SINGAPORE — Will Erling Haaland become the all-time leading goalscorer in the English Premier League (EPL)? At the rate it’s going, all bets are off.

In his first season in England, the Manchester City striker has already scored 14 goals in just eight league games – with a staggering three hat-tricks in consecutive home games – and it seems that no one will be able to stop this terrifying Manchester United player. 22 years. grabbing goal after goal.

Haaland has 247 more goals to go before he can surpass Alan Shearer’s all-time record of 260 EPL goals, but can he reach the magic mark of 50 goals in all competitions this season?

“If he keeps scoring hat-tricks until the end of the season, he’ll hit that mark, but I think sooner or later he’ll have to slow down,” said Zee Ko, an Arsenal fan and editor of zujuGP. “But watching him right now, it gives you goosebumps. He seems like a different type of player than everyone else in the league.”

No player has ever reached that mark in the Premier League era of English football. In fact, since the English football league was launched way back in 1888, only one player has reached that mark: Everton’s Dixie Dean, who scored an astonishing 60 goals in the 1927/28 English First Division season.

In the 1986/87 season, Tottenham’s Clive Allen came within a goal of reaching the 50-goal mark, although his 49 goals came in all competitions, including the League Cup and FA Cup. In the 22-team English First Division, he scored 33 goals in 42 games.

In most recent memory, Shearer scored 34 goals in the 1994/95 EPL season to lead his Blackburn side to their only Premier League title. So did Andy Cole for Newcastle United in the 1993/94 season, but both he and Shearer took 42 games to reach that mark, as the league still had 22 teams at the time.

For a 38-game EPL season, the record for most goals scored in a single season was set by Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah in his magical first season with the Merseyside club. The Egyptian scored 32 league goals and 44 goals in all competitions.

So the stage is set for Haaland, who is at an unprecedented goal poaching rate this season. Will he be able to keep it up all season long, without scoring dips or untimely injuries? All eyes are on him.
