Haaland, Ronaldo, Mbappe: The 20 players with the most goals after 75 games

Manchester City striker Erling Haaland celebrates

Erling Braut Haaland continued his insane run of goalscoring form in last Sunday’s Manchester derby.

The ponytailed striker scored yet another hat-trick as City demolished bitter rivals United 6-3 at the Etihad Stadium.

Haaland has now scored a whopping 14 Premier League goals in 2022/23, which is only nine fewer than the Golden Boot-winning totals recorded by Heung-min Son and Mohamed Salah last season.

The 22-year-old has made goalscoring look way too easy over the past two-and-a-half years and it’s scary to think how many records he’s going to break during the course of his professional career.

Haaland sets record for most goals after 75 league games

One new achievement Haaland can now boast about is his historic goal return after 75 appearances in Europe’s top leagues.

In that timeframe, no player has scored more times and the Norwegian is also the only man to average more than a goal per game.

The stats boffins over at PopFoot have provided all the details, with both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo absent from their 20-man list.

What’s Haaland’s goal record in the Champions League and with Norway?

On top of his outrageous numbers in league action, Haaland has thrived in both the Champions League and on the international stage.

In Europe’s top-tier competition with City, Borussia Dortmund and Red Bull Salzburg, the 22-year-old has scored 26 goals in just 21 appearances.

And with Norway’s national team, Haaland has made the net bulge on 21 occasions in 23 games.

The phrase ‘he was born to score goals’ is a bit overused in the footballing world, but when it comes to Haaland, the description could not be more accurate.
