Manchester City stars support Haaland

Unsurprisingly, star striker Erling Haaland stole all the headlines when it came to goals scored, with the young Norwegian netting a phenomenal 52 goals in all competitions this season.

He is well ahead of his City teammates, but they at least did their best to help with the goalscoring burden.

Haaland’s deputy Julian Alvarez sits second in the scoring list with 17 goals, closely followed by Riyad Mahrez and Phil Foden with 15, with all three players hitting superb tallies despite not always being first choice under Guardiola.

Gundogan hit 11 goals in all competitions, with fellow midfielder Kevin De Bruyne also hitting double figures with 10. Even the club’s defenders chipped in, with John Stones and Nathan Ake both netting three times in all competitions.
