In addition to breaking EPL scoring records, Erling Haaland is going to obliterate them.

In just 11 games this season in the English Premier League, Erling Haaland has scored 17 goals. It indicates that the Norwegian is likely to break several of the division’s goalscoring records. Alan Shearer declared that his record of 34 goals in a season was really in jeopardy. Morning Brew is read by more than 3 million people; you should too! Thank you for registering! Even though the English Premier League season is still in its early stages, Erling Haaland is already well on his way to becoming the league’s all-time leading scorer.

The 22-year-old striker, who transferred from German club Borussia Dortmund to Manchester City in the summer, has 17 goals in just 11 games this season, including two goals against Brighton in a 3-1 victory on Saturday.

In the early part of this season, he scored hat tricks in three straight home matches against Crystal Palace, Nottingham Forest, and Manchester United, setting a Premier League record.

Despite his fantastic start to the 2021–22 season, Haaland is only six goals short of matching the EPL’s top scorers from the previous campaign, Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah and Tottenham Hotspur’s Son Heung-min, who both scored 23 goals.

What’s more incredible is that the Norwegian is now more than halfway to Salah’s 2017–18 record of 32 goals in 38 matches in the English Premier League. Additionally, he’s halfway to matching the record of 34 goals for a 42-game EPL season held by Andrew Cole and Alan Shearer.

Haaland will match Salah’s record by game 21 and break it by game 22 if he continues to score at his current rate of 1.55 goals per game.

He’ll end the season with 59 goals, which would be a record for a single season not just in the English Premier League but also in all of European soccer.

That record is now held by Lionel Messi. In 2011–12, he scored 50 goals for FC Barcelona in La Liga, the top division in Spain.

Naturally, it seems absurd to think that Haaland will score at the same rate for the remaining 27 games. But his performance for his previous teams says he can.

Haaland started his career with Bryne in his native Norway before switching to Molde FK at the age of 16, where he would score 20 goals in 50 games.

In just one year after joining Austrian team RB Salzburg in January 2019, he scored 29 goals, including five hat tricks and six goals in the Champions League. This performance led Borussia Dortmund to approach him right before the new year.

Haaland scored 86 goals in 89 games for Dortmund despite dealing with injury issues during the final of his two-and-a-half seasons in Germany.
Haaland has a very strong scoring record for his nation, having scored 21 goals in 23 games.

He has scored 198 goals in 238 matches for club and country combined, and he is only 22 years old. To put that into perspective, consider that by the time they turned 22, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, the two top scorers in soccer history, had scored 60 and 92 goals, respectively.

Haaland is supported by some of the greatest players in EPL history to shatter the records held by Salah, Shearer, and Cole given his absurd record of scoring goals.

He might be the best Premier League player ever, don’t you think? Following Haaland’s triple trick against Manchester United in September, former Chelsea FC and England captain John Terry had this to say about him.

“I’ve never seen a youngster so young with that passion to score the goals he’s scored. You’re trying to compare him to someone.
He simply never gives up.
Earlier this month, Haaland received similar praise from Jamie Carragher, a former Liverpool FC and England defender.

Carragher remarked, “He just looks absolutely beautiful.” We know we have a great player in the league, but I believe we have something really, very exceptional where, after he leaves Man City or the Premier League, we’ll be talking about him alongside Thierry Henry.

I genuinely believe that this kid will end up being the best Premier League player we’ve ever seen. He’s really remarkable, and he’s off to a great start.

Haaland has Shearer’s support in his quest to surpass his own record.

the Englishman, , who has 260 goals in the EPL, warned earlier this month that his record of 34 goals in a season is “seriously threatened.” If he keeps himself in shape, he’s breaking it,
