Is this the world’s best ever goalscorer?

Is this the world’s best ever goalscorer?

By Jill Dando News

Man City striker Erling Haaland is now in England and scoring goals like a machine.

Indeed, almost like creating your idea player on the PlayStation Fifa game, he has height, speed, strength and a goalscoring ability off the scale.

The complete player?

The good news is that he is young and we are witnessing footballing history.

Haaland would finish the season on 70 Premier League goals if his strike-rate was maintained - a world record.

We sent out our Jill Dando News team to watch him score a hat trick against new boys Nottingham Forest.


It looked so easy as he scored the perfect 3 goals - left foot, right foot, header - without breaking sweat.

Haaland, who scored another two goals in Manchester City's Champions League win over Sevilla on Tuesday, has now netted 10 from just six Premier League games, and has also been substituted early in all but one of those to miss 55 minutes - netting back-to-back hat-tricks during wins over Crystal Palace and Forest at the Etihad.


Aleksandar Mitrovic, Harry Kane, Ivan Toney follow behind in his wake.

Those numbers produce a staggering ratio of 1.86 goals per game - more potent than any other player in Europe's top five leagues this season to have played in excess of 108 minutes.

We are surely witnessing footballing history being made.
