Manchester City striker Erling Haaland has become the fastest player to reach 50 goals in Premier League history.

Haaland achieved this feat in just 48 games, 17 games faster than the previous record holder Andrew Cole in 1994.

The Norwegian striker leads the Premier League goal chart this season after netting a whopping 36 goals last season for City claiming the record of the most goals in a Premier League season by a player.

Our hitman has banged 14 goals so far this season in just 13 league appearances including a hat-trick against Fulham in September.

Adding to his tally, Haaland recently netted his 20th away goal in the Premier League in just 24 matches, becoming the fastest player to reach that milestone.
