What makes Haaland’s performance even more impressive: With the English Senate still fielding 22 teams until the 1995/96 season, Cole and Shearer both played far more games than the 22-year-old City wonder boy. Cole’s 34 goals were spread over 40 league duels, with Shearer even playing in all 42 matches in his record season.

For comparison: Haaland only needed 31 Premier League matches. With five matches remaining, he has excellent chances to increase his goal tally.

Needless to say, the Skyblues number nine was then celebrated for its impressive numbers.
