Prolific Norwegian striker Erling Haaland broke the English Premier League scoring record with his 35th goal of the season when his log-leading Manchester City beat West Ham United 3-0 on Wednesday night at the Etihad Stadium.
Haaland already passed Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah for the most Premier League goals in a 38-game season with five league games remaining.
Incredible. Hes just 22 and still has five games left, City manager Pep Guardiola said.
Andy Cole and Alan Shearers now-former record for goals in a 42-game season was 34.
We expected him to score goals but to break Cole and Shearer records hes special, said Guardiola after the victory against the Hammers.
