Erling Haaland has been named the Premier League Player of the Year in his debut season for Manchester City.

The Norwegian has scored a remarkable 36 league goals in just 35 appearances – breaking a 29-year record for the most strikes across a Premier League campaign.

He has also contributed eight assists as well as helping City to a third consecutive Premier League title and the finals of the FA Cup and Champions League in June.

Haaland’s 44 total goal involvements is the joint highest of all-time, equalling a record set by former Arsenal forward Thierry Henry in the 2002/03 season.


A City player has now won the trophy for four consecutive seasons with team-mate Kevin De Bruyne collecting it in 2019/20 and 2021/22 and Ruben Dias in 2020/21.

Vincent Kompany also won the award in 2011/12.

De Bruyne was nominated again for this year’s award after reprising his place at the top of the assists table with 16 in total so far.

Arsenal duo Bukayo Saka and Martin Odegaard, Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford, Tottenham striker Harry Kane and Newcastle defender Kieran Trippier were also on the shortlist.

Haaland has already claimed the 2023 Football Writers’ Association Footballer of the Year award, earning more than 80% of the vote in the process.


He has also been nominated for the PFA Player of the Season award.

Everyone at Manchester City is delighted for Erling and would like to send our congratulations on another well-deserved accolade.
