News, Premier League

Erling Haaland’s impressive performances in the Premier League have earned him a deserving accolade.

According to EFE news agency, Erling Haaland, Manchester City’s Norwegian striker, has been named the Football Writers’ Association (FWA) Premier League player of the season. Haaland won the award by a wide margin after scoring 51 goals in his first season in English football. He received 82% of the votes, with Bukayo Saka and Martin Odegaard, both from Arsenal, finishing second and third, respectively.

Meanwhile, Sam Kerr, Chelsea’s Australian striker, retained the women’s category award, becoming the first to do so. She received twice as many votes as Aston Villa’s Rachel Daly, with Lauren James of Chelsea coming in third place.

Haaland and Kerr will be presented with their awards at a ceremony on Thursday, May 25th, after the conclusion of the English football season. Haaland has scored 35 goals in 34 Premier League games, breaking the record for goals in a single season. He still has four more games to add to that tally. He also holds the all-time record for a Premier League player, with 51 goals in total, including 11 in the Champions League and six in the FA Cup.
