Haaland hits his 50th goal of the season

Erling Haaland has hit yet another incredible landmark by scoring his 50th goal of the season for Manchester City in Sunday's 2-1 win at Fulham..

The City striker's penalty against Fulham after just two minutes saw him become the first Premier League player ever to score a half century of goals in all competitions.

Haaland has reached the milestone in 44 games scoring 34 in the Premier League, 12 in the Champions League, three in the FA Cup and one in the Carabao Cup.


It also extends his record as the Premier League player to have scored the most goals in a single season, having already passed the previous record of 44 held by both Ruud van Nistelrooy during the 2002/03 campaign and Mohamed Salah in 2017/18.

The 22-year-old is already City’s leading scorer across a single campaign, having overtaken Tommy Johnson’s tally of 38, which had stood since 1929.

All of Johnson’s goal that season came in the league and Haaland could yet surpass that total to set another Club record for league goal.

Among other records, the Norwegian is also the first player to net in each of his first four Premier League away games and became the first to score hat-tricks in three consecutive matches at home.

Congratulations to Erling on reaching yet another astonishing milestone!
