Man City’s history has been surpassed by Erling Haaland in terms of scoring the most goals in a single season in the Premier League.
Erling Haaland’s importance in Man City’s quest for the league title
Erling Haaland made history by scoring his 27th goal of the season for Manchester City against Bournemouth. This is more than any other Manchester City player has scored in a single season in the Premier League. The previous record was held by Sergio Aguero, who scored 26 goals in the 2014-2015 season. Despite not being one of Haaland’s most spectacular goals, his close-range finish put Manchester City 2-0 ahead of Bournemouth, a crucial victory in their quest for the league title.
Haaland’s impressive form this season has seen him score 27 goals in 24 league games, putting him on course to break Aguero’s record for a single season. Aguero scored his 26 goals in 33 games, an outstanding achievement in its own right. Manchester City faced a tough challenge from relegation-threatened Bournemouth, but Haaland’s goal helped secure the much-needed win, especially after Arsenal’s earlier victory against Leicester.
While Haaland will undoubtedly have his sights set on the Premier League Golden Boot, his primary objective is to help Manchester City win the league title. With Arsenal leading the table and looking like serious contenders, Guardiola’s team will need Haaland’s goals if they are to overtake them.
