He’s rested, he’s recharged and Erling Haaland has a golden opportunity to break records for breaking records. Erling Haaland ; Goals with left foot 12 ; Penalties scored 3 ; Freekicks scored 0 ; Shots 52 ; Shots on target 28.
The Manchester City superstar is firmly on course to obliterate Andy Cole’s 28-year record for most goals scored in a Premier League season and right now the most pertinent question appears to be: how high can Haaland set the new bar?
Haaland missed the World Cup due to Norway’s failure to qualify for the tournament, but the extra rest should benefit the talismanic striker as the long season wears on.
The greatest Scandinavian threat on British soil since Harald Hardrada in 1066 continues to pillage Premier League defences at will. Merciless, unforgiving, he is showing no signs of slowing down.
Any questions over whether Haaland could export his continental success to British shores have ceased. There is simply no doubt in anyone’s mind: Haaland is here – and able – to conquer.
The 2022/23 season looks increasingly like one we will all remember as the ‘year of Erling’ and here are all the key stats you need to know about the towering talisman.
We have got all his career stats to date, and will continue to update his goalscoring exploits as the season rumbles on.
Erling Haaland Premier League goals
Haaland has scored 18 Premier League goals in 13 games since arriving at Manchester City in the summer of 2022.
He has already broken records and equalled greatness in his opening appearances. For starters, nobody has ever scored hat-tricks in three consecutive games until Haaland arrived.
The 22-year-old has already equalled the number of Premier League hat-tricks scored by Cristiano Ronaldo, Jamie Vardy and Frank Lampard, each with hundreds of games under their belts. And the next fastest player to three hat-tricks in Premier League history is Michael Owen, who took 48 games to achieve the feat. Haaland took eight.
Haaland is just five goals away from last season’s Premier League top scorers Mohamed Salah and Son Heung-min, who bagged 23 each. Their totals are very respectable totals for a 38-game season, yet Haaland is approaching their tallies with 25 games left to play.
He netted eight goals in six Champions League group-stage games.
Erling Haaland Champions League goals
Haaland has scored 28 Champions League goals in just 22 appearances across three different teams in the competition.
He started out scoring for RB Salzburg with eight goals in six games before bagging 15 goals in 13 games for Dortmund.
The behemoth striker has reached three goals in two games for Manchester City, meaning he has scored more goals than games for three different clubs in the Champions League at the age of 22.
