Erling Haaland Has Scored 63 Premier League Goals

The Premier League is one of the toughest divisions to be in for center-forwards. From low-blocking teams to tough-as-nails center-backs, the league has it all, making it difficult for strikers to find the back of the net. Of course, the statement above does not ring true for Erling Haaland, who has turned the Premier League Golden Boot race into an unfair contest. In only two seasons, the Norwegian striker scored 63 times in the English top flight, playing only 66 games. The ex-Borussia Dortmund striker also bagged 13 assists along the way.

In his debut season, Haaland won the Golden Boot by scoring a league-record 36 times in 35 games. His exploits also earned him the Player of the Season and the Young Player of the Season awards. In the recently concluded 2023-24 season, he scored 27 goals in 31 games, finishing five goals clear of second-placed Cole Palmer in the Golden Boot rankings.

#3 Kevin De Bruyne: 68 Goals

Raheem Sterling got a lot of flak when he switched from Liverpool to Manchester City in July 2015. Initially, the constant criticism seemingly took a toll on him, as he struggled to live up to expectations. However, it all changed after Pep Guardiola came on board in 2016. Under his tutelage, Sterling became one of the most ruthless wingers in the division and helped the club to four Premier League titles. Before leaving for Chelsea in July 2022, Sterling played 225 league matches for Man City, scoring 91 times.

Overall, Sterling featured in 339 matches for Manchester City during his seven-year stay, scoring 131 times and providing 73 assists.
