Erling Haaland surpassed entire Man United squad in key Premier League stat after winner vs Fulham

Yet another remarkable statistic surrounding the goalscoring endeavours of Manchester City star Erling Haaland has come to the fore late on Saturday evening.

Norwegian international Haaland, of course, has taken his place centre stage in the headlines once more over the course of the day to date.

This comes after the summer arrival at the Etihad added to his tally for the campaign during a Premier League meeting with Fulham.

With a full five minutes of injury time on the clock, and Man City locked in a stalemate with the plucky Cottagers in Manchester, a foul on Kevin De Bruyne afforded Haaland the chance to establish himself as the hero yet again, on this occasion from 12 yards.

And the Norwegian, in turn, dully obliged, slotting an admittedly weak spot-kick beyond the clutches of Bernd Leno to spark chaotic celebrations around the Etihad.

Haaland’s latest goal, however, did not only prove significant in guiding Pep Guardiola’s men back to the summit of the English top-flight.

In addition, it came as a noteworthy one from an individual perspective.

Across just 12 appearances in the Premier League thus far this season, the prolific hitman has now racked up an eye-watering 18 goals.

This, incredibly, is one more than city rivals Manchester United have managed as a collective unit (17).
