(HD Video) Real Sociedad vs Manchester United 0-1 • Garnacho Goal • Europa League
That haul includes three hat-tricks at the Etihad as he continues to rewrite England’s record books, but the Norwegian is not the most productive forward in front of goal. That accolade belongs to Bournemouth striker Kieffer Moore.
Haaland has had 47 efforts on goal, converting 36 per cent of his shots, a return only bettered by Moore, who has scored three times for a Cherries side aiming to avoid relegation. His conversion rate of 38 per cent puts him on top of the list for most lethal forwards in the top flight, ahead of some stellar names.
Jadon Sancho, who has been a regular under Erik ten Hag at Manchester United, is the third most clinical forward in the Premier League. The former Borussia Dortmund man has scored twice from seven efforts at goal, including the winner against Leicester City. City’s Julian Alvarez, who has had to play second fiddle to Haaland, has the same return.
The figures do make for damning reading if you’re Sancho’s teammate Cristiano Ronaldo however. The United man has endured a forgettable few months with minutes few and far between for the Portuguese star, who wanted to leave Manchester in the summer.
He’s only enjoyed three starts thus far with his remaining minutes coming from the bench. Ronaldo, a man renowned for his goalscoring, is clearly determined to make his mark, which is perhaps why he’s fired in 22 efforts on goal.
