Norwegian striker Erling Haaland has made history by breaking the record for the most goals scored in a Premier League season.
Haaland scored his 35th goal of the campaign against West Ham on Wednesday night, surpassing the previous record of 34 goals held jointly by Andrew Cole and Alan Shearer.
Both Cole and Shearer scored their 34 goals over 42 games, highlighting the impressive nature of Haaland’s feat.
The 22-year-old has been an unstoppable force for Manchester City this season, scoring 51 goals in all competitions, including 12 in the Champions League, three in the FA Cup, and one in the Carabao Cup.
Haaland’s record-breaking goal against West Ham came just days after he scored his 34th goal of the season from the penalty spot against Fulham.
Haaland’s impressive debut season in England has seen him score four hat-tricks for City, as well as contribute six assists to his teammates.
The striker’s £51 million transfer from Borussia Dortmund to Manchester City has proven to be a wise investment, with Haaland establishing himself as one of the most prolific forwards in world football.
