Haaland saw off competition from teammate Kevin De Bryne, Arsenal’s duo of Bukayo Saka and Martin Odegaard, Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford, Harry Kane of Tottenham, and Newcastle defender Kieran Trippier to scoop the prize after a vote cast by the public, Premier League club skippers, and a panel of football experts.

Recently, the Norwegian won the 2023 Football Writers’ Association Footballer of the Year award. He had more than 80 percent of the votes to claim the accolade.

Haaland is also in contention for the PFA Player of the Season award.

“Everyone at Manchester City is delighted for Erling and would like to send our congratulations on another well-deserved accolade,” his club said on their website.

When Pep Guardiola’s men visit Brentford on Sunday, Haaland will have a chance to add to his season’s goal tally.

Saturday’s award means a Manchester City player has gotten the prize for four years in a row.

De Bryne took it in 2019/20 and 2021/22 while Ruben Dias clinched the prize in 2020/21. Before then, Vincent Kompany had won it in 2011/12.

City have already won the league this season, the third time in a row and the fifth in the last six campaigns.
