Erling Haaland of Manchester City has surpassed Andrew Cole’s record of 65 games to become the fastest player in Premier League history to score 50 goals.

Erling Haaland Goal

Thanks to a Nathan Aké assist, Haaland scored his first goal with his left foot in the 27th minute of City’s Premier League encounter against Liverpool on Saturday. This was Haaland’s 48th appearance overall.

It was Haaland’s 18th goal this season in 20 appearances across all competitions.

The 23-year-old leads a star-studded group of attackers in terms of fastest reaching 50, with Alan Shearer (66), Ruud van Nistelrooy (68), Fernando Torres, and Mohamed Salah (72) trailing behind.

Given his skill in front of goal, Haaland had appeared likely to attain this objective for some time. His 36 goals in his debut Premier League season set a record for most goals in a single season.

The Norway international made an instant impression upon joining City from Borussia Dortmund in 2022 and was an essential part of the squad that won the FA Cup, the Premier League, and the Champions League the previous season to complete the historic triple.

It will now be Haaland’s ambition to catch Shearer before he scores 100 goals. It took the all-time best scorer in the Premier League 124 games to achieve his century.

Trent Alexander-Arnold’s second-half equalizer against Liverpool sealed a 1-1 draw for the team.

Man City in Premier League

“There is so much to be proud of,” says Pep.

For the first time this season, Manchester City lost ground at home under manager Pep Guardiola’s watch.

This is the first time an away team has escaped defeat at the Etihad since Everton in December 2022.

“Very good performance. We performed really well against a very good, outstanding squad, Guardiola said.

Every aspect of our play, including the back and our build-up with the keeper, was excellent.

We only let up two shots on goal, which is commendable given our style of play.

Erling is a talented player, and it was a pretty impressive finish.

Jurgen Klopp, the manager of Liverpool, responded to a point made against the reigning champions.

Jota and Alisson have both been hit, he said, but the Reds will have to wait to learn the full extent of their injuries.

“It’s a difficult place to be, to be honest, but this is a great time.” Klopp said.

The fact that they triumph in so many home games is not by accident. You have to be prepared to suffer in this area.

They are so good and so mobile that they really know exactly who is going where.

“We’re still learning, but I believe we might have won tonight if we had played better. We played well, but we didn’t.

The issue was that while we felt more at their happy times, we didn’t feel as wonderful during ours.

We had to push and extend ourselves once again and go out and give it a real go because you could see it in the body language in the first half.

“This is a good outcome for us.”

Haaland set a record, although he was close to a hat-trick.

Andrew Cole’s previous record of 65 games is smashed by fifty Premier League goals in 48 games.

However, Haaland had a chance to score three goals against Liverpool.

Are those points going to be expensive in May?

At last, City will be played at home.

To keep up with the reigning champions, Liverpool had to exert significant effort.

With a game remaining, Manchester United and leaders City are separated by just eight points at the top of the Premier League.
