Erling Haaland eyes Ballon d’Or after setting Premier League record

By FPL360


Erling Haaland continues to make history in the Premier League, cementing himself as a true goalscoring machine. This season, he has broken the records held by both Andy Cole and Alan Shearer by scoring his 35th Premier League goal in just 31 games. With statistics that show he scores every 71 minutes in the league, Haaland has significantly improved on last season’s Bundesliga record of 0.91 goals per game, now scoring a remarkable 1.13 goals per game in the Premier League. His goalscoring rate has also extended beyond the Premier League, with 51 goals in just 45 games across all competitions and 12 goals in just eight Champions League games, leading the competition in scoring ahead of Mohamed Salah and Kylian Mbappé.

Transfermarkt recently updated the market values of 171 Premier League players, placing Haaland at number one with an estimated market value of €170m. He has shown that he is the missing piece for Manchester City, and recent results indicate that he was not to blame for the team’s previous poor performances. In fact, he played a pivotal role in helping the team reclaim first place from Arsenal, and Manchester City now appears to be cruising towards another Premier League title.

Haaland‘s contributions to the team are evident, and he could help Manchester City finally claim the Champions League title. If they win this tournament, it would cement Pep Guardiola’s legacy not only in England but also in European football. Haaland himself might even be an early contender for the Ballon d’Or award next year. He has already established himself as one of the best no. 9 strikers in the World and has taken over the mantle from Robert Lewandowski.

However, Manchester City‘s success will depend on their ability to beat Real Madrid in the semifinals of the Champions League and then go on to win the title. If they can achieve this feat, there is no doubt that Haaland‘s contributions will have played a crucial role, and Manchester City will have finally found the key to winning this prestigious tournament.
