The Manchester City forward has reached 35 goals, the highest mark in a single edition of the competition
On Wednesday, Erling Haaland broke the record for goals in one edition of the English Premier League. The Manchester City forward scored against West Ham and reached 35 goals in 2022/23, surpassing the previous highs scored by Andy Cole (1993/94, for Newcastle) and Alan Shearer (Blackburn Rovers, 1994/95), both with 34.
In the end, he admitted that it was a “special night and moment.” “I am so happy and proud. Honestly, I don’t know what to say. Of course I was aware of the record [de golos]But we tried to create goalscoring opportunities and it wasn’t easy because they wanted to defend. We struggled in the first half but then they finished it off. I spoke to Jack [Grealish] Before the match he said to me that he wanted to help achieve the goal that would break the record. Goal? The ball came out perfect, I didn’t think I’d score with a hat but the opportunity was there and I took it,” said the Norway international.
“I’ve never seen anything like this before. It was great to score that goal, as always. It hurt when everyone in the honor guard beat me.”
Dixie Dean scored (60 goals, absolute maximum in the Premier League)
“I’m not thinking about it now. I’ll sleep thinking about the game, wake up tomorrow and then try to get the three points against Leeds. It won’t be easy with the new manager.”
“I can’t keep thinking about all these records or my head will explode. I’ll go home and play video games, eat and sleep. Tomorrow I’ll start thinking about Leeds.”
The video game you’re currently playing:
“I can’t say, it would be so embarrassing.”
Would you trade all goals for the triple?
“Yes, yes. That’s the most important thing. Everyone knows it’s possible, but we can’t think of winning a cup final now. Now we just have to think about Leeds. All the last nine games to the end are like a cup final.”
