Haaland Equals Another Premier League Record. Manchester City striker Erling Haaland has equalled Alan Shearer and Andy Cole’s record for the most goals in a single Premier League campaign.
On Sunday, Haaland made history by scoring a 93-minute penalty against Fulham. It was his 34th league goal, tying him with Shearer and Cole. Over a 42-game season, the retired frontmen scored for Blackburn Rovers (1994/95) and Newcastle United (1993/94).
City won 2-1 at Craven Cottage thanks to Julian Alavez’s second-half goal, pushing them to the top of the Premier League table.
This season, Haaland has 50 goals in 44 games across all competitions. This includes 34 Premier League games, 12 Champions League games, three FA Cup games, and one EFL Cup game.

The Norwegian might still play up to ten games before the season concludes, including six in the Premier League, two or three in the Champions League, and one in the FA Cup.
Dixie Dean holds the record for the most goals scored in a single English football season. In 1927/28, the Everton legend found the back of the goal 63 times.
