Erling Haaland beats Alan Shearer, Sergio Aguero and Fernando Torres on his way to fastest 20 Premier League goals milestone in history.

Erling Braut Haaland is taking the Premier League by storm, scoring at an inconceivable rate, smashing the record for the fastest 20 goals scored by a player following a brace against Leeds at the Ellan Road.

Haaland kicked off the season with two goals against West Ham at London Stadium, followed by back-to-back hat-tricks against Crystal Palace and Nottingham Forest, and currently sitting on three hat-tricks as the latest of them came against the local rivals, Manchester United.

After a sluggish start for Man City in the Community Shield, where he missed a few chances against direct competitor Liverpool, the Norwegian was harshly criticized. Now eventually he shuts them up with his dazzling performance and the technical ability he possesses, everyone must be scared whenever they see him runnings towards them.

His numbers are frightening! He has scored 20 Premier League goals in 14 games, while his closest rival Kevin Philips took 21 games for Sunderland and Fernando Torres scored the same amount of goals in 27 games for Liverpool.

In comparison, Premier League top scorer Alan Shearer had 20 goals in 29 games, followed by Sergio Aguero (30 games), and England captain Harry Kane required 40 games. Haaland is completely insane!

Son and Salah were joint top scorers with 22 goals last season. Well! At his current rate, Haaland will reach 40 goals by March/April. Good luck snatching the Golden Boot from the Norwegian Vikings’.

Even Pep Guardiola couldn’t contain his emotions after previously asserting that he had never seen anything like this before. 
Now, he is even surprised with the fact that Haaland only scored two goals, such is the standard set by the World’s best number nine at the moment.

“We are delighted with how humble he is,” Guardiola told Amazon Prime after the game. “He scored a lot of goals but he could have scored more. He helps us a lot.

“He’s an exceptional guy with his work ethic and professionalism. It’s a great threat to our opponents, having him there.”

Beware of that blonde monster; he’s a nightmare if you are a defender in the Premier League reading this post!
