2012. Erling Haaland had a great start to the English Championship season. Has the top scorer ever scored more goals than any team?Matej Andrejek
This is not such a rare case, since such a development happened in eight seasons.
|2003||Ruud van Nistelrooy||25||Sunderland||21|
|2008||Cristiano Ronaldo||31||Derby County||20|
|2014||Luis Suarez||31||Norwich City||28|
|2018||Mo Salah||32||Swansea, Huddersfield||28|
|2021||Harry Kane||23||Sheffield Utd||20|
|2022||Salah, Son||24||Norwich City||23|
The 2007/2008 season was the only one when the top scorer was better than more than one team (in attack). Mo Salah has scored 32 goals, more than the combined attacks of Swansea, Huddersfield (both 28) and WBA (31).
This year, Haaland could easily beat this record, as he has scored more goals than 13 teams in the same competition!
2013. What was the biggest goal difference (between top scorer and worst attacking team)?Matej Andrejek
As the table above shows, that’s 11 hits. Cristiano Ronaldo scored 31 league goals in the 2007/2008 season, while all Derby County members combined for just 20.
