Chelsea legend Joe Cole has tipped Erling Haaland to score 1000 goals after the Manchester City striker scored yet another goal in the 3-0 victory over Bayern Munich.

Haaland’s goal against Bayern Munich is his 45th goal in all competitions for Manchester City this season, more than any other Premier League player has ever managed.

“Just ridiculous,” Cole said about Haaland’s impressive performance on BT Sport. “His assist [for Bernardo Silva] was outstanding.

“The frightening thing is that he is just going to get better and better. He’s going to become more and more complete.

“I was saying to Rio [Ferdinand] I think he is going to score 1000 goals. He laughed at me.

“But look at the numbers, if he played until his mid 30s and doesn’t get injured [he can do it].”
