Erling Haaland has quickly cemented himself as one of football’s best current goalscorers and he appears poised to set some new records in 2022/23.
The Norwegian striker has an uncanny ability to find the back of the net and has done so everywhere he’s gone. Now at Manchester City, his team is providing him plenty of opportunities and he’s not missing many of them.
Standing just shy of two metres tall, but with lightning quick speed, Haaland is next to unstoppable in the final third.
At the age of 22, and with so much of his career still to come, the forward looks poised to score many goals and break many more records in the process.
The Sporting News takes a look at his latest goals and records so far with Manchester City.

After last scoring in the Champions League back in October 2022, Haaland exploded for five goals in a Round of 16 second leg match against RB Leipzig at the Etihad.
