Erling Haaland sets another record!

Despite a resilient performance by Brentford, Haaland’s composed finish in the 71st minute secured the win for City, reigniting their pursuit of a third-straight Premier League title. With this goal, Haaland joins Kane (32/32) as the only players to have scored against every team they faced in the Premier League. However, the Norwegian achieved this feat in just his second season in England, which speaks volumes about his goal scoring prowess and the impact he has had on the English top-flight since he moved from Borussia Dortmund.

Kristoffer Ajer had an unfortunate slip which provided Haaland with a clear path to goal. The 23-year-old kept his composure to score past Mark Flekken, who had come off of his line, to register his 22nd goal of the season.

City had taken 17 shots on goal in the first half, but only five of them were on target. However, they were more clinical in the second half and kept six more inside the frame of the goal out of eight attempts.

The victory sees City leapfrog Arsenal into second place and close the gap to one point behind league leaders Liverpool. Looking ahead, City will aim to continue their winning streak as they face Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium, while Brentford will seek to bounce back against West Ham United at the London Stadium.
