Erling Haaland scored his 35th goal on Wednesday as Manchester City defeated West Ham 3-0 at the Etihad Stadium.
After a goalless first half,Nathan Ake opened the scoring with a clinical header from Riyald Mahrez’s free kick early in the second half. Erling Haaland then added the second of the game after 70 minutes, while substitute Phil Foden added the third, although his effort deflected off Emerson Palmieri.
The main topic of the day was Erling Haaland, who broke Andy Cole and Alan Shearer’s record for the most goals scored in a Premier League campaign with 35 and could score more because the season is not over yet.
Speaking after the game, Erling Haaland was happy with the record. “It’s a special night and a special moment.” “It was a nice feeling, like every single goal I score.” Winning the game is also really important. The guard of honor really hurt; they hit me hard on the back!” He said.
