Without the Norwegian star, Erling Haaland, his name was written in golden letters in the Premier League records alone with the absolute record for the number of goals scored in one season in the league, by scoring his 35th goal and the second for his team Manchester City 2-0 in the 71st minute.
Halland broke the previous record, which he set in a season of 42 stages instead of the current formula (38), by Andy Cole with Newcastle in the 1993-1994 season and Alan Shearer with Blackburn in the following season (34 goals each).
“I don’t think about all these records, I’m going crazy,” Haaland said after the end of the match against West Ham.
“I’ll go home now, play some video games, eat and go to sleep,” he added.
Haaland only needed 31 matches to enter history from its widest gates, and lead his team to the top with 79 points, one point ahead of Arsenal, with another postponed match in his arsenal, making him the favorite to retain the title.
The 22-year-old striker raised the number of his goals in various competitions to 51 this season, becoming the first player to achieve this achievement since 1931.
And we must go back to the 1966-1967 season in order to find the most prolific scorer in one season in the elite, which is Welshman Ron Davis with Southampton (37 goals).
And with the final whistle, Guardiola asked all of his players to salute Haaland in front of his father, the former City player between 2000 and 2003 Alfie, who was in the stands.
The Spanish coach said, “We are very happy for him because it is a pleasure to work with him and be with him, and everyone is happy to have him with us. The record will be broken in the future, perhaps through him.”
And Haaland is still far from the historic record for the number of goals in the English Premier League of all time, which was achieved by the legendary Everton striker Dixie Dean with 60 goals in the 1927-1928 season (42 stages).
