‘Average 1.32 goals’ Elling Hollan, season 40 points ‘sight’… Is 50 goals even possible?
25 points in 19 games. 4th hat trick. In the English Premier League (EPL), which is considered the world’s best stage, 40 goals that no one has ever achieved are in sight. If he picks up the pace, he could score over 50 goals. This is the path that Elling Hollan (Norway), who is bombing the league at the age of 23, is walking.
Manchester City (Man City) won a 3-0 win with Holland, who recorded a hat-trick, in the EPL match against Wolverhampton in the 2022-2023 season held at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, England on the 22nd. All three of Man City’s goals came from Halan. In the 40th minute of the first half, Haalan headed the Kevin De Bruyne cross and shook the net. It was Halan’s 23rd goal of the season. Hollan, who successfully scored a penalty kick (goal 24) in the 5th minute of the second half, took advantage of the opposing keeper’s mistake in the 10th minute of the second half to complete a hat-trick with the third goal. Hollan, who scored his 25th goal of the season by scoring three goals early, was replaced in the 16th minute of the second half and took a break.
Hollan is challenging 50 goals beyond 40 goals in a season, which no one has ever achieved, as well as the highest score ever in the EPL. The record for the most goals scored in a single season is 34, set by Newcastle Andy Cole in the 1993-1994 season and Blackburn Alan Shearer in the 1994-1995 season. At that time, there were 42 matches per team, 4 more than now. Since the introduction of the 38-game system as it is now, the player who scored the most goals was 32 goals scored by Salach in the 2017-2018 season.
The highest score and 40 goals are in sight. Hollan has averaged 1.32 goals per game. A simple calculation shows that if Hollan plays in all 18 matches left for Man City while maintaining the current pace, he will score 23.68 more goals. Adding this to the 25 goals Hollan has scored so far, the total is expected to reach 48.68 goals.
Haalan has appeared in 19 of Manchester City’s 20 matches. The only match he missed was a leg injury against Leicester City on 29 October. It is an advantage for Hollan that the main players of each team have a physical burden while digesting the World Cup schedule. Norway did not qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. 토토사이트
By writing a hat-trick on this day, Hollan again approached a new history. The 3 goals in 1 game was Hollan’s 4th hat-trick of the season. In the 1995-1996 season, Alan Shearer recorded more hat tricks than Haalan in one season only five times. If Hollan scores three goals in one more game in the remaining 18 games, he will stand shoulder to shoulder with ‘British football legend’ Shearer.
Hollan, who scored his 25th goal on the day, easily surpassed the 23 goals recorded by Son Heung-min and Mohamed Salah, the top scorers last season. The two players wrote this record in 35 games.
Meanwhile, Hwang Hee-chan (27), who is active in Wolverhampton, started 6 times in a row in the league on this day, but was replaced at the start of the second half without even hitting a single shot. Hwang Hee-chan is recording one assist in the EPL this season.
