Erling Haaland has won the 2022/23 Premier League Golden Boot, which is given to the player who has scored the most goals during the season.
The Norwegian finished the season with a record-breaking 36 goals, six more than Harry Kane of Tottenham Hotspur.
He becomes City’s third Premier League winner, following Sergio Aguero’s 26-goal haul in 2014/15 and Carlos Tevez’s 20 in 2010/11, which he shared with Dimitar Berbatov.
It adds to Haaland’s incredible collection of records and honors in his first season at City.
The Premier League Player of the Year, Premier League Young Player of the Year, and FWA Footballer of the Year have all been awarded to the 22-year-old.
With his 35th league goal against West Ham earlier this month, Haaland set a new record for most goals in a single season.
That took him past the 34 goals scored by Andrew Cole and Alan Shearer in 1993/94 and 1994/95, when the league had 42 matches per season.
He now has 18 Premier League goals at home, the most any player has ever accomplished at the Etihad Stadium in a single season, thanks to his hat-trick against Wolves in January. He scored 22 league goals for the entire season.
He has six hat-tricks this season, four of which have come in the Premier League.
The three prior to the Wolves game were scored in back-to-back home games against Crystal Palace, Nottingham Forest, and Manchester United.
He became the first player in Premier League history to score a hat-trick in three consecutive home games.
Haaland also broke the previous record for the quickest to four Premier League hat-tricks by an incredible 46 games, taking only 19 games compared to Ruud van Nistelrooy’s previous best of 65.
With nine goals in August—more than any other player had ever scored in a single month—Haaland got off to an exceptional start during his time at City.
Our No.9 has 52 goals in all competitions in his first season at Manchester City, with only the FA Cup and Champions League finals remaining.
He surpassed Mo Salah’s and van Nistelrooy’s best totals of 44 goals in all competitions by becoming the Premier League club’s all-time leading scorer.
