Erling Haaland rewrites history books again in Man City win over West Ham

Erling Haaland has once again managed to rewrite history as his goal on Wednesday night helped Man City win comfortably against Premier League relegation-threatened West Ham and reclaim the top spot in the standings.Erling Haaland rewrites history books again in Man City win over West Ham

The opposition created challenges in the opening 45 minutes, but they were still under a lot of strain.

Fabianski stopped shots from Mahrez and Grealish, and Rodri struck on the opposite side of the post.

Although West Ham played strong defense, they gave up a soft goal soon after the interval when Ake powered his header into the ground to beat Fabianski after Mahrez’s free-kick from the outside of the box located him.

Then, with his 35th goal of the calendar year, Haaland doubled City’s lead and set a Premier League record for the most goals scored by a player in a single English top-flight season.

Haaland was able to slip around the West Ham defenders and finesse his shot over the goalkeeper after Grealish, who had just broken free on the attack, had threaded a throughball into the foot of the striker.

When Foden shot from the edge of the box toward the goal, the ball deflected off Emerson and into the goal, completing the crushing defeat.

After a goalless opening 45 minutes, City will be thrilled to run away with a straightforward victory.

Since he joined in 2016, the Pep Guardiola team has amassed over 1,000 goals across all competitions, more than any other team in the Premier League and more than any other team in Europe.

The Guardiola men will surely be feeling that their next match against Leeds United, a team that has let up an amazing 67 goals in 34 games, would be simple.

But then, they will have to face a fresh obstacle, as Sam Allardyce will be in charge of his first club match.

West Ham, who is struggling at the other end of the standings and is only four points clear of the drop zone, will play Manchester United in their next match.
