Erling Haaland matched 92-year record during Fulham clash

Fulham and Manchester City are currently locked in Premier League action.

Manchester City headed into the game sat 2nd in the Premier League.

However, after their huge win over league leaders Arsenal in midweek, City were just two points off the Gunners with two games in hand before kick-off at Craven Cottage.

As a result, a win over Fulham would see the Sky Blues go top of the PL for the first time in months, until at least Tuesday when Arsenal face Chelsea.

At the time of writing, Manchester City are leading.

Manchester City got off to a dream start as they were awarded a penalty inside the opening two minutes.

Julian Alvarez was fouled by Ream. Erling Haaland stepped up to score the penalty for his 50th goal of the season in all competitions.

He also equaled the record for most goals scored by one player in a single top-flight season, with the last player to reach that milestone doing so back in 1931:
