The 22-year-old, who joined the Premier League champions from Borussia Dortmund in a £51 million move last summer, set a Premier League record with 35 goals in 32 appearances, with a further four appearances conceivable.
This season, Haaland will also be aiming for a treble, with the club still in contention for the Premier League, Champions League, and FA Cup.
With four games remaining in the Premier League season, City currently leads the table by one point over Arsenal.
On May 17, Pep Guardiola’s team will face Real Madrid in the second leg of their Champions League semi-final. The opening leg ended in a tie.
City is also in the FA Cup final, where they will face Manchester United on June 3 at Wembley Stadium.
For the second year in a row, Chelsea’s Sam Kerr has been crowned FWA women’s player of the year.
The Australia international has 10 goals in 18 WSL appearances this season and scored her 50th league goal earlier this month in England.
Kerr has three league titles, two FA Cups, and two League Cups to her name since joining Chelsea in the 2019-20 season.
This season, Chelsea is attempting to win the Premier League and the FA Cup. The Blues have a game in hand on leaders Manchester United in the WSL championship battle, and will meet United in the FA Cup final in front of a sold-out crowd at Wembley on Sunday.
