Erling Haaland smashes FPL record which no other player will match for a very, very long time

Erling Haaland smashes FPL record which no other player will match for a very, very long time

Haaland can't stop breaking records.

Erling Haaland has set a new Fantasy Premier League record ahead of a crucial double-header for Manchester City.

Haaland returned to action last month after missing 10 games with a foot injury, but in truth, Man City didn't really miss him.

Pep Guardiola's side won nine and drew one of those 10 matches, although the striker's absence had a greater affect on Fantasy Premier League players.

Millions of players are confident that Haaland will get on the scoresheet this gameweek, so many in fact that a record has been broken.

City have two games in Gameweek 25. On Saturday Pep Guardiola's side will take on Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium, before facing Brentford on Tuesday.

In anticipation of a few Haaland goals, 1.3 million managers have triple-captained Haaland, making him the most Triple-Captained player ever.

That figure has smashed the previous record, set in 2021/22 when just over 1 million players Triple-Captained Liverpool star Mohamed Salah.

Salah returned 28 points - 84 points with a Triple-Captain chip - when Liverpool faced both Norwich City and Leeds United in the Gameweek 26 in 2021/22.

For the first time ever, more than two million FPL managers have played a chip in a Gameweek, including Triple-Captain, Wildcard, Free Hit and Bench Boost.

The fact that City and Liverpool - the top two in the Premier League - both have two favourable match-ups in Gameweek 25 has likely resulted in the surge in players deciding to play their Triple-Captain chip.

Liverpool beat Brentford in Saturday's early kick-off, and will host Luton Town at Anfield on Wednesday.

Haaland has broken all sorts of record since he joined City in 2022, but he likely never expected to make history on FPL.
