The Norwegian superstar took the Premier League by storm in his first season in English football.
Erling Haaland has picked his strike against Southampton as his favourite goal of the season.
Haaland’s glorious debut season at Etihad is nearing its end, with the 22-year-old establishing his place among the league’s best strikers.
A strike against West Ham saw Haaland break the 38-game season scoring record by registering his 35th goal of the season. But the Norwegian striker picked one of his more spectacular goals when asked to choose his favourite.
“The Southampton goal is so nice, hanging there in the air for a bit,” he told the Premier League. “I have to go with that.”
He continued: “It was a really nice goal. The perfect ball from [Jack Grealish]. A really special goal. There’s not much to say on it, because the goal really speaks for itself.”
Haaland helped City edge out Arsenal in a close title race in the Premier League. The Citizens are also in the finals of the Champions League and the FA Cup.
The former Borussia Dortmund admits he didn’t expect to have such an immediate impact at the Etihad Stadium.
“I feel good, it’s a special moment,” he said. “I expected to do good things but, to do this, I didn’t expect.
“It’s really just about taking it game-by-game, to be honest, and to focus on what we can focus about. I don’t like to focus on the future or the past. I like to live in moment and I like to take it game-by-game – exactly what [Pep Guardiola] said we were going to do and that’s what we did.”
