Manchester City star Erling Haaland continued in his sublime form all through the season as he bagged a goal and an assist in his club’s victory over Bayern Munich last night. 

Haaland has netted 45 goals in 39 games this campaign, the highest for any Premier League player in a season ever and he looks like he isn’t stopping anytime soon. 

The prolific number nine of the Cityzens has been in monstrous form this campaign. He alongside Rodri and Bernardo Silva condemned Bayern Munich to a defeat at the Etihad stadium. 

Erling Haaland is the top scorer in the 2022/23 UEFA Champions League campaign with 11 goals to his name in 7 games played.

The Norwegian had the least touches with 28 of any outfield player who featured for the entire duration of the game but no matter how many touches he gets, his potency rate is unrivaled.

He is eyeing the record held by Cristiano Ronaldo in the 2013/14 season, who scored 17 goals all through the matches he played in that campaign. 

Erling Braut Haaland is also closing in on the record currently being held by Mohammed Salah who netted 32 goals in the 2017/18 Premier League season. 

The former Borussia Dortmund man has scored 30 Premier League goals so far and with a creative force of Kevin De Bruyne, Ilkay Gundogan and Bernardo Silva amongst other assisting him, he is expected to break that record soon. 

Haaland became the quickest player to reach 30 Premier League goals by hitting that mark with a sublime overhead kick in only his 27th game for Manchester City at Southampton.
