The Norwegian continues to rip up the record books as we look at the numbers behind his incredible achievements

Haaland has achieved incredible statistics in his debut season in the Premier League 2022/23. He has equaled the record for the most goals in a single season, held by Andrew Cole and Alan Shearer, by scoring 34 goals in his first 30 appearances. He surpassed Mohamed Salah’s record of 32 goals in a 38-match season. At his current rate of 1.13 goals-per-match, he could break Shearer’s all-time Premier League goal record in just 231 matches, compared to Shearer’s 441 appearances.

Haaland has also made history by scoring the most goals in a season for Manchester City, surpassing a record that stood since 1929. He has achieved remarkable feats, such as being the first player in the Premier League to score hat-tricks in three consecutive home matches and the first Manchester City player to score a hat-trick in a Manchester derby since 1970.

Under Pep Guardiola’s management, Haaland has been the fastest player to score 25 goals, beating notable names like Lionel Messi, Samuel Eto’o, Sergio Aguero, and Thierry Henry. He also shares the record for the fastest player to reach 10 Premier League goals, matching Mick Quinn’s achievement.
