ERLING Haaland Makes History By Breaking Mo Salah's Premier League Goal Record.

Erling Haaland writes his name into the history books, as he breaks another record, becoming the all-time top scorer in a 38-game Premier League season after scoring his 33rd goal of the season in Manchester City's 4-1 win over Arsenal on Wednesday night.

In just his 29th league game of his debut season, Haaland breaks a tie with Liverpool's Mohamed Salah on 32 goals, and now tops the standings, surpassing the Egyptian single-season Premier League goal record.

The Norwegian superstar, put the icing on the cake for Man City against Arsenal in a crucial top-of-the-table clash billed as a title decider. 

The striker scored his team's fourth and final goal deep into stoppage time of a 4-1 victory over the Gunners at the Etihad stadium, courtesy of an assist from Phil Foden.

Having enjoyed an incredible debut season with Pep Guardiola's side since his transfer from Borussia Dortmund last summer, Haaland is now one goal short of the Premier League scoring record of 34 goals, held by Alan Shearer and Andrew Cole, over a 42-game season.

The 22-year-old has 49 goals, 8 assists in just 42 games across all competitions this season, the most ever by a Premier League player since the competition began in 1992 and the most by a top-flight player in England since Clive Allen in 1986-87.

He has been directly involved in 57 goals,  that's 15 more than any other player in Europe's top five leagues, scoring or assisting every 58 minutes on average.

The Man City striker will surely add to his tally before the season ends, as Pep Guardiola's team continues to chase for the treble. 

They still have seven remaining Premier League matches left to play, they will face Real Madrid in the semi-finals of the Champions League in two weeks time, and take on neighbors Manchester United in the FA Cup final on June 3.
