Manchester City’s Norwegian striker, Erling Haaland, has achieved yet another record as he bagged the most number of goals before the turn of the year in a single Premier League season.
Haaland, on Saturday, latched on to Riyad Mahrez’s pass to slot home his 21st league goal of the 2022-2023 season in the 24th minute. It came in only his 15th appearance in the season, curtailed by FIFA World Cup 2022 break.
However, his goal was not enough to seal a victory for Manchester City as Demarai Gray levelled for Everton in the 64th minute.
Earlier, against Leeds, the 22-year-old became the fastest player to score 20 goals in Premier League history after he scored a brace in an away game. In doing so, he also surpassed his father Alfie Haaland’s career tally of 18 goals in EPL.
However, the draw meant Manchester City would remain second with 36 points, seven points adrift of league topper Arsenal. For Everton it was the end of three straight losses, which understandably eased the pressure on manager Frank Lampard.
