Manchester City striker Erling Haaland sets a Premier League record most goals in a season.
Erling Haaland of Manchester City has broken the Premier League goal scoring record.
The Norwegian scored his 35th league goal of the season against West Ham, breaking the previous record of 34 set by Alan Shearer and Andrew Cole.
Haaland had previously broken the record for most goals in a 38-game season, surpassing Mohamed Salah’s 32 goals for Liverpool in 2017-18.
“This is a special night and moment.” “I’m overjoyed and proud,” Haaland told Sky Sports.
The 22-year-old still has five games left to play.
“It feels amazing, I’m really happy, and I’m also happy for the three points,” he said on BBC Match of the Day. “In the end, that’s all that matters, and I’m content.”
“Yeah, things are going well, and now it’s time to concentrate on game by game.” I’ve been saying this for a long time, and the team is following through. “The team is fantastic, and I’m overjoyed.”
Haaland’s 35th Premier League goal of the season came in the second half of City’s 3-0 triumph over West Ham, which returned them to the top of the table.
After the final whistle at Etihad Stadium, he was accorded a guard of honour by his teammates, manager Pep Guardiola, and the club’s backroom staff.
“I’ve never seen it before,” Haaland added. “It was always a nice feeling scoring that goal.”
“It was painful when everyone hit me on the back during the guard of honour.”
