Manchester City edge Fulham to go top as Haaland equals another record



Manchester City reclaimed the Premier League’s top spot for the first time since February as Erling Haaland achieved yet another milestone in a 2-1 victory over Fulham on Sunday,

In his record-tying 34th Premier League goal during an extraordinary debut season in England, Haaland buried a penalty in the third minute.

He now shares the Premier League single-season scoring record with Andy Cole and Alan Shearer.

Carlos Vinicius’ bullet past Ederson in the 15th minute gave City a setback, but they bounced back to create a string of opportunities.

Before Argentine forward Julian Alvarez produced a moment of magic to beat Bernd Leno with a right-footed drive from the edge of the box, Jack Grealish was denied by the crossbar.

City managed to hold on and earn their eighth straight league victory despite numerous opportunities and some nervous moments after the break.

They climbed one point ahead of Arsenal with 76 points and still have a game remaining.
