Erling Haaland is and will always be a phenomenon. The Norwegian has been in super form since the start of the season and he has not lost it after the World Cup break. On the contrary. The 22-year-old super striker continues to break records even now. After yesterday’s victory against Leeds, he is already a new record richer.

In that 1-3 away win, Haaland was already good for two goals, already league goal number 19 and 20 of the season. But the matches that the chunky Norwegian needed to reach this number really appeal to the imagination: 14 pieces. This makes him the fastest player to score 20 goals in the Premier League.

For comparison: names like Ruud van Nistelrooy and Diego Costa both needed ‘no less than’ 26 matches for this. The man from whom Haaland beats the record, Kevin Phillips, had enough with 21 matches.

Haaland is also doing better than father Alfie, who scored a total of 18 times for three different Premier League clubs. Although he did that in 181 duels.
