Haaland tells ‘Man City’ to look at game by game

Manchester City striker Erling Haaland believes the best way to compete for the Premier League title is to not overthink it and take it one game at a time.

The Blues were fresh off an important win over Nottingham Forest as they relieved the pressure from a poor run of form when Haaland, a substitute, scored a goal to make it 2-0 in the second half

. such It was the Norwegian striker’s 21st goal in the Premier League this season and sent him to the top scorer again.

But Haaland’s instinct and potency in front of goal – alongside the quality and quantity of chances coming his way – means he is still the Premier League’s top scorer with 21 goals.

“Haaland is a goalscorer, simple as that,” said former Newcastle, Tottenham and England winger Chris Waddle.

“He isn’t known for his link-up play, dribbling or skills – he is a goalscorer and that is what he is good at.

“It was a good finish and he passed it into the bottom corner – with him coming back he will probably be the difference.”

Previous seasons teach us that City know what to do when it gets to crunch time in a title race and their performance at Forest was evidence of that.

They were second best for much of the game and had to grind it out.

Yet should they take advantage of their game in hand and win their remaining matches, they will find themselves with another trophy in the cabinet.

Former Manchester City defender Micah Richards said on ทางเข้า https://ufabet999.app Sports: “Haaland made a difference. His all-round play was excellent.

Speaking about the title challenge with Arsenal, Haaland said:

“I think the most important thing is that we don’t think. Especially during this moment.”

“It’s about taking it one day at a time. Seriously, if you think about it too much, Your head will go crazy.”

“So now it’s time to relax. And concentrate on the next game.”
