‘Monster’ Elling Hollan (22, Manchester City), who has consistently maintained a tremendous scoring pace, is now running toward a team record of a very distant past.
Manchester City’s official website said on the 4th (Korean time), “Halan approached the record for the most goals for the team 94 years ago (1929).”
On this day, Halan scored a goal in the 20th minute of the second half in a match against West Ham in the 28th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, England. After checking the position of the opposing goalkeeper, he exquisitely shook the net through a sensational breakthrough.토토사이트
With this, Hollan scored his 35th EPL goal this season. On the 27th of last month, he scored the 33rd goal against Arsenal, a new record for the most goals in 38 games (Mohamed Salah in the 2017-18 season, 32 goals). Even the record was broken.
Manchester City still have five more games left until the end of the season, so Haalan’s record-breaking streak is expected to be longer. Some are predicting that they can even look at 40 goals in a single season in the EPL for the first time ever. He also holds the record for the most goals scored by the team.
Manchester City’s website explains: “Still hungry for goals, Haalan is three goals away from breaking the all-time league record set by Tommy Johnson 94 years ago.” According to the media, Johnson scored 38 goals in the First Division (first division at the time) in the 1928-29 season. Coincidentally, Johnson is said to be the original owner of the number 9 jersey currently worn by Hollan.
Now, with just four more goals, Haalan could surpass Johnson to break a 94-year-old record. “Johnson’s son, Alan Johnson, once said, ‘His father would have been very happy if his record had been broken,'” the media reported. “Hollan is working to grant Johnson’s wishes,” he said.
