Erling Haaland: Breaking Records at Manchester City
Erling Haaland has been on a record-breaking spree since joining Manchester City in the summer of 2022. The Norwegian striker, who previously played for Borussia Dortmund, has been in scintillating form, scoring goals for fun in the Premier League and other competitions.
Haaland’s latest record came in Manchester City’s recent clash with Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League. He scored his team’s third goal of the night, taking his tally to 45 goals in all competitions for the 2022–23 season. This is the most goals scored by a player at a Premier League club in a single season, breaking the previous record held jointly by Ruud van Nistelrooy and Mohamed Salah.
What makes Haaland’s feat even more impressive is that he achieved it in just 39 appearances, compared to 52 for van Nistelrooy and Salah. The 22-year-old has been a revelation for Manchester City, and his goals have been vital in the team’s push for multiple trophies this season.
Haaland’s scoring prowess was evident from the start of the season, as he scored nine goals in his first five Premier League games, a record for any player in the competition’s history. He also became the first player to score in each of his first four away games in the Premier League and the first to score hat-tricks in three consecutive home games.
In March 2023, Haaland broke another record, becoming Manchester City’s leading scorer in a single campaign. His 39th goal of the season surpassed the previous record held by Tommy Johnson since 1929.
Haaland’s performances this season have made him one of the most sought-after players in world football. He has been linked with a move to several top clubs, but Manchester City will be hoping to keep hold of him for many years to come.
With Haaland in their ranks, Manchester City will always have a chance of winning every competition they enter. His ability to score goals from all angles and distances makes him a nightmare for opposing defenses. If he continues at this rate, he could break many more records and cement his place as one of the greatest strikers of all time.
