There is something somewhat dull about knowing the identity of the 2022 Golden Boot winner, the only curiosity is the final number of his final tally.

Haaland, with 21 Premier League goals, is six goals clear of Tottenham’s Harry Kane.

Haaland scored 20 goals in a single Premier League season faster than any other player in history… by seven games (Sunderland’s Kevin Phillips did it in 21).

And the later this season goes with his projected current record so far, the fewer shots come with pace markings (especially given that Haaland won’t be beaten in the World Cup, although he would certainly trade a chance for Norway to enter the tournament). And while Haaland is currently outperforming expected goal tally, it’s already becoming clear that projecting him onto a Premier League record isn’t far-fetched at all.

How many records can Haaland break?

Haaland may not be able to score 50 goals given Manchester City’s busy schedule, but the Premier League record is in jeopardy and the figure isn’t entirely absurd.

Mohamed Salah holds the season’s record 38 games with 32 goals for Liverpool in 2017/18, while Newcastle’s Andy Cole and Blackburn’s Alan Shearer scored 34 goals in a 42-game season in the last decade 20th century.

Haaland can also break the single-season goalscoring (goals plus assists) record, including breaking the record with 42 games. Alan Shearer scored 47 of 42 and Thierry Henry set a record in 38 games with 44.

Other records that Haaland could legitimately have broken or broken:

  • 30 Premier League goals in first season (Kevin Phillips, Sunderland, 1999-2000)
  • Goals in 24 different Premier League matches (Salah, Liverpool 2017-18)
  • Most goals scored in a Premier League match (five out of five)
  • 11 Premier League goals in a row (Jamie Vardy, Leicester, 2014-15)

Read on to see the latest Premier League goal totals for the 2022-23 season as Haaland look to earn the Golden Boot in his first season in the Premier League.

Arsenal and Manchester United primp after derby wins.

Chelsea are feeling signs of life and Newcastle feel they belong in any mention of the big boys.

Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur must find a way to give themselves hope.

And Manchester City have to wonder how they can start to look like a team that most analysts refuse to exclude from title discussions, even after losing away in the Manchester derby.

10 things we learned in the Premier League: Week 20

1. Drama on the sidelines: Red Devils come back and win derby (Manchester United 1-2 Manchester City): Listen, by the letter of the law Marcus Rashford May have technically was in the game, but he did not in any way affect the position of Manuel Akanji and City goalkeeper Ederson against United. The fact that Rashford was running towards the goal with the ball almost under his feet certainly interfered with the game and affected the positions of other players. However, United’s game plan was excellent against City and completely baffled the reigning champions. Fred was great as an extra player in midfield as he and Casemiro blocked Kevin De Bruyne and Bruno Fernandes cleared long balls from Rashford’s shots. The whole United team stuck to the plan, with Erik ten Hag replacing his players correctly, with Anthony and Agennadro Garnacho adding more tricks on the counter-attacks in the second half. United are solid defensively and are in incredible form. Surely they are now in this title race. (Japan)

2. History of seasons for Arsenal, Tottenham (Spurs 0-2 Arsenal): “This game showed exactly where Arsenal and Tottenham are this season. For the Gunners, it was all about scoring early and then setting traps for opponents who had to take risks. Then, by controlling the situation, the Gunners no longer make stupid mistakes. This is the plan for their success, and this performance was eerily similar to many of their victories this season. Arsenal are leading in the middle of the table and the only thing that can stop them from winning the championship is injuries and themselves.Tottenham also played the same way as they did all season.Sloppy in the first half and much better in the second half.Antonio Conte’s team cannot continue such games, but the only thing that can really change is the manager, their team is good enough to compete in the top four, but their recent run has wiped out all their good work at the start of the season, and finishes over Manchester United and Newcastle seem unlikely for this moment. (Japan)

3. Sluggish “Liverpool” runs away from the “Seagull” out of bounds (Brighton 3-0 Liverpool): The Reds have excuses due to injuries and busy matches, but they weren’t excuses that Jurgen Klopp would have accepted in previous years (and certainly not against unconventional forces) . Given Liverpool’s expenses, losing by two to Brentford, drawing Wolves and losing to Brighton by three in a row simply shouldn’t happen to this club. This, to be honest, was not close and looked completely uninspired. Given Jurgen Klopp’s reputation and insight, the only reason worth suggesting is that the Reds are finally empty after years of endless competition. Manchester City may also want to be part of this conversation at this point (see item #1). But Liverpool have now allowed eight…
