France Football magazine, placing the scorer in second place in the voting list for the Ballon d'Or. Of course, because the Norwegian scored the most goals in a season not only in the Premier League, but also in the Champions League. Manchester City won both of these tournaments, and in the new campaign they will try to repeat this achievement.

So far, Haaland is mainly scoring doubles rather than hat-tricks, which, however, doesn’t prevent him from leading the Premier League scorers race with a margin. Of course, because the main competitor of the 23-year-old Norwegian (Harry Kane) is now conquering the Bundesliga, and there are no more top-class forwards in the English league. In fact, Erling is competing only with himself and is slowly breaking performance records that are several decades old.

For example, no one in the history of the Premier League scored 50 goals as quickly as Haaland - in 48 matches. Previously, the record belonged to Andy Cole, who scored fifty goals in 65 games. And since the new generation, Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah is closest to Erling. Yes, the Egyptian’s 50 goals in 72 matches is an excellent achievement, but the Norwegian surpassed it by as much as a third.

Haaland also scored against twenty of his twenty-one Premier League opponents. So far, only Brentford, with whom Manchester City will play in December and February, have not suffered from the star striker. And next in line are newcomers to the elite Luton and Sheffield United - more than obvious victims for the Norwegian tip of the attack.

We wouldn’t be surprised if Haaland, young and hungry for success, continues to strive for excellence. It’s unlikely that anyone will stop him from scoring a hundred goals faster than anyone else, and many other league scoring records have found themselves at increased risk with the appearance of the Norwegian.
