Erling Haaland now holds the record for the most goals scored in a 38-game Premier League season after scoring in the 4-1 victory over Arsenal.

Haaland’s goal against Arsenal takes him to 33 in the league which sees him surpass Mo Salah’s 38-game record. The Egyptian hit 32 in 2017/18.

Andrew Cole and Alan Shearer currently share the record across the entire Premier League era, scoring 34 in 1993/94 and 1994/95 respectively when the season comprised of 42 matches.

With seven league games remaining, Haaland requires just two more goals to have the record outright.

Congratulations to Erling on this latest extraordinary achievement.
