After leaving Borussia Dortmund, young striker Erling Haaland is having a great season with Pep Guardiola’s men. The Norwegian is on a ride to break the all-time season record in the Premier League. Andy Cole and Alan Shearer hold the current record for scoring the most goals in a single season of Premier League.
They scored 34 goals in the 1993-94 and 1994-95 seasons, respectively. However, the tournament consisted of 42 games in the ’90s, while it features 38 games now. In recent times, Mohamed Salah scored 32 goals for Liverpool in the 2017-18 season. Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suarez follow the standing, each scoring 31 goals in the past decades.
Now, can the 22-year-old striker make history? This question arises as he has shown that possibility. Haaland has already scored 14 goals in just eight matches with an average of 1.75 goals per game. If he can keep riding this momentum, he is projected to net 66 goals by the end of the season. It will comfortably break the all-time season record by a wide margin.
The youngster is leaving no stone unturned and utilizing his form in all stages. Meanwhile, Manchester City demolished FC Copenhagen with a 5-0 win on Thursday in a group stage game of the UEFA Champions League. Haaland scored two goals in the first half to give his team an early lead.
