Erling Haaland

Erling Haaland Man City is now on the verge of qualifying for the semi-finals of the 2022-2023 UEFA Champions League.

The Citizens won 3-0 over Bayern Munich on Tuesday at the Etihad Stadium, as Haaland got his first win over the Bavarians.

The Norwegian goal-machine has never been victorious in any game against Bayern Munich throughout his time at Borussia Dortmund.

He has literally made 8 appearances against the Bavarians, scored 6 goals, and suffered seven defeats.

However, Erling finally claimed 3 points over the Bundesliga side on Tuesday, as Pep Guardiola’s men keep balling in all competitions.

Even though Thomas Tuchel is familiar with the style of play of the Citizens, having faced them many times at Chelsea in the Premier League.

The German manager struggled at the Etihad Stadium, as he conceded 3 goals in the first-leg of the UCL quarter-finals.

Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City are quite unstoppable at home in all competitions in 2023, playing 10 games and scoring 34 goals.

In the UEFA Champions League in 2022-2023, Haaland has made 7 appearances for City and scored 11 goals.

The Norwegian international is truly a goal-machine, he has been able to score 45 goals for Manchester City this campaign.

Of course, Haaland keeps breaking records as he takes over Mohamed Salah and Ruud van Nistelrooy’s feats on Tuesday.

9 records Erling Haaland Man City has already broken this season 

1. Fastest player to score 10 Premier League goals in a season

The Norwegian international scored 10 EPL goals in just 6 games, despite the fact that he joined Manchester City this season.

Therefore, he’s now the fastest player to score 10 English League goals in a season, keeps smashing records.

2. Fastest player to score 20 Premier League goals 

Haaland bagged 20 goals in the league in just fourteen EPL games, which is the fewest games in the league.

Of course, Bundesliga players do struggle in England, like Sancho, Havertz, and others. However, Erling is totally different.

3. Fastest player to score 30 Premier League 

In just 27 games in the league, Haaland scored 30 league goals for Manchester City, as he keeps enjoying his time under Pep Guardiola.

Apparently, the Norwegian goal-machine usually scores for fun, meaning he’s expected to break more records.

4. Fastest player to score 30 UEFA Champions League goals 

Not even Mbappe, Cristiano Ronaldo, or Lionel Messi come close to this particular record in the UCL.

In just 25 appearances, Erling scored 30 UCL goals, having been the fastest player to achieve the feat in the competition’s history.

5. Player with fewest games to score 30 goals for Pep Guardiola

Surprisingly, it took Haaland just 26 games to score 30 goals for the Spanish gaffer, even though he arrived this campaign.

Pep Guardiola has obviously managed many brilliant players, like Messi, Lewandowski, and others. But none scored 30 goals in 26 matches.

6. Fastest player to score 20 UEFA Champions League goals

In the midst of the star players in the competition, Erling is the player with the fewest games to register 20 UCL goals.

The Norwegian goal-machine scored twenty goals in the competition in just 14 games. He keeps proving his haters wrong.

7. Fastest player to score 4 Premier League hat-tricks

Haaland’s goal-scoring prowess is somewhat unreal, it took him just 19 games to register 4 hat-tricks in the Premier League.

This is a record Cristiano Ronaldo couldn’t achieve during his time at Manchester United.

8. Player with most goals for Manchester City in a season

Obviously, Erling has now taken over Sergio Agüero’s legacy at the Etihad Stadium, as he continues to score goals.

So far, so good, the Norwegian has now scored 45 goals for Manchester City, the most for the club in a single season.

9. Premier League player with most goals in a single campaign

As a result of his goal against Bayern Munich on Tuesday, Haaland smashed a new record as an EPL player.

The Pep Guardiola’s man has now scored 45 goals across all competitions this season, the most by any Premier League player in a single season.

Mohamed Salah of Liverpool held the record in 2017-2018, with 44 goals. However, Erling took over on Tuesday.

6 more records Erling Haaland Man City could break before the end of the season 

Apparently, the Norwegian goal-machine is enjoying his time under Pep Guardiola, having been the Citizens’ cheat code.

His combination with Kevin De Bruyne is working magic for Manchester City, as they keep flying in all competitions.

With all that being said, Haaland is most likely to take over another six records before the 2022-2023 season ends.

1. Most UEFA Champions League goals in a season for an English club

Ruud van Nistelrooy holds the record, as he scored 12 UCL goals for Manchester United in a single season.

However, Haaland is currently on 11 UCL goals with Manchester City, which means he actually took over the record.

The Norwegian has broken more than three records of Van Nistelrooy, even though the Dutchman is the Red Devils’ legend.

Erling may equal the particular record in the second-leg, when they face Bayern Munich at Allianz Arena.

2. Most goals in a single Premier League season

This is another league record that is very much breakable for the former Borussia Dortmund star player.

Having joined the Citizens this season, Haaland has already scored 30 goals for Manchester City in the 2022-2023 campaign.

Meanwhile, the feat belongs to Andy Cole and Alan Shearer, as they both scored 34 EPL goals in a single campaign.

Erling Haaland needs just five goals to take over the record, and he will be able to achieve a new feat in the league.

3. Most UEFA Champions League goals in a single season

Of course, the Norwegian star boy is currently on 11 UCL goals for Manchester City in the 2022-2023 campaign.

Mr. UEFA Champions League, Cristiano Ronaldo, holds the record for the most goals in a single campaign.

The Al Nassr’s magnifico scored 17 goals in a UCL campaign, meaning Haaland needs more goals to smash the record.

This may be a little bit difficult to achieve, because he may not be able to score six goals in the semi-finals and final.

4. Most goals in a UEFA Champions League knockout stage

Erling Haaland Man City has now scored 6 UCL knock-out stage goals, including his goal against Bayern Munich on Tuesday.

However, Cristiano Ronaldo (10) and Karim Benzema (10) held the record for most goals at that stage of the competition.

Even though the Portuguese is already out of Europe, the Frenchman is still playing for Real Madrid.

Nevertheless, the record is somewhat achievable for Erling, because he can make it happen before the final.

5. Most goals in a top flight English league season

Surprisingly, Dixie Dean held this particular record, as he scored 60 goals in a top flight Premier League campaign.

However, Pep Guardiola’s man is currently on 30 goals, which means he needs another thirty to smash the record.

Haaland is somehow unpredictable when it comes to scoring goals, he obviously has the ability to make it happen.

Regardless, it won’t be an easy road for him because it remains just 8 games in the Premier League this season.

6. Most goals across all competitions in a single season in Europe’s top-5 leagues

As expected, Erling may go for another Messi’s record before the end of the 2022-2023 campaign in May.

Lionel Messi (73) held the record for the most goals in all competitions in a single European League campaign.

Meanwhile, Haaland has now scored 45 goals, meaning he needs more goals to take over the Argentine captain.

Messi’s 73 goals in a single season have been unbreakable for many campaigns. However, Erling may try before the season ends.
