Haaland breaks 38-game Premier League goalscoring record


Erling Haaland of Manchester City broke the previous high for goals scored in a single 38-game Premier League season. He accomplished this feat at the Etihad Stadium during Manchester City’s game
versus Arsenal.
The Norwegian increases his league position to 33 and extends his lead in the battle for the Golden Boot with his late goal in the 4-1 victory over Arsenal. Additionally, he surpasses Mo Salah of Liverpool’s previous mark of 38 games. The Egyptian scored 32 goals in the 2017–18 Premier League. With 34 goals each in the 42-game seasons of 1993–94 and 1994–95, respectively, Andrew Cole and Alan Shearer presently hold the record for the entire Premier League period. Haaland needs just two more goals to secure the record outright with seven league games remaining.
His form in his first-ever campaign in England has been pivotal for his side’s fortunes, which is currently playing under coach Pep Guardiola and is aiming for their fifth Premier League title in six seasons and three in a row. In his first 13 Premier League games of the year, he scored 18 goals, including hat-tricks against Crystal Palace, Nottingham Forest, and Manchester United. Haaland has maintained his impressive play since domestic football resumed after the World Cup, notching his fourth Premier League hat-trick against Wolves in January.
He has scored eight goals in his last eight league games, which is a streak. Haaland has now scored a total of 49 goals this season, which is a Premier League club record and surpasses Salah’s 44 goals from the 2017/18 season and Ruud van Nistelrooy’s 44 from the
2002-03 season.
He’s also the leading scorer in this year’s UEFA Champions League, having netted 11 goals in seven appearances. Manchester City’s 4-1 victory at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday, which puts them in charge of the title race, dealt a fatal blow to Arsenal’s Premier League aspirations.
The unstoppable Erling Haaland, who assisted both of Kevin De Bruyne’s goals, ultimately scored the goal that his performance deserved by adding the fourth in stoppage time (90+5 minutes). De Bruyne scored two goals (in the seventh and 54th minutes) and assisted John Stones (45+1 minutes) on the other.
Manchester City is in the second spot in the points table with 73 points, 23 wins, four draws, and four losses in 31 games. On the other hand, Arsenal is in first place with 23 wins, six draws, and four losses in 33 matches. They have a total of 75 points. The following Super Sunday, Manchester City takes on Fulham. The following Tuesday, Arsenal hosts London
rivals Chelsea.
