Man City ace ​Haaland would be third in the Premier League if he was a team

If Manchester City striker Erling Haaland was a team all by himself, he’d still be above Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool.

The summer signing from Borussia Dortmund has scored 11 goals in the Premier League in his first 7 appearances, breaking all kinds of records for a player beginning life in England.

He added another goal to his tally on the weekend, scoring with his weaker foot from outside the area against Wolves in a 0-3 away win for Man City.

His start to the season has been so ridiculous that if Haaland was the only player that had scored for Man City this season, they would still be third in the Premier League. Yep, that’s right. Haaland would be above Manchester United all by himself.

His total of 11 goals so far this season would also make him the 6th highest scoring team, let alone player. Without Haaland’s goals so far this season, City would be 7th in the Premier League.

Haaland has quite simply been ridiculous so far this season, and has even had Manchester United fans beg him to sign for them on the streets of Manchester.

His stats (via BritishGambler.co.uk) put the rest of the Premier League to shame, as the City striker averages a goal every 52 minutes in the Premier League so far this season. His 11 goals have come from just 27 shots, with a conversion rate of over 40%. He has scored more league goals than Leo Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Robert Lewandowski combined this season.

His next Premier League match will be his first Manchester derby.
