Erling Haaland Becomes the Premier League’s Single-Season Goalscoring GOAT

Premier League Single Season Goal Scoring Player

Erling Haaland continues to live up to his reputation as a scoring machine and, on Wednesday, he broke the Premier League’s single-season goals record.

The Manchester City striker notched his 35th goal of the season in a match against West Ham United at Etihad Stadium. It was the second score in the home team’s 3-0 victory.

The goal came in the 70th minute after Haaland, 22, ran with a through-ball from Jack Grealish and kicked the ball over goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski into the net. The Norwegian star slid to his knees in celebration and sat down in a zen pose as his teammates rallied around him.

His father, former Manchester City player Alfie Haaland, was in attendance.

“A bit unreal, to be honest,” Erling said after the game. “I wasn’t thinking of this kind of record when I came here and yeah, to break it means I’ve done something special and I’m really proud of this moment and of this game.”

Haaland stands alone at the top of the standings as he passed Andrew Cole and Alan Shearer, who each had 34 goals when the Premier League had 42 matches in a season. Mohamed Salah’s mark of 32 goals during Liverpool’s 2017-2018 campaign sits as the third-overall highest and second-most in a 38-game season.
