He got past Ronaldo, scored more than Chelsea, could be better than Shearer. Breakdown of Haaland’s broken records

Date: March 27, 2023 Time: 12:56:03

On matchday 21 of the 2022/23 Premier League, Manchester City, who was still chasing Arsenal, welcomed Wolverhampton from the bottom of the table. The favorite obviously won with a score of 3:0, and the result, almost without help, was brought by Erling Haaland, who scored three goals. The Norwegian super forward once again showed something incredible, and after one he broke a number of records, all of which we will look at.

Goals at the Etihad

The club’s season has jumped halfway recently, but Erling Haaland has already set the record for most goals at Manchester City’s stadium. In 11 Etihad appearances, the Norwegian has scored 19 goals, far more than Sergio Agüero’s record 16 goals in the entire 2011/12 season.

The most surprising thing is that Haaland has scored more goals at home this season than some teams, for example: Manchester United (17), Newcastle (18), Chelsea (13) and many other teams in the league.

Killed the Premier League top scorers from previous seasons

Now the Netherlands have a total of 25 goals, thanks to which they surpass the closest pursuer in front of Harry Kane by as many as 10 goals. Yeah, it’s quite a mess!

Haaland has scored more in 21 rounds than Premier League Golden Boot winners in the last four seasons. Results of the top scorers of past seasons:

2018/19 – 22 goals (Aubameyang, Salah, Mane)

2019/20 – 23 goals (Vardi)

2020/21 – 23 goals (Kane)

2021/22 – 23 (Salah, Son Heung-min)

Erling has 17 more games to go to surpass Andy Cole and Alan Shearer, who scored 34 goals in a season in the early days of the fledgling Premier League. And to catch up with Aguero, who has scored a season-high 26 goals, Erling needs to register just once.

Haaland also approached the record holder Tommy Johnson, whose record for the number of goals in a season (38) with Manchester City he has held since the 1928/29 season, that is, the Norwegian has only eight goals left to score a result that he has celebrated for 94 years.

another hat trick

Haaland scored a hat-trick for the fourth time in 19 games played, already surpassing Cristiano Ronaldo, who needed 236 Premier League games for three hat-tricks.

Haaland caught up with Salah, but he is still far from the leader of the list, again the same Kun Agüero, who has 12 hat-tricks. Previously, Ruud van Nistelrooy pulled off four hat-tricks faster than anyone, but it took him 65 games to do it.

Haaland is still a long way behind Shearer in terms of goals per season, but he only needs to score one hat-trick to catch up with the English great in number of goals per season.

the perfect finisher

To say that the Netherlands is the perfect finisher would be too obvious, but there was an interesting statistical fact that cannot fail to amaze. For the 25 goals scored by the Norwegian big man, it took just 74 shots on target, meaning almost one out of three Erling shots turned into a goal.
