Erling Haaland breaking Premier League’s most goal scoring record in a single season is going to be down the wire

Erling Haaland is the goal machine that keeps up his standard and continues to tear apart record after record following his blistering start to the Premier League for Man City.

After becoming the highest goalscorer for Man City in a Premier League season, Haaland now chasing after on most goals scored in a single season as he is on his course to break the record Allan Shearer and Andy Cole held for so long.

In the 1993/1994 season, Andy Cole played for Newcastle United and set a new record after scoring a total of 34 goals as the Magpies finished third and qualified for the UEFA Champions League.

During the 1994/1995 season, Shearer equaled Cole as the record for the most goals scored in a single Premier League season, scoring a total of 34 goals for Blackburn Rovers.

However, 22 teams competed in the Premier League back then, the duo had a chance to participate in a total of 42 games but later two teams were reduced and each team has 38 games to play for everything.

Salah set a new record for the most goals scored in a 38-game season, scoring a total of 32 goals in the 2017/18 season as the Egyptian announced himself and helped Liverpool to finish fourth.

Haaland is on now 27 goals with 13 games yet to be played and the way he is going, it is just a matter of time to smash the record barring any injuries.

Haaland already has four hattricks to his name and the goal-scoring sensation is in tremendous form for the defending champions with a record in front of him to be broken, the Norwegian will be unstoppable.
