It might be something of a understatement to say that Erling Haaland is very good at putting the ball in the back of the net, and the records the striker has already broken this season with Manchester City proves just that.

The 22-year-old has been in the Premier League for just over a month, and it feels like every game the Norwegian striker has blown some record out of the water in stunning fashion, with Haaland setting new achievements in both the Premier League and UEFA Champions League.

Despite playing just nine games this season in all competitions, Haaland has broken no less than 11 records since joining City as we head into the international break, so let’s delve into what the former Borussia Dortmund star has actually done this campaign.

To make it a bit more manageable, this feature has been split into three sections that categorise Haaland’s records this season from City, the Premier League and the Champions League, which still doesn’t quite fit the full picture of the attacker’s accolades.

Haaland’s records for his new club seems to be a good place start, and boy, has the 22-year-old hit some impressive feats with the Manchester giants already, namely beating Sergio Aguero and Micky Quinn’s record of eight goals in five top-flight games, with the Scandinavian bagging nine.

As well as besting City’s greatest ever goalscorer in Aguero, Haaland this season became the first player from the blue half of Manchester to score both on their Premier League debut as well as their Champions League debut.

To cap off the records for City, Haaland bagged 10 league goals in just six appearances, making him the fastest Cityzen, as well as Premier League player, to hit double digits in the English top-flight.

Breaking records with Manchester City is one thing, but to shatter accolades in the Premier League is another, with Haaland doing just that on more than one occasion this season, such as the fewest matches to score two league hat-tricks, a record the striker demolished in just five games, beating the previous record held by Demba Ba at 21.

Haaland also broke Quinn’s record of most Premier League goals in seven matches, with the striker bagging his 11th of the season against Wolves this weekend, with the attacker, in doing so, also becoming the first player in the division to score in their first four away fixtures.

Indeed, Haaland’s nine goals in five appearances means the attacker holds this unique record in both the Premier League and the Bundesliga, with the forward bagging eight for Borussia Dortmund.

One record Haaland didn’t break but likely will in the months to come is that of the most Premier League goals scored in a single month, with former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez still holding that accolade with his 10 goals back in December 2013.

Manchester City’s main inspiration for signing Haaland was the attacker’s incredible record in the Champions League, the final piece of silverware Pep Guardiola is yet to win with the Premier League side, and to the surprise of nobody, the English giants look strong favourites to win the competition with their new no. 9.

Two matches have only been played in the Champions League but that hasn’t stopped Haaland from breaking a plethora of records, with the forward’s winner against former side Dortmund setting two new accolades.

The attacker became the youngest player to score for and against the same team in Champions League in the German giants as well as put his tally in the competition overall, to 25, making Haaland the fastest player to reach this milestone.

His 25th goal in the Champions League also signalled Haaland’s claim as the player with the most goals in the competition in their first 20 appearances, beating the previous record of 16 held by former Manchester United star Ruud van Nistelrooy and Tottenham striker Roberto Soldado.
