Haaland Breaks EPL Record To Aid Man City Beat West Ham

Erling Haaland

Norwegian striker Erling Haaland broke the record for the most goals in a single Premier League season with his 35th goal of the campaign as Manchester City moved back to the top of the Premier League table.

The Citizens claimed a 3-0 win against West Ham United at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday.

The hosts had to work hard to break down a resilient West Ham side that held them at bay for much of the first half.

However, City eventually took the lead in the second half when Nathan Ake headed home a free kick from Riyad Mahrez.

Haaland then scored a historic goal in the 70th minute, chipping the ball over the West Ham goalkeeper, Lukasz Fabianski, to surpass the previous record of 34 goals held jointly by Alan Shearer and Andy Cole. Phil Foden added a third goal late on with a superbly-struck volley.

With the win, City moved back to the top of the table with 79 points from 33 games, one point ahead of Arsenal, who had played a game more.

They will extend their lead to four points if they beat Leeds United at home on Saturday.

West Ham, who were without the sick Declan Rice, remain in trouble in 15th place, four points above the relegation zone.

The Hammers put up a strong resistance but were eventually undone by City's firepower.
