Erling Haaland has become the first Manchester City player in over half a century to score in 10 straight games. The feat was last achieved by Billy McAdams in 1957, and the Norwegian has matched the age-old record for the Citizens.
He netted his 20th goal of the season across all competitions by scoring the fourth goal against Southampton. This takes his tally to 15 goals in the Premier League, in only nine games.
Erling Haaland achieves yet another record for Manchester City
The 22-year-old is en route to becoming the Manchester City player with the most hat-tricks in a single season. At the rate at which he is scoring, he could end up with 60+ goals. While the likelihood of that happening is quite low, we just aren’t certain about what the goal machine can achieve anymore.
It was recently revealed that Erling Haaland was the highest-paid player in the Manchester City. And considering the kind of performances he is putting in, it is hardly surprising that he is being compensated as well.
Haaland will have the opportunity to extend the record and make it his own when Manchester City take on Copenhagen in the Champions League on Tuesday.
