Erling Haaland: Manchester City striker sets Premier League record vs Liverpool

Erling Haaland scores his 50th Premier League goal, breaking the record, and leading Manchester City to a 1-1 draw with Liverpool.

Erling Haaland has once again made history, becoming the fastest player to score 50 Premier League goals with his goal in Manchester City's 1-1 draw with Liverpool. Haaland has not only broken the previous record, but shattered it, reaching the milestone in just 48 league games. This is a remarkable achievement, with the previous record holders, Andrew Cole and Alan Shearer, needing 65 and 66 games respectively to reach 50 goals. Since joining City from Borussia Dortmund last summer, Haaland has consistently found the back of the net, scoring 36 goals in the Premier League last season, the most in a single campaign. His impressive goal-scoring record has continued this season, with 14 goals, putting him four ahead of Mohamed Salah. Haaland's goal-scoring prowess is further highlighted by his average of 1.13 goals per game this season, along with his league-high 43 shots, 67% of which have been on target. Haaland's goal-scoring record across the big five European leagues since the start of last season is unmatched, with 50 goals in 48 matches, putting him ahead of Harry Kane and Kylian Mbappe. What is most striking about Haaland's goals is their consistency, with 48 of his 50 goals coming from inside the box, 33 with his left foot, six with his right, and 10 headers. His landmark goal against Liverpool further exemplifies his ability, as he scored with a left-footed strike from inside the area. Haaland has scored against 20 of the 21 Premier League opponents he has faced, with only Brentford managing to keep him out. Notably, he has scored five goals against Manchester United and Fulham. While Haaland's goal-scoring prowess is undeniable, Manchester City's form has been less consistent this season. Despite starting the weekend at the top of the table, they were unable to secure a win against Liverpool, following a chaotic 4-4 draw with Chelsea before the international break. Guardiola expressed his pride in his team's performance, despite dropping two points, while Klopp was satisfied with the point, acknowledging that Liverpool is still in a process. Both managers highlighted the strength of the opposition and the challenges they faced in the match. Overall, Haaland's remarkable goal-scoring record and Manchester City's performance against Liverpool have set the stage for an exciting season in the Premier League.
