Haaland Shortlisted for Young Player Of The SeasonAfter a record-breaking and mesmerising inaugural season with Manchester City, Erling Haaland has been shortlisted for the Premier League Hublot Young Player of the Season.

Haaland has been nominated alongside Sven Botman (Newcastle United), Moises Caicedo (Brighton & Hove Albion), Alexander Isak (Newcastle United) , Alexis Mac Allister (Brighton & Hove Albion), Gabriel Martinelli (Arsenal), Martin Odegaard (Arsenal) and Bukayo Saka (Arsenal).

The City forward has featured in 33 top-flight games, winning 25, drawing four and losing four. Within those, Haaland has scored a record-breaking 36 goals and provided seven assists, with three league games remaining.

In City’s 4-1 win over Arsenal in April, the 22-year-old scored his 33rd goal of the season, breaking the record for the most goals scored in a 38-game Premier League season.

Haaland then broke the record for most goals in a Premier League season a week later. His 35th goal, which he scored in City’s 3-0 win over West Ham, earned him a guard of honour at the Etihad.

The 70th minute goal allowed him to surpass Andrew Cole and Alan Shearer who held the record with 34 goals in the 1993/94 and 1994/95 seasons respectively when the season comprised of 42 matches.

City are also set to compete in two major finals – the FA Cup on Saturday 3 June and the Champions League on Saturday 10 June against Manchester United and Inter Milan respectively.
