Pep Guardiola explains why Erling Haaland struggled vs Manchester United

Erling Haaland failed to score in the latest Manchester derby.

Manchester City faced off with Manchester United on Saturday and were the favourites to pick up a win.

Manchester United headed into the game on a fine run of form and looking to avenge their 6-3 suffered at the hands of City back in October.

And when all was said and done, Manchester United came away with a 2-1 win to move within a point of City.

Erling Haaland started the clash but failed to score, with City’s only strike coming from Jack Grealish off the bench.

Now, Pep Guardiola has been discussing why Haaland struggled against the Red Devils.

Speaking to reporters Guardiola said: “At the moment we have that process because when teams are sat in their 18-yard box, it is more difficult but we have to find him a little bit more, yes. (Against United) he had enough touches but it’s true that when you are looking at areas and you have to look at him. But we will do it.”
