The foot injury Erling Haaland suffered on international duty was a non-issue Saturday as the Norwegian struck another milestone in Manchester City's 1-1 draw with Liverpool.

Haaland is now the quickest player to reach 50 Premier League goals, doing so in just 48 appearances, an incredible 17 fewer than previous record-holder Andy Cole.

Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold canceled out Haaland's 27th-minute opener with just 10 minutes to go in the match, denying City a chance to extend their lead atop the table.

Arsenal eventually leapfrogged City into first place with a 1-0 win over Brentford in Saturday's evening fixture.
