Haaland has scored a remarkable 36 league goals in just 35 appearances – breaking a 29-year record for the most strikes across a Premier League campaign.
He has also contributed eight assists as well as helping City to reach the finals of the FA Cup and Champions League to take place in June.
Haaland’s 44 total goal involvements is the joint highest of all-time, equalling a record set by former Arsenal forward Thierry Henry in the 2002/03 season.
Ripples Nigeria recalls that Haaland had already claimed the 2023 Football Writers’ Association Footballer of the Year award, earning more than 80% of the vote in the process.
