Erling Haaland has won the 2022-2023 Premier League golden boot with a record 36 goals. He broke the previous record of 35 goals, set by Alan Shearer in 1995-1996.
Haaland scored 36 goals in 35 games, for a goals-per-game ratio of 1.03. He also had 12 assists in the league. Haaland’s goalscoring exploits helped Manchester City win the Premier League title.
Haaland is the first player to win the Premier League golden boot in his debut season since Mohamed Salah in 2017-2018. He is also the youngest player to win the award, at the age of 22.
Haaland’s goalscoring record is all the more impressive considering that he missed two months of the season due to injury. He also had to deal with a change of manager, as Pep Guardiola replaced Roberto Mancini in December.
Despite the challenges, Haaland was able to consistently find the back of the net. He scored 12 goals in his first 10 games for Manchester City, and he never went more than three games without scoring.
Haaland’s goalscoring ability is undeniable. He is a powerful striker with a clinical finishing touch. He is also good in the air and he is a threat from set pieces.
Haaland’s arrival at Manchester City has transformed the team. They were already one of the best teams in the Premier League, but Haaland has taken them to another level. He has helped them to score more goals and to win more games.
Haaland is a special talent and he is sure to be one of the best strikers in the world for many years to come. His goalscoring record in the Premier League is a testament to his ability, and he will be looking to add to his tally next season.
