Erling Haaland has taken to the Premier League like a duck to water – and could smash goalscoring records in this league
Manchester City knew Erling Haaland was good… but nine goals in his opening five games have blown the league apart.
Those comments of only being able to do it in a farmer’s league have certainly quietened down. The super Scandi striker has been clinical for City, taking minimal touches but converting everything that falls at his feet – and he’s already the early favorite for the Golden Boot.
Well, of course, he is. But he could well end up breaking plenty of records along the way
1. Most goals in a 38-game season
The current holder: Mohamed Salah (32)
2. Best goals to minutes ratio
The current holder: Sergio Aguero (108 mins per goal)
3. The most hat-tricks in the Premier League
4. The only Premier League Golden Boot winner with more goals than games
The current holder: –Erling Haaland
5. The all-time Premier League goalscoring record
The current holder: Alan Shearer (260)
Nine down, 251 to go.
