Haaland wins second Premier League Golden Boot

Erling Haaland won the Premier League Golden Boot for the second successive season after notching up 27 goals in Manchester City's title winning campaign. Man City sealed their fourth consecutive league title on Sunday (May 19) after beating West Ham United 3-1 at the Etihad Stadium and finishing two points ahead of Arsenal, who won their final game of the season against Everton. While Haaland has been unable to replicate his goalscoring feats from the previous season that saw him net 36 times in the league, his 27 goals this season saw him comfortably beat Cole Palmer (22) in the Golden Boot race.

Manchester City and Norway forward Erling Haaland has won the 2023-24 Premier League Golden Boot awarded to the leading scorer in England's top flight. Haaland finished the campaign on 27 goals, five more than nearest rival Cole Palmer, the Chelsea and England forward.

Having won the Golden Boot in his first season at Man City, Haaland is the first player to win the award outright in back-to-back seasons since Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane. England captain Kane scored 25 goals in 38 games in 2015-16 before following it up with 29 in 30 in 2016-17.

Haaland has scored almost one-third of Manchester City's Premier League goals since joining from Borussia Dortmund in June 2022. After winning the league with 94 goals last season, City did so this season with 96.

Haaland, 23, has scored a remarkable 63 times in 66 league appearances.

It has not been totally straightforward for him over the past nine months, though. Despite his goals propelling City to a historic fourth successive league title, Haaland has had his critics this season, while he missed 10 league and cup games in December and January after fracturing his foot.
