Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola reveals Erling Haaland’s biggest talent

Pep Guardiola has been speaking about the partnership between Erling Haaland and Phil Foden.


Haaland has hit the ground running in England so far, netting three goals in three Premier League games.

However, that tally could easily have been higher had Phil Foden decided to pass to Haaland on two occasions.

He missed clear chances to square it to the Norwegian vs Bournemouth and Newcastle United last weekend.

Now, ahead of facing Crystal Palace, Pep Guardiola was asked about these issues again and had this to say:

“Two similar actions - I am sure you remember - when we played in Anfield last season, it was a similar action when Phil shoots and scores, but maybe in that time we did not have a proper striker,” Pep said.

“But now we know - Julian as well - that Erling will always be there. Sometimes he will be in a similar position, shoot and score and I want that, but now he will see the replays and know that Erling will always be there - that’s his biggest talent.”

On Foden and Haaland’s connection, he added: “It’s just a question of time and knowing each other better and see it.”

Manchester City vs Crystal Palace

Manchester City head into the Palace clash having played out one of the games of the season last weekend vs Newcastle.

City had to settle for a draw in the end, but it was still a quality game for the neutrals.

That result, though, does mean that City are now second in the Premier League and the gap between themselves and Liverpool is not as big as some fans would have hoped for.

This weekend, meanwhile, the Sky Blues face a tough test in Crystal Palace. The Eagles have had an average start to the campaign – winning one, drawing one and losing one.

But Patrick Vieira and co. will take solace in the fact they took points off Man City in both their encounters last term and were one of just three sides to beat the Manchester outfit.
