Alan Shearer applauded Erling Holland for breaking his own record.
Manchester City won 3-0 in the 28th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season against West Ham held at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, England at 4 am (Korean time) on the 4th. With this, Manchester City accumulated 79 points from 33 games. Despite playing one game less, they rose to first place with a difference of one point from Arsenal.
Manchester City used a 3-2-4-1 formation. Haaland, Jack Grealish, Bernardo Silva, Julen Alvarez, Riyad Mahrez, Rodri, John Stones, Nathan Ake, Ruben Dias, Kyle Walker and Brian Ortega scrambled.
After the first half ended 0-0, the balance between the two teams was broken in the second half. In the 5th minute of the second half, in the situation of a free kick attack, Ake headed the ball from Mahrez and scored the opening goal. Man City, who was in the mood, scored an extra goal. In the course of counterattacking in the 25th minute of the second half, after receiving a killer pass from Grealish, Holland shook the net with a chip shot in a one-on-one situation with the goalkeeper.
Man City put a wedge in the game. In the 40th minute of the second half, in a corner kick attack, the defense kicked the ball back from Mahrez. Phil Foden, who was waiting for this, kicked the ball with his left foot and succeeded in scoring. With this, Man City won 3-0 and moved one step closer to winning the title.
With this goal, Haaland scored his 35th league goal this season alone. It is the 51st goal in all competitions this season. With this, Haaland broke the EPL record for most goals in a single season. The record for the most goals in the previous EPL season was 34 goals recorded by Andy Cole in the 1993-94 season and Alan Shearer in the 1994-95 season, who played 42 games. After being changed to 38 games, Salah scored 32 goals in the 2017-18 season.메이저사이트
Haaland rewrote history in one season. Already last April, he scored his 33rd league goal against Arsenal, easily surpassing Salah’s record. The scoring streak continued. Haaland scored his 34th league goal against Fulham in the last round, standing shoulder to shoulder with Cole and Shearer, and with that day’s goal, he surpassed them and achieved a new record.
Shearer also congratulated Haaland for breaking the record. He gave his thumbs up on personal social media, saying, “It’s only natural to go to a cooler guy. He’s only 28 years old!!! He’s the best.” Shearer also holds the record for the Premier League’s top scorer with 260 goals. Attention is focusing on whether Holland will be able to surpass this record in the future.
