Erling Haaland has scored a goal every THIRTEEN touches for Man City… less than HALF of nearest Prem rival Antony | The Sun

ERLING HAALAND averages a goal in the Premier League with every THIRTEEN touches.

It takes him half as many touches to find the back of the net as Manchester United star Antony, who has the second best record in the league.

It's safe to say the £51million summer signing from Borussia Dortmund has hit the ground running.

In six Premier League appearances, he has netted an incredible 10 goals.

And on average the 22-year-old finds the back of the net every 13.2 touches, according to Opta.

The Norwegian ace has proven he doesn't need to be involved in the game to get goals, touching the ball just eight times in the 4-0 win over Bournemouth last month.

He is so far clear of the rest of the league, Antony's 28 touches per goal is the next best record.

But that's still more than DOUBLE as much as it takes Haaland.

And the £85.5million man has only played one league game for the Red Devils so far, whereas Haaland has started every Prem game.

Callum Wilson bags a goal an impressive 28.5 touches, just behind the United trickster.

His Toon team-mate Alexander Isak is third, averaging a goal with every 39 touches of the ball.

Haaland's City pal Julian Alvarez has also proved he has an eye for goal.

In a start that would be considered more impressive if it weren't for Haaland's freak figures, Alvarez averages a goal every 40.5 touches.

The 22-year-old has scored two goals in four Prem appearances so far.

Leeds forward Rodrigo rounds off the top five.

The Spaniard has scored four goals in five Prem games, finding the back of the net with every 40 touches of the ball, on average.
