PREMIER LEAGUE record goalscorer Alan Shearer trolled Manchester City superstar Erling Haaland after his successful debut against West Ham.
Haaland, 22, played in his first-ever Prem game at London Stadium and led City to a 2-0 win over the Hammers with a scintillating double.
The forward has been on fire since he joined Red Bull Salzburg in 2019, scoring 29 goals in 27 games in Austria before joining Borussia Dortmund in 2020.
The 22-year-old Norway international proved his goalscoring streak with Salzburg was no fluke as he scored a further 86 goals in 89 games with Dortmund before joining Etihad this summer.
Many expect Tormaschine Haaland to take the Premier League by storm and maybe even break records.
But the league’s 260-goal record scorer, Shearer, put Haaland in his place after his double with a cheeky message on Twitter.
The Newcastle legend reminded the Norwegian sensation that he still has a long way to go to equal his Prem record.
clipper tweeted: “@ErlingHaaland 258 to go!!!!”
However, former England international’s BBC pundit Gary Lineker believes Haaland will make his mark in the top flight.
Lineker revealed that the centre-forward’s goal counts will be “huge”.

The match-of-the-day expert tweeted: “He’s unstoppable, that’s @ErlingHaaland. A real striker whose goalscoring will be huge. A truly outstanding talent.”
While Sun columnist Piers Morgan wrote: “Haaland is amazing.”
Haaland and Shearer recently had a chance to meet ahead of the former’s City debut.
The star striker shared a snap of him and the Blackburn legend on Instagram and hinted he had asked for some scoring tips ahead of the biggest challenge of his career.
Haaland posted: “Got some tips from this guy today.”
