Erling Haaland has already hit century record after another Man City goal vs Wolves

3 mins read

Erling Haaland has scored 100 goals in the 99 games he has played since he left Red Bull Salzburg in January 2020. The 22-year-old added to his impressive record during Manchester City’s 3-0 win over Wolves at the Molineux, netting his side’s second of the game for what was his 14th of the season so far. 

Haaland has set the Premier League’s scoring charts alight since he joined the Sky Blues from Borussia Dortmund this summer. Two hat tricks in as many games against Crystal Palace and Nottingham Forest were particularly eye-catching moments. He is averaging a goal every 52 minutes and has broken a range of goalscoring records along the way. 

He has already broken the record for most goals scored in his first five Premier League games, bagging nine over the period. He is also the first City player to score in his domestic and European debut. 

His goal against Wolves also saw him break the record for most goals scored in the first seven Premier League matches, breaking the long-standing feat set by then Coventry striker Mick Quinn in 1992. Interestingly, it also equalled the record of goals scored after ten games.

“We all wanted to hit the ground running this season, so winning four games out of five was a great start for us in what is the most challenging competition in the world.

“I am happy to have played my part by scoring goals. Hopefully, I can continue to support the team… and carry on our strong start to the season.”

It remains to be seen whether or not Haaland will continue his goalscoring form but given how well he is currently playing it seems likely that more records could tumble at his feet.
