‘Monster’ Elling Holland stepped on the ‘English Premier League (EPL) 30 goals in a single season’ notice. This is a record achieved 5 years after the 2017-18 season.
Manchester City defeated Southampton 4-1 in the 30th round of the EPL in the 2022-23 season held at St Mary’s Stadium in Southampton, England at 1:30 am (Korean time) on the 9th. With this, 2nd place Man City has 67 points (21 wins, 4 draws, 4 losses, 75 goals, 27 losses).
Southampton, desperate to get out of last place, and Man City, desperate to recapture the lead, met. The home team, Southampton, formed an attacking line with the combination of Kamaldin Sulemana, Carlos Alcaras and Theo Walcott. The visiting team, along with Haaland, who returned from injury, started Jack Grealish, Ilkay Gundogan, Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez to try to score.
It was a one-sided match. City took the lead at the end of the first half thanks to a Haaland header after a De Bruyne cross. In the 13th minute of the second half, Grealish, who succeeded in breaking the line, shook the net after two shots and scored an additional goal, widening the gap.
Holland peaked. In the 23rd minute of the second half, he completed a multi-goal by finishing a Grealish cross with a fantastic bicycle kick. In the remaining time, Man City conceded a chase goal, but replaced Julian Alvarez’s penalty kick (PK) to score a wedge. 먹튀검증
In the end, the match ended with Manchester City’s great victory, and Haaland was in the spotlight by scoring his 29th and 30th goals in the league. It is hard to believe that his EPL debut season is showing tremendous decisiveness. Haaland also spurred the competition for the Golden Boot (top scorer).
A meaningful record was completed. Haaland stepped on the ‘EPL single season 30 goals’ notice. The value is even greater as it has been reached in five years following Mohamed Salah (32 goals) during the 2017-18 season.
Holland challenges a new history. Andy Cole (Man Utd) and Alan Shearer (Blackburn), who hold the ‘EPL single season most goals (34 goals)’, are ahead of the record. With 9 games remaining until the end of the season, there is a high possibility that they will change their pace enough so far.
