Erling Haaland has scored more Premier League goals this season than Chelsea’s entire team.


The frighteningly-prolific Norwegian picked up from where he left off before the World Cup break by bagging a brace as Manchester City steamrolled past Leeds at Elland Road last night, bringing his tally to 20 league goals after just 14 appearances.

Graham Potter’s Chelsea, who have (or had, at least) ambitions of winning the title, lest we forget, have scored just 19, with their top scorer, Kai Havertz, registering a measly-by-comparison four league goals so far.Haaland’s ravenous form is antithetical of Chelsea’s struggles in front of goal – which have been plaguing the side more-or-less since Diego Costa departed in 2017.Since then, the Blues have brought in a series of high-profile strikers, including Alvaro Morata, Gonzalo Higuain, Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku, only to see them all fall flat on their face.Mason Mount finished last season as the club’s leading Premier League scorer with 11 goals, and the season before that Jorginho’s seven-goal haul was enough to take top spot.
