Erling Haaland continued to break records on his debut campaign at Manchester City with a 3-0 win over Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Tuesday.

The landmark comes days after he became only the third player to reach 30 Premier League goals in a debut season with City’s 4-1 win at Southampton on Saturday.

The Norway international surpassed the 44-goal Premier League tally set by former Manchester United striker Ruud van Nistelrooy and Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah.

Haaland will now have his sights set on Clive Allen’s English top-flight goal record of 49 in all competitions.

The City striker is also just two goals short of Salah’s record of 32 goals in a 38-game league season. He could also surpass Andrew Cole and Alan Shearer’s record of 34 goals in a single league season.

Pep Guardiola’s side face relegation-threatened Leicester City on Saturday before traveling to Germany for their Champions League quarter-final second-leg tie at Bayern.
