Erling Haaland on record books yet again after Brentford goal


In the recent mid-week match against Brentford, Erling Haaland scored a goal in a 1-0 victory, bringing his season total to 22 goals. His goal came as Kristoffer Ajer slipped, allowing Haaland a clear run at Mark Flekken’s goal. This accomplishment added another Premier League record to Haaland’s name, making him just the second player, alongside Harry Kane, to score against every team he has faced in the league.

Haaland has achieved this feat only in his second season which speaks in abundance about how influential he has been in front of goal for Manchester City since he moved from Borussia Dortmund.

Pep Guardiola in his post-match press conference was full of praises for Haaland, who has been under fire lately.

“No, definitely. If I had to choose one (striker for that moment) I prefer to choose this one. When I was young, I was told about top strikers, don’t criticise them because he will shut your mouth, that’s for sure.”

“Sooner or later always they are there. He was out for two months (injured). He had an incredibly tough week last week, he lost his grandmother and it’s not easy for a human being. But he scored when he’s not in his best shape at the moment. He’s so tall, out for two months. We spoke about the moment but he didn’t say anything about the passing of his grandmother.

“We talked a little about how he feels and of course (it was tough) for his father. In these types of games, especially against Brentford you need Erling,” he added.
