Erling Haaland says he feels honoured to be the first person in Premier League history to win both the EA SPORTS Player and Hublot Young Player of the Season awards in the same campaign.

Haaland picks up both accolades in an historic season in which he scored the most goals by any player in a single Premier League campaign, breaking multiple records along the way.

“I am honoured to have become the first player to win both awards in the same season – thank you to everyone who voted for me," Haaland told Man City's official website.  

“It has been an incredible first season in the Premier League and lifting the Trophy last weekend in front of our fans at the Etihad was a very special moment for me."

But Haaland's season is not done yet. 

He faces Brentford on Sunday looking to end the Premier League campaign on a high. If he gets a goal or an assist, he will break the record for most goal involvements in a single season, which he currently jointly holds with Thierry Henry, on 44. 

And after that, he has two finals to look forward to, as Man City aim to be the first English team to win a Premier League, FA Cup and UEFA Champions League treble since Manchester United did so in 1998/99.

“These awards would not have been possible without my amazing team-mates, the manager and all of the staff at the club who help me perform on the pitch," Haaland added. "Now we have two more finals to go and we want to finish the season strong.”
