The 5 records Erling Haaland could still break this season, including one that's stood since 1928
| Last updated
Erling Haaland could break numerous records in the coming weeks as Manchester City bid to secure a famous treble.
The Norwegian striker broke the Premier League's single-season scoring record on Wednesday night when he bagged his 35th goal of the season for City in their convincing 3-0 win over West Ham.
As a result, Haaland surpassed Alan Shearer and Andy Cole, who scored 34 each in the 1993/94 and 1994/95 seasons respectively, in the PL scoring charts – and there's still five games remaining.
It has been a dream debut campaign in England's top flight for the 22-year-old former Borussia Dortmund forward, who has already become the youngest player to score 30 goals in the Champions League after his exploits in Europe of late.
So what other records could he break in the coming weeks? We've picked out five of the most realistic ones ahead of games against Leeds, Real Madrid [x2], Everton, Chelsea, Brighton, Brentford and Manchester United.
Oh, and if they manage to beat Los Blancos in this month's Champions League semi-final, Haaland will face either AC Milan or Inter Milan in the final on June 10. We'll start with a record in Europe, shall we...
Most goals in a Champions League season:
Haaland netted five goals in the Champions League group stages and another seven in the knockout rounds, which included five goals against RB Leipzig to book City's place in the quarter-final.
The current record for most UCL goals in a single season belongs to Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored 17 goals in the 2013/14 season for Real Madrid.
Haaland is currently on 12 goals for the campaign. Can he do it?
Most goals in a Champions League season for a Premier League club
Haaland only needs one more goal to break this record. Ruud van Nistelrooy is the current holder after he scored 12 goals for Manchester United during their journey to the quarter-final stage in 2002/03.
City will come up against defending European champions Real Madrid at the Bernabeu on May 9 in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final.
And then on May 17, Pep Guardiola's side will be hoping to secure a place in the UCL final against either AC Milan or Inter Milan at Istanbul's Ataturk Olympic Stadium.

Most goals in an English top-flight season in all competitions
Haaland has so far scored 51 goals in all competitions but he will have to score another 12 in City's remaining fixtures if he wants to smash the record set by Dixie Dean.
Dean scored 63 goals in 41 games for Everton during the 1927/28 season – a feat that nobody has come close to since.
But the brilliant Haaland could go on and smash it with eight [nine including the Champions League final if they beat Madrid] fixtures remaining in all competitions. You wouldn't put it past him, would you...
Most teams scored against in a Premier League season
Haaland will have to score against Chelsea on May 21 and Brentford on May 28 if he wants to break this one.
The current record currently stands at 17, achieved by Andy Cole, Alan Shearer, Ian Wright, Robin van Persie and Mohamed Salah, who scored against all but two clubs in their respective campaigns.
Haaland, meanwhile, has only failed to score against Liverpool this season. And he missed one of those games through injury.
Most hat-tricks in a season
So far, Erling Haaland has scored four, I repeat FOUR, hat-tricks in the Premier League this season – bagging three against Manchester United, Wolves, Crystal Palace and Nottingham Forest.
But the great Alan Shearer has more. In his debut season for Newcastle in England's top flight, Shearer scored hat-tricks against West Ham, Tottenham, Coventry, Nottingham Forest and Bolton.
The Norwegian will need two hat-tricks in the next five games to break the record. Ordinarily you'd say that was on the verge of impossible. The thing is; Haaland is far from ordinary.
Do you think Haaland will break any of the above records? Let us know in the comments.
