HAAL OF FAME
ERLING HAALAND marked his record Premier League goal tally by wearing customised boots – but was forced to change them after scoring AGAIN.
The 22-year-old donned boots displaying the number 35 in the 3-0 win over Everton on Sunday to mark his 35 Prem goals this season.

Haaland broke the all-time Premier League scoring record in the 3-0 win over West Ham at the start of the month.
And, unsurprisingly, Haaland netted yet again in Sunday’s win at Goodison Park.
The Norwegian striker headed past a diving Jordan Pickford for his 52nd strike in all competitions this campaign.
So that meant his boots needed an update.
After the match, Haaland posted pictures to Instagram having re-customised his shoes.

He crossed out the number five on 35 and replacing it with a six in what looked like marker pen.
It’s unknown whether today was the first time Haaland had worn the specially customised boots.
He has featured against Leeds and Real Madrid since breaking the record.
Although at his current rate he’ll need a few more customised pairs before the season ends to keep up with his goal tally.
City have three Premier League games left to play and are within touching distance of winning a fifth title in the last six season.
Haaland and Co are also in the FA Cup final, and are tied 1-1 with Real Madrid going into Wednesday’s Champions League semi-final second leg.
