NO ONE COMPARES TO CITY’S HAALAND THIS SEASON SAYS ARTETA – Arsenal prepare for top-of-the-table clash against City tonight
Erling Haaland’s incredible goal record at Manchester City sets him apart from all other players this season, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta said ahead of tonight’s top-of-the-table Premier League clash at the Etihad Stadium.
Haaland leads the league’s goal-scoring charts with 32 goals, eight more than Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane in second and 12 more than Brentford’s Ivan Toney, who is third on the list.
The Norway international is only one short of breaking Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah’s record for the most goals scored in a 38-game Premier League season. His total haul this campaign stands at 48 goals in 42 games across all competitions for City, including 12 in the Champions League.
Arsenal are unbeaten in their last five games in all competitions but have not won at City in the league since 2015. City are unbeaten in 16 games in all competitions since losing to Tottenham Hotspur in early February, with 13 wins and three draws during that run.
