For those who are tempted to write off Erling Haaland’s historically hot start to life as a Premier League striker, we understand that there is something rather dull about not wondering about the identity of the 2022 Golden Boot winner, but simply about the number. his final score.

Haaland leads the Premier League with 14 goals in eight games, seven more than the next closest challenger: Tottenham’s Harry Kane.

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.

Take a look at these numbers. Haaland doesn’t just score goals; He almost seamlessly transitioned to the Pep Guardiola system, creating chances for others in addition to his powerful self-position.

Haaland is unlikely to score even 50 goals given Manchester City’s busy schedule, but the Premier League record is in jeopardy.

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.

Wesley Fofana, who was injured later in the first half, opened the scoring by opening his Chelsea scoring in the 24th minute. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored for the second game in a row to make it 2-0, with Rhys James adding a third just after the hour mark.

Chelsea dribbled smoothly and comfortably (to be expected from a team that Potter coached) but gave Milan almost nothing (only three shots in 90 minutes) defensively, as they often tried to do under previous boss Thomas Tuchel.

What we learned from the match Chelsea against AC Milan

Chelsea squad more in line with Potter’s style than Tuchel’s

It’s easy to say this based on results alone (2W-1D-0L), but it’s quick enough to look over the lineup list to see that the vast majority of the players currently at the club are ill-suited to counters. attacking football both with and without the ball.

Aubameyang is known to have the straight-line speed needed to penetrate defenses (remember, he only played one game under Tuchel), but all the other forwards (Mason Mount, Kai Havertz, Raheem Sterling and Christian Pulisic) are technical players. who excel in combination play and steady possession of the ball. Much the same is true in midfield, where N’Golo Kante can no longer cover every blade of grass, and Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic have been erroneously seen as mostly stationary back line defenders with nothing but ball-handling defenders. (both central and wide).

Everyone seems to be much happier as they express something more like their true selves as players and the results will only add to the good vibes currently radiating out of west London.

Key storylines

Chelsea picked up a late and controversial victory over Palace at the weekend, they are creating more chances in attack and slowly getting used to Graham Potter tactics. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is out of work as he also scored at Palace and Chelsea continue to look solid defensively. Potter also noticed that his injury problems have subsided as the likes of N’Golo Kante, Édouard Mendy and Mark Cucurella are expected to return soon. As for Milan, they have had a great start to the Serie A season and are in fifth place, but they are only three points behind and their team looks very deep.

Uniform players to keep an eye on

Chelsea’s Conor Gallagher scored beautifully to win the game against Palace and he will fly high, while Aubameyang looked witty and scored his goal at the weekend, proving he can lead this revamped Chelsea squad. Reece James was in sensational form at right-back. For Milan, Olivier Giroud is their top scorer this season with five goals in all competitions, with Rafael Leão right behind him with four. Sandro Tonali will force Milan to operate in central midfield and try to dictate the pace of this game.

Underground “Milan”

Giroud leads the attack and Chelsea academy-born Fikayo Tomori plays defensively, and there are a couple of former Chelsea players who will be desperate to prove their performance against their old club. In addition to this storyline, Milan head coach Stefano Pioli has created a dynamic, hard-working team that is very hard to break and has the personality to score a lot of goals from free-kicks and set-pieces. This will be of concern to Chelsea as defensively they have had problems in these two areas.

Chelsea team news, injuries, squad options

This game might start too early for Kante, Mandy, and Cucurella, but Potter will be glad they’re almost done, while Gallagher, Brocha, and Pulisic are doing their best for a few minutes. Will Thiago Silva and Wesley Fofana start at center back again? Or will Coulibaly come to give Silva a break?
