  • Erling Haaland scored five goals in Manchester City's demolition of Luton Town
  • The Norwegian striker has now scored 79 goals for the reigning treble winners
  • He is clear of other Premier League stars in goals since he moved to England

Erling Haaland scored five goals to help Manchester City beat Luton Town 6-2 and progress to the next round of the FA Cup to have a chance to defend their title.

The Norwegian has not been at his usual best this season, but yesterday was a statement of what he could do on his day. He has more goals than other players in the league since he joined.

Sports Brief looks at five players with the most goals since he moved to Manchester from Borussia Dortmund.

Players with the most goals since Haaland joined City

1. Erling Haaland

With his five goals last night, he hit 79 goals for the Citizens, making him the player with most goals since he moved to England in the summer of 2022. Per PL on X, he is the only player in the league to have five goals in two different games, having scored the same number against RB Leipzig in the UEFA Champions League quarter-final last year.

2. Mohamed Salah

The Liverpool star has netted 49 times for the Reds since the start of the 2022/23 season. He is far behind Haaland but the best goalscorer in the league, away from the former RB Salzburg striker’s anomaly.

3. Harry Kane

Can we talk about goals in the English top flight and not talk about Harry Kane? He left Tottenham Hotspur for Bayern Munich in August but is still close to the top of the scorer chart. He netted 36 goals in all competitions last season.

4. Ollie Watkins

The English forward has found a new life since the arrival of Unai Emery, who took over at Aston Villa on October 22 and has scored 35 times in that period. Per Transfermarkt, he is the only player with double digits in goals and assists so far.

4. Marcus Rashford

The Manchester United forward was in blistering form after the Qatar 2022 World Cup and was pivotal to helping the club break their six-year trophy drought. He scored 35 since the start of the 2022/23 season and would have been more if he had not lost form this season.

Jesus holds Premier League record

Sports Brief reported on Arsenal star Gabriel Jesus holding a record for most games scored in without losing in the Premier League, with 60 between the two clubs he has played for.

Haaland, who moved to the league last season, features on the list, having yet to taste defeat in the 34 games he has scored in, winning 29 and drawing five.
