Erling Haaland’s current Premier League stats vs past Premier League Golden Boot winners
Erling Haaland is truly a piece of incredible talent and strength. He has proved his worth in the Premier League, not to mention he proved his haters wrong about him not being able to play in the English league.
Haaland has scored 22 goals for Manchester City in the PL which is absolutely insane in terms of a debut season with any club. His current goalscoring numbers would have already won him the Golden Boot in seven seasons.
Let’s go through all those top goalscorers (Golden Boot winners) of these seven Premier League seasons.
Some Premier League Golden Boot Winners
- 1992-93: Teddy Sherigham (22)
- 1997-98: Chris Suffon, Dion Dublin, Michael Owen (18)
- 1998-99: Michael Owen, Dwight Yorke, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink (18)

- 2018-19: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane (22)
- 2022-23: Erling Haaland (22, Halfway through the season)
If he continues to score like this, Haaland will surely score more than 40 goals this season. Achieving this feat will make him ‘the player with most goals scored in one Premier League season’.
The record for the most goals scored in a single Premier League season is held by Alan Shearer who scored 345 goals in 1994-95 season.

World Cup winner Julian Alvarez has revealed what has surprised him most about the Norwegian striker and how he helps him become better.
“I always say that beyond being a great player he’s a great person who always tries to help me. As a player he’s been showing how good he is for a while now with all of the goals he’s scored, not just here at Manchester City but also his former clubs.
“What surprised me about him was his mentality, he wants more and more every day, and also for his height he’s so strong, quick, intelligent and decisive in front of goal. He’s decisive for the team so I try to learn from him every day and to see what I can take from him, playing with the best always helps you. I’m yet to play alongside him so I’m trying to prepare myself so that I can play as a lone striker or with him, whatever it may be, and just give my all.”
