Erling Haaland One Step Away From Breaking Man City Legend’s Record: Here Are Some Records Already Smashed By The Norwegian
Erling Haaland’s emphatic start to life in the English Premier League has left many fans and pundits stunned.
Fans and pundits might be impressed but not more than the oil-funded club, Manchester City who bargained after signing Haaland at a ‘low’ price tag of 60 million euros from Borussia Dortmund.
The former Borussia Dortmund player has already etched his name in Champions League and the Premier League football’s record books which is a remarkable start for the Norwegian at the Etihad stadium.
In the Uefa Champions League, Haaland is leading the goal-scoring charts with 3 goals and in the premier league, he has taken his tally to 10 goals.
With 10 goals to his name, aiming to break Mohamed Salah’s record of 32 goals in a season, here are some of the records which Haaland has already smashed.
Premier League Fast Starter
The Norwegian has already smashed Man City legend Kun Aguero and Liverpool’s Micky Quinn’s records. The aforementioned held a record of 8 goals in five games and they were branded as the fastest premier league starters.
However, that record has been smashed by Erling Haaland who managed to reach 9 goals with just six games into the season.
Haaland opened his account on his league debut against West Ham where he netted a brace. From the six games played so far, Haaland only failed to score against Bournemouth.
Erling Haaland seems to be scoring for fun and in the process, breaking several records.
The Norwegian smashed Demba Ba’s record of netting two trebles with the least games. It took Demba Ba 21 games to record two trebles but for Haaland it was easy as melting ice.
The former Red Bull Salzburg striker only needed a paltry five games to smash that record.
Kun Aguero and Raheem Sterling’s Man City Record
Retired Man City legend Kun Aguero and Raheem Sterling who has now joined Chelsea are the two players to score more hat tricks for the club in a season.
Both scored three hat tricks and Erling Haaland already has two to his name with just six games played. Haaland is one away from matching the record but it remains to be seen if Haaland will surpass the record at Etihad.
