Who has scored the most Premier League goals in 2022? – GiveMeSport

Say Erling Haaland hit the ground running Manchester City would be something of an understatement.

The Norwegian striker has taken the Premier League by storm. He scored 11 goals in his first seven matches, registering hat-tricks against Crystal Palace and Nottingham Forest.

No player from Europe’s top five leagues has found the back of the net more times than Haaland so far in 2022/23. Yes, this includes the form Neymar and Robert Lewandowski.

Haaland’s numbers are simply amazing. In fact, they are so good that at the time of writing only four men have scored more Premier League goals in 2022 than him.

The 11-year-old former Borussia Dortmund man’s journey is more than Cristiano Ronaldo (10 out of 22), Mohammad Salah (10 out of 21) and Gabriel Jesus (10 out of 19).

Madness, right?

So, let’s take a look at the Premier League’s top scorers this calendar year…

Bukayo Saka (Arsenal) – 7 goals

Alexis MacAllister (Brighton) – 7 goals

Haaland shouldn’t be that high on the list, but we’re talking about a man who could very well be a footballing cyborg.

Kane’s record is also very impressive and it looks like Spurs’ talisman form has slipped slightly under the radar lately.

Sure, he’s yet to hit double figures in the Premier League this season (he’s currently on six goals), but the man who will soon be England’s top scorer has been a hallmark of the consistency throughout 2022.

There is reason to argue that Haaland and Kane are the two best strikers on the planet right now, although that could do a disservice to Lewandowski and Karim Benzema.
