Manchester City striker Erling Haaland has been backed to score 60 goals for the club after his brilliant start to the season.

Haaland has scored 10 Premier League goals already in just 6 Premier League games for Manchester City.

Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva believes it is not ridiculous to suggest Haaland could reach a half-century or beyond by the end of his debut season.

Asked how many goals he feels are within reach for the Norway international, Bernardo Silva said: “I hope 50 or 60. By Christmas! He is so good, so quick and so strong. His hunger for goals, he always wants more and to have a striker like him in our team is just great.

“In the last two games he was unbelievable and I hope he continues this way.”

“You can see in his face the way he wants to score, how aggressive he is inside the box and that is great to have in the box,” Bernardo added.
