Erling Haaland reveals secret behind his monstrous goal-scoring form

Ever since Erling Haaland made this big money move to Manchester City from Borussia Dortmund, he has taken the Premier League by a storm. The striker has been scoring goals for fun, destroying defences at will and breaking records with every passing match. With over two months remaining in the season, Haaland already has 39 goals across all competitions. 

Haaland recently was involved in the Champions League second leg clash against RB Leipzig at the Etihad Stadium, where he smashed a hat-trick in the first half to deny the German team any hopes of a miracle. He later added two more goals early on in the first half to score five goals in a match for the first time in his career.

Manchester City humiliated Leipzig 7-0 at home and won the tie 8-1 on aggregate. With this performance, the Norwegian striker overtook a century old club record and nobody in Manchester City’s history has scored more goals than him in a single season. He also became the youngest ever player to score 30 goals in UEFA Champions League and became famous in the betting world too.

Talking about his goal-scoring exploits, he mentioned that being quick in his mind is the most helpful facet towards his scoring opportunities. 

“It’s a big night. Firstly, I’m proud to play in this competition, I love it. Five goals!” he told BT Sport. “My super strength is scoring goals. Should I be honest? A lot of goals today, I didn’t think. I was just trying to get it into the back of the net. A lot of it is being quick in the mind and trying to put it where the goalkeeper is not. To win 7-0 is amazing. I’m blurry in my head. I remember shooting but not thinking. I was so tired after my celebrations.”

The 22-year-old is already threatening to break multiple long-existing Premier League records while he stays at this club. He currently has 28 goals in the league itself and is four short of Mohamed Salah’s record of most goals in a 38-match season. He is firmly in contention to break Andy Cole and Alan Shearer’s record of 34 goals in a season, which would establish his supremacy furthermore.
