Manchester City striker Erling Haaland became the fastest player to net 50 goals in the Premier League.

The Norwegian achieved this feat in 48 games, breaking Andy Cole’s 50 goal record in 65 games.

Cole recorded majority of those strikes during his last few seasons at Newcastle United before he reached 50 Premier League goals after joining Man United in January 1995.

However the interesting fact about Cole’s record is that the Englishman reached his 50 Premier League goal milestone without a single penalty while Haaland had a couple of penalties aiding his journey to the feat.

Due to the circumstances, Fans on X reacted.

George. “Andy Cole bagging 50 goals in 65 games with ZERO penalties is not spoken about enough…”

Sic_AA: “Better than Haaland tbf.”

Gabriel’s Hustle: “Man is so underrated.”

Nzigi “I wonder why though. That’s massive.”
